Blackmores Retail Colon Care 90g
The herbs used in this formula have a laxative effect. Laxative herbs work in different ways. Some laxatives stimulate peristalsis, which is the contraction of the smooth muscle of the bowel, promoting evacuation and thus helping to relieve constipation. The herbs senna and buckthorn both contain compounds called anthraquinone glycosides which work by stimulating peristalsis.Other laxatives have a high mucilage content, such as the herbs psyllium and agar. These herbs increase the bulk of the stool, which stimulates evacuation.
