Product Description
Details

Blackmores Colon Care is a laxative, prepared with fibre and herbs to assist the functioning of the colon. It promotes elimination and rids the body of waste and contains herbs traditionally used to relieve constipation.
 

  • Pleasant tasting powder can be swallowed with water, added to food or made into a tea
  • Powdered formulation allows the dosage to be easily adjusted according to need.

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.

Directions: Adults – Place 1 – 3 g (½ - 1 level metric teaspoon) on the tongue followed by a full glass of water.  Add to fresh or stewed fruit, cereals, soups or vegetables.  As a tea, add 3 g (1 level metric teaspoon) to 1 cup of boiling water, steep for 10 minutes, strain and drink.  Best taken last thing at night, before retiring.

Children – Not recommended for children under 12 years

Cautions: Prolonged use of laxatives may cause serious bowel problems. Colon Care should only be used for a few days, and it is important to ensure plenty of dietary fibre, adequate fluid intake and regular exercise.
Do not use when abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting are present, or if you develop diarrhoea.
Not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.
