Herbal medicine for for constipation and bloating

for constipation and bloating

Herbal medicine with 12 herbs and 3 minerals can be used short-term (1-2 weeks) or when travelling for acute constipation.

  •  Mild to stronger laxative effect.

Herbal power for an active digestion without detours

The herbs and minerals support bowel emptying.

Constipation can be caused by insufficient fluid intake, unfavourable or unfamiliar food (when travelling), stress or lack of exercise (bed rest). It is often characterised by hard stools, pain during bowel movements, feelings of tension in the pelvic area and a distended abdomen.

However, it is also used in diseases and circumstances that require easy bowel evacuation (e.g. haemorrhoidal disease).

The formula has a mild (1 tablet) to stronger (2 tablets) laxative effect. The effect is delayed, usually after about 8 hours.

The proven remedie from Tibetan medicine is available in Swiss pharmacies and drugstores in the packaging sizes of 20 tablets.

In foucs

We speak of constipation when bowel movements occur less than three times a week and bowel emptying is difficult.

The effectsof the components of the valuable medicinal plants and minerals in PADMA LAX:

Bitter substances

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

Essential oils from ginger root and Indian long pepper are antispasmodic and work against flatulence (carminative).

Sodium sulfate

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.

Dosage

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.
