The individual herbs from PADMA LAX work like a network and complement each other to form a harmonious interplay. Pure plant power.
In accordance with the principles of Tibetan Medicine, the composition of PADMA LAX comprises major and minor components. The individual components in the mixture are low doses and achieve their therapeutic effect in a way that is mutually complementary and reinforcing.
The valuable medicinal plants and minerals in PADMA LAX are described in the literature with these effects:
Bitter substances containing from colombo root, condurango rind, gentian root, inula and vomica seeds substances stimulate the production of gastric juices, support digestive processes in the stomach and in the small intestine, and stimulate the liver.
Essential oils from ginger root and Indian long pepper are antispasmodic and work against flatulence (carminative).
Attracts water and acts as an osmotic laxative.
1.8-Dihydroxy-anthracenderivate containing plants
The containing plants (dry extract of Aloe, Buckthorn bark, Cascara rind, and rhubarb root) have a laxative effect, which comes through two mechanisms. On one hand, they affect colon movement (peristalsis), and on the other hand, they stimulate the active secretion of chloride ions in the intestinal lumen, which increases the water in the bowel contents. This leads to faster motility and a softer stool.
Adults take 1-2 pills with plenty of liquid (minimum 1 glass of warm water) before going to bed or 1 hour before breakfast. Children 12 years of age take 1 tablet.
Children under 12 years should be given PADMA LAX only on doctor’s orders.
The laxative effect is mild (1 tablet) to stronger (2 tablets) and has a delayed effect of ca. 8 hours. Therefore, it is recommended to take it in the evening.
It is generally recommended to keep an interval of 1-2 hours between the intake of different medicines.
Ancient knowledge about a unique formula
PADMA LAX is based on a Tibetan formula that has been used for centuries. It is one of the most important formulas, as healthy digestive energy is considered the power centre and the source of life energy.
Success story for over 50 years
PADMA AG began producing Tibetan herbal compositions according to western pharmaceutical standards as early as 1969.
One year later, the Intercantonal Agency for Therapeutic Products of Switzerland (IKS, today Swissmedic) released the first Tibetan formula PADMA LAX for sale. This was formula no. 179 from the valuable collection of prescriptions.
Switzerland has taken a pioneering position in this respect, in that the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products, Swissmedic, recognises the complementary medicine category “Tibetan remedies” and has registered Tibetan medicine medicines with PADMA LAX since 1970.
The formula is unique worldwide and has been part of the Swiss phyto medicinal treasure trove for over 50 years.
