Laxative Formula 60 tablets 78416
Laxative Formula gently but effectively promotes bowel function without the use of stimulant laxatives, such as senna and cascara.* These laxatives chemically stimulate the intestines. If used on a routine basis, the bowels can become dependent on them and lose the built-in reflexes that normally help the bowels function. In contrast, Laxative Formula works with the body’s own elimination processes to promote bowel movements.*

A. Laxative Formula gently but effectively cleanses the intestinal surfaces and promotes bowel function without the use of harsh, stimulant laxatives, such as senna and cascara.† The safety of magnesium hydroxide has been well established. It does not cause cramping or urgency, nor does it cause dependency.
A. Magnesium hydroxide is safe and effective for the relief of occasional constipation.† It is an “osmotic laxative” and uses water to flush fecal matter out of the intestines. When water is drawn into the intestines, fecal matter absorbs the excess water as it forms into bowel movements. As this material swells, it puts pressure on the sides of the intestines, initiating peristalsis, the act of moving the bowels. When used as directed, it is as effective, and safer, than stimulant laxatives such as cascara and senna, which can cause laxative dependency.
