Are you looking for an over the counter supplement or what? Are you trying to manage constant constipation or is this more of a one time thing? Other than an enema that you can administer at home, you can take a warm bath with epsom salts that will usually soften the stool and help the elimination process. Eating plenty of fiber and greens along with adequate water intake is also important on a day to day basis for long term results, consider using a probiotic that helps with digestion and gut health is also another step that can help.
