The Laxative Formula combines natural ingredients to gently and effectively improve regularity. As proper elimination is a corner-stone to good health, this formula offers results without harsh stimulants.
Cascara Sagrada Extract: a gentle and effective laxative herb that some herbalists say is not habit forming. In the Laxative Formula the cascarosides are standardized extracts so cascara's efficacy is consistent. Cascara works primarily on the large intestine, stimulating peristalsis.
Rhubarb Root Extract: it has been used for centuries as a key ingredient in laxative preparations. Chinese herbalists have used rhubarb to treat a variety of disorders of the upper digestive tract. So not only is rhubarb an excellent colon cleanser, it also has wider therapeutic applications. Rhubarb contains vitamins A, C and B-complex and is high in calcium.
Cool Capsicum: capsicum acts as a catalyst, increasing the effectiveness of the other herbs.
Gentian Root Powder: a bitter herb that improves gastric juice secretion and promotes peristalsis and bile flow.
Flax Meal Powder: Not only is flax very high in omega-3 fatty acids, it also contributes to intestinal health. Flax absorbs up to eight times its own weight in water and makes a very good bulking agent.
Peppermint Oil: peppermint has an antispasmodic effect on the smooth muscle of the digestive system and is helpful for flatulence and colic.
