Product Overview


  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic
  • A Gentle, Effective Laxative
  • When Fiber is not Enough
  • Supports Healthy Bowel Movements
  • Made without Flowing Agents that can Inhibit Bioavailability

When dietary changes, increased water consumption, and fiber are not enough, Herbal Laxative can be used as an effective but gentle bowel stimulant for occasional (but not chronic) constipation. It contains herbs with laxative properties, including Cascara, rhubarb, and senna. Herbal Laxative should not be used when an individual has abdominal pain or diarrhea, and it is not intended for long-term use.

Rheum (Chinese rhubarb) demonstrates both laxative and antispasmodic effects. Cascara sagrada is an intestinal laxative and also tonifies the liver and gall bladder. Senna is a well-established herbal laxative; its purgative qualities are believed to be due to its anthraquinone content. The traditional uses for both blue flag (Iris versicolor) and Rhamnus frangula include occasional constipation relief and liver support.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule daily as needed or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Other Ingredients

Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide.

Frangula purshiana standardized to Cascarosides 80%. Rheum PE 5:1. Frangula alnus PE 4:1. Senna standardized to Sennosides 20%

The best herbal laxative

Posted by 5457154786707941544 on Oct 17, 2013

For a compromised digestive system - with chronic constipation, the best laxative I have ever used. Absolutely no cramps, and I am certain this is improving my regularity - ie. I seem to have been able to decrease my once daily dosage of this tablet.

Gentle and Effective

No cramping or bloating and Thorne Herbal Laxative works in a time frame which is predictable so you won't be caught "unexpectedly". I trust this product; it is gentle and effective.
