There is unlikely to be any interaction with your BC and any fiber supplement. Think of the supplement is if it were saw dust or celery. It is just there to occupy space & has little or no reactivity with anything else in your digestive tract.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
