Colon Rx™ uses two proven ingredients to improve bowel motility and tonicity in people with occasional constipation. Magnesium hydroxide, a well known ingredient in laxative and antacid formulas, works by osmosis, drawing water from surrounding tissues to the intestines. This local increase of water not only softens the stool but also and has a positive influence on the volume of the feces, which promotes intestinal motility.
Triphala, a classic formula in Ayurvedic medicine, consists of the three fruits, amalaki, bibhitaki, and haritaki. Amalaki (known as Indian gooseberry or amla) is a strong natural antioxidant and is considered one of the best rejuvenating herbs in Ayurveda. In addition to laxative effects, Haritaki also has astringent properties and balances Vata. Bibhitaki is an excellent rejuvenative, with both, laxative and astringent properties. It eliminates excess mucous, balancing the Kapha dosha.
Colon Rx™ can be used for short periods of time as a fast acting mild laxative for occasional constipation, or as a daily bowel tonic.
