Generally yes but we recommend consulting with your doctor first.
Reports of bloating or stomach upset are rare for H2Go. As with any regularity product, too high an intake may cause diarrhea. There also are many side benefits to taking H2Go. Published studies suggest that magnesium may benefit heartburn, maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keep bones strong.*

Yes. The H2Go mini-tabs are small and easy to swallow. A H2Go mini-tab is approximately the size as common aspirin tablet.
Most integrative health specialists recommend that you:
- Eat at least 25 grams of fiber daily.
- Drink 6 glasses or more of water.
- Exercise routinely.
- Empty your colon at the same time every day.
- For Overnight Relief: Take 6 Tablets with water before bed.
- For Daily Regularity: Take 6 tablets with water before bed for the first three days. Reduce intake by 1 tablet day, until you reach your personal comfort level.
- For A Gentle Colon Cleanse: Take 6 Tablets with water before bed for 7 consecutive days.
Yes, for many people at an intake of 1-2 H2Go min-tabs nightly. Regularity supplements and laxatives can create a dependency problem, in which progressively higher intakes over time are needed for a bowel movement. Many of these products work by irritating or artificially stimulating the colon to move, neither of which is healthy. H2Go works much differently, There is no irritation or stimulation involved. Rather, H2Go uses Active Magnesia to direct water to the colon and soften stools.* Two H2Go tablets contain less magnesium than FDA daily recommended levels and just a fraction of the levels in other magnesium regularity brands. That is why H2Go can be taken daily.
H2Go is a hyper-osmotic, meaning it actively moves water to the colon and holds it there to soften stools for comfortable elimination. Unlike other magnesium products, H2Go is effective at low intake, That means less dependency concerns so common with other regularity products.*
Herbal colon products typically work by irritating the colon, causing the bowel to rid itself of irritation. Over time, the irritation may increase in order for the colon to move. Stimulant laxatives, on the other hand, artificially trigger a bowel movement. Herbal/stimulant products can create dependency and do not address the underlying need for water in the colon to soften stools. H2Go does. Fiber products also bring water to the colon but may cause bloating, nausea and gassiness; they may also be difficult to swallow. H2Go min-tabs are very small and well tolerated.*
H2Go contains Active Magnesia™, a uniqueform of magnesium. Active Magnesia has up to four times the surface area of ordinary magnesium. More surface area means more water directed to the colon, softening stools for easy elimination.* Much higher levels of ordinary magnesium would be needed for comparable results. That level may not be suitable for daily use.
For overnight benefits, we recommend taking H2Go at bedtime. Take it with at least 6 oz of water.
H2Go was developed for women and men who wish to maintain daily regularity in an effective and healthy manner. It is also for people who have not found success with other “occasional constipation” products. H2Go works much differently than herbal or stimulant regularity products. H2Go also can be used as a gentle colon cleanse.*
Popular in Japan for decades, H2Go is a natural, mineral supplement, unlike any other. Taken daily. H2Go helps keep you regular without the bulk of fiber or the irritation/stimulation of harsh laxatives.*
