Garden of Life Canada
The herbs in this formula are combined to have a natural cleansing or ‘laxative’ effect upon the intestinal tract. They are formulated to minimize bowel irritation and stimulate elimination through a nervous system reflex action.
- Contains Cascara sagrada, Chinese rhubarb and Alder buckthorn, which are traditionally used in herbal medicine as stimulant laxatives
- Designed for use as a short-term laxative, i.e., 1 to 30 days, when relief from constipation is desired.
- Contains no artificial preservatives, color, flavoring, sucrose, wheat, soy, corn or yeast
If recommended dosage of Laxaherb is too laxative, the amount can be decreased after 3 days of the Herbal D-Tox, see recommended dose change in the information leaflet within the program box.
DIRECTIONS: Adults, take two tablets with both breakfast and supper (preferably at the beginning of the meal), or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Allow at least 6 to 12 hours for laxative effect to occur. Take a few hours before or after taking other medications or health products. Consult your healthcare Practitioner for use beyond 7 days.
