Hey I noticed that someone posted a message on this stuff, so I surfed for some info and this is what I found. It is really supposed to help people with all kinds of bowel problems. It is made from the shells of shellfish and it acts like a bulk laxitive. It also adheres to fat molecules in your stomach and carries it through the intestines. This lessens your absorption of the fat (an IBS irritant) which helps you to lose weight. You do not absorb it so it won't interfere with any meds that you may be on. It is supposed to act like physillum, so if physillum doesn't work for you than this might. Unfortunately it is not availiable in Canada, but you can order it from this U.S. company who will ship world wide.
Healthade International
This company ships to some other countries
There are other companies who are cheaper, but I think that they only ship in the U.S.
Hope you enjoy digesting the info!

P.S. I am sure that Flux knows more about it than I do so I am hoping that he will reply to my post.
