Hilde Hemmes Herbal's Herbal Laxative Mix 75g
Constipation can be described as less than three bowel movements per week or less than the usual pattern. Usually the waste material has become compact and hard, making evacuation painful. It can result from a variety of causes, such as lack of exercise, insufficient water or fibre in the diet, ignoring the urge, stress and tension, or medical conditions (eg intestinal obstruction and irritable colon). In the majority of cases constipation is a consequence of lifestyle factors and can be corrected through diet and exercise.
Herbal Laxative contains senna and buckthorn which have been traditionally-used for hundreds of years because of their characteristic laxative actions. We now know these herbs contain a unique scientifically-proven class of substances called 'hydroxyanthracenes'.
