Blackmores Colon Care Herbal Blend 90g



Blackmores Colon Care is a pleasant tasting mild laxative, prepared with fibre and herbs proven to gently assist cleansing of the bowel and functioning of the colon. Blackmores Colon Care promotes elimination and rids the body of waste.

Features and benefits

Psyllium provides natural fibre to increase the volume of the stool and stimulate evacuation

Aniseed powder and Liquorice root stimulate digestion and act as carminatives to prevent the griping pain commonly associated with laxative medications

Irish Moss and Agar are demulcent herbs, soothing to an inflamed bowel

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



How it works

The laxative herbs in this formula (Senna and Buckthorn) contain anthraquinone glycosides which stimulate peristalsis of the bowel wall stimulating evacuation, (normally around 8 hours after intake). Psyllium, Irish Moss and Agar are sources of soluble and insoluble fibres to facilitate natural bowel movements.
Aniseed and Liquorice root are carminative herbs that are helpful to relieve the discomfort associated with constipation and to prevent the griping pain that is often associated with laxative use. Irish moss and Agar are demulcents which soothe inflamed gastric mucosa.


Dosage

Adults - Place 1 - 3gms (½ - 1 level teaspoon) on tongue followed by a cup of water; or add to stewed fruit, cereal or soup or, take as tea, add 3 grams (1 level tsp) to 1 cup of boiling water, steep for 10 minutes, strain & drink. Best taken last thing at night
Children (under 12 years) - 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.
Do not use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.
Always read the label. Use only as directed.
