Fybogel Mebeverine provides natural relief from symptoms of abdominal pain and bowel dysfunction associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The sachets dissolve quickly in water for a pleasant tasting drink.

This sugar and gluten-free treatment contains mebeverine hydrochloride and natural ispaghula or psyllium husk fibre to help improve the digestive system and maintain regularity. Psyllium husks are a portion of seeds of a plant called Plantago ovata, which belongs to the plantain family. This product remains undigested in the gut where it absorbs water and produces slime, thereby increasing the volume and softness of stool and making it easier to pass.

Fybogel mebeverine contains two active ingredients: psyllium husk, a bulk-forming laxative, and mebeverine, an antispasmodic.

Psyllium is a type of fibre. It is used to treat constipation and can also be used in the maintenance of normal bowel function in various bowel disorders. Psyllium swells when it comes into contact with fluid in the gut and thus increases the volume of the faeces. It is not absorbed into the body. The increased mass in bowel stimulates the muscles in the walls of the bowel to push the content of the bowel along, which helps relieve constipation. It can take a few days of taking the medicine for the bowel movement to be improved.

Mebeverine works by relaxing the muscle in the walls of the intestine. This relieves painful muscle spasms in the gut and reduces related symptoms like colicky abdominal pain and cramps, bloating, wind, and diarrhoea alternating with constipation.
