Dear Dr.

I am very satisfied with your answer.

Dr. my mother with 62 years old frequently have problem of constipation and because of that she have frequently omitting and dihariya.  Now she is taking Lactifiber powder daily at night before going to bed, and she reduced the problem of constipation, but my question is the daily consumption of lactifiber is it OK? or it have some side effect on body? actually we want to stop consumption of lactifiber but as an when she stopping, she started same problem of constipation and omitting.  please suggest or give any name of Ayurvedic  medician which will stop or minimize constipation.  Dr. Triphara Churn is OK on constipation?


Yes triphala is very safe and you can use in geriatric problems too. Its very good for free radicals and good for vitamin too. Lactofibre is also good so whenever required you can safely use it.
