Sorry for the gross topic but I'm so curious as to how this works! I've always struggled with slow bowels. I've tried it all fiber, water, yogurt, probiotics... Recently a local fitness trainer told me about this product Colon Cleanzyme and I thought I'd try it. I've been using it for more than a month and it's working wonders. But I don't understand why. Apparently digestive enzyme disorders are nearly unheard of and enzymes should have no effect on bowel movements. Is there a laxative in this product? Here is a link to the website. I don't see anything here that's alarming but maybe I just don't know what to look for

The only other thing that has consistently worked for me is prunes and herbal laxatives, so I'm a bit leery I guess. Googling isn't giving me any answers. Anyone with any insight on this please chime in!

I don't have any insight on that, but I am bumping up your post for input.
