Dr Joolz very kindly found out what Movicol is -
"Macrogol is an inert substance that passes through the gut without being absorbed into the body. It relieves constipation because it causes the water it is taken with to be retained in the bowel instead of being absorbed into the body. This increases the water content and volume of the stools in the bowel, making them softer and easier to pass."
Great choice for a shopping list then!!
And what the hell is a 'cynthic card'?
