Possible Side Effects

The Bottom Line
Lepicol Plus+ Digestive Enzymes looks like a good fiber-solution product. It contains psyllium husk which helps in maintaining healthy bowel movements. The blended enzymes and gut flora strains facilitate peristalsis and digestion while fiber adds bulk to food preventing constipation. However, Lepicol Plus+ does not come with any commitment from the manufacturer indicating that the manufacturer is not entirely confident that the product works. Secondly, during this research, we identified that the customer reviews have a significant time difference which might indicate that Lepicol Plus+ is not commonly used.
