We cannot prescribe it online for your safety. Hence we recommend that you meet a doctor in your area and he will prescribe it for you.

Doctor :   As it dissolves in water in the gut, soluble fiber forms a thick viscous gel which absorbs excess water as it passes largely intact through the intestinal tract
Doctor :   Please fill this form I send, and say done when done.
Doctor :   The best way to prepare insoluble fiber foods like vegetables, nuts and fruits is to peel, chop, seed, dice, before cooking and if necessary blend/puree before eating.
Doctor :   Drink plenty of water
