Pleasant tasting powder can be swallowed with water, added to food or made into a tea
Powdered formulation allows the dosage to be easily adjusted according to need.
The herbs used in this formula have a laxative effect.¯» Laxative herbs work in different ways.¯» Some laxatives stimulate peristalsis, which is the contraction of the smooth muscle of the bowel, promoting evacuation and thus helping to relieve constipation.¯» The herbs senna and buckthorn both contain compounds called anthraquinone glycosides which work by stimulating peristalsis.
Other laxatives have a high mucilage content, such as the herbs psyllium and agar.¯» These herbs increase the bulk of the stool, which stimulates evacuation.
