Thorne Research, Herbal Laxative, 90 Veggie Caps
- Dietary Supplement
- 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.
Take 1 capsule daily as needed or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.
