    i take pain medicin daily and would get constipatid a lot and tried stool softeners and other remedies that were not good for the body and did,nt work most of the time. flaxseed 1000mg. just 2 at night with dinner or after dinner works great and have never been constipated since i.ve been taking it for about 4 yrs. now. and its so good for you.
