A pleasant tasting mild laxative, prepared with fibre and herbs proven to gently assist cleansing of the bowel and functioning of the colon. Promotes elimination and rids the body of waste.

Special Features and Benefits:


Psyllium provides natural fibre to increase the volume of the stool and stimulate evacuation.

Aniseed powder and Liquorice root stimulate digestion and act as carminatives to prevent the griping pain commonly associated with laxative medications.

Irish Moss and Agar are demulcent herbs, soothing to an inflamed bowel.

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.

Mode of Action:
The laxative herbs in this formula (Senna and Buckthorn) contain anthraquinone glycosides which stimulate peristalsis of the bowel wall stimulating evacuation, (normally around 8 hours after intake). Psyllium, Irish Moss and Agar are sources of soluble and insoluble fibres to facilitate natural bowel movements.

Aniseed and Liquorice root are carminative herbs that are helpful to relieve the discomfort associated with constipation and to prevent the griping pain that is often associated with laxative use. Irish moss and Agar are demulcents which soothe inflamed gastric mucosa.

Contraindications and Cautions:


Prolonged use of laxatives may cause serious bowel problems. Colon Care should only be used for a few days, and it is important to ensure plenty of dietary fibre, adequate fluid intake and regular exercise.
