Since I posted the original Liver Flush post above I have had a number of occasions I seemed to pass really old mucous (not ropes, but pitch black-colored stool coated with mucous). My gut, which is not that extreme for my height/weight, has gone down noticeably although I have a ways to go before obtaining the tight, flat stomach claimed in the testimonials for it (Foley products). From what I understand it'll vary with everyone; some folks will pass material that resemble 'ropes' whilst others will not- pay attention to your weight and how you're feeling. Some days are better than others as on some I make significant progress and others I see to hit a wall; regardless I keep using the tablets and flushing every 2 weeks. Interestingly in the Foley products there are a number of herbs that influence the liver.. also the colon *cleanse* tablets seem to actually pull out the mucous whereas the colon *pills* basically are for regularity. So taking the colon pills alone would probably not produce the results for which most people are hoping.
