Infrequent or difficult bowel movements occur when waste materials move too slowly through the large intestine. While occasional irregularity poses no threat to our health, increasing episodes of constipation can lead to a number of different complaints. Since waste materials collect in the large intestine, it should empty on a daily basis to maintain intestinal health. Antigens and other materials from different bacteria in the bowel and undigested food can give rise to unpleasant symptoms of gas and bloating, fatigue, and irritability. The lack of adequate fiber and fluids in the diet often lead to a slow down of intestinal activity. Other contributing factors include lack of exercise, advanced years, metabolic inconsistencies, bowel conditions, and poor diet. The natural ingredients combined in Fen-Cho complement a healthy diet, adequate hydration, and regular exercise to help move intestinal contents regularly.†
Collinsonia root (a member of the mint family) helps support the gastrointestinal tract. While collinsonia root acts as an astringent to all mucosal surfaces, it also stimulates and tones the mucosal membranes in the gastrointestinal tract to help support regularity and gastrointestinal health. Collinsonia root promotes proper gastric juice flow and improves appetite.†
Fenugreek seeds contain steroid saponins or sapogenins; mucilage (fiber); bitter fixed oil; volatile oil; choline; trigonelline and other alkaloids; iron; calcium; chromium; potassium; flavonoids; and vitamins A, B-complex, and C. Fenugreek contributes highly nourishing demulcent fiber that provides bulk to help keep intestines clean and mobile.†
Okra provides high levels of insoluble fiber to help keep the intestinal tract healthy. Okra fruit contains mucilage, which is believed to be responsible for the effectiveness in maintaining the comfort of the lining of the gastrointestinal tract. Mucilage promotes healing due to its ability to coat various tissues providing lubrication as well as a cooling action. Okra’s lubricating properties allow waste materials to pass through the intestines more easily.†
Bovine bile salts help emulsify fats in the intestines to further enhance waste removal function. Sodium and potassium work together to help maintain water balance throughout the body.†

Our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, challenged common scientific beliefs by choosing a holistic approach of providing nutrients through whole foods. His goal was to provide nutrients as they are found in nature—in a whole food state where he believed their natural potency and efficacy would be realized. Dr. Lee believed that when nutrients remain intact and are not split from their natural associated synergists—known and unknown—bioactivity is markedly enhanced over isolated nutrients. Following this philosophy, even a small amount of a whole food concentrate will offer enhanced nutritional support, compared to an isolated or fractionated vitamin. Therefore, one should examine the source of nutrients rather than looking at the quantities of individual nutrients on product labels.
Studies on nutrients generally use large doses and these studies, some of which are cited below, are the basis for much of the information we provide you in this publication about whole food ingredients. See the supplement facts for Fen-Cho®.
