Colon Rx™ uses two research-backed ingredients to help improve bowel motility and tonicity in people with occasional constipation.* Magnesium hydroxide, a well-known ingredient that works by osmosis, draws water from surrounding tissues to the intestines; this local increase of water not only softens the stool, but it also has a positive influence on the volume of the feces, which promotes intestinal motility.* In the Ayurvedic tradition, Triphala, a classic formula, consists of three fruits, Amalaki, bibhitaki, and haritaki. Amalaki (known as Indian gooseberry or amla) is considered one of the best rejuvenating herbs. In addition to its laxative effects, Haritaki also has astringent properties and balances Vata. Bibhitaki is an excellent rejuvenative, with both laxative and astringent properties. It balances 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.*
Recommended Use: Take 2 capsules with 8 ounces of water at bedtime or as directed by your health-care practitioner.
