A well known herbal combination, containing a number of herbs that help with a sluggish bowel.
The herbs in this formula are
Cascara is different to other laxatives, instead of being an irritant to the body, it produces more bile, which increases the peristaltic contraction or the normal squeezing and contraction of the bowel.
Buckthorn which is part of the same family as Cascara, has also been added for its laxative effect. Liquorice is frequently used in cases of stomach distress due to irritated mucous membranes such as ulcers or in the case of constipation.
Capsicum and ginger are both warming digestive herbs that increase the efficacy of the formulation as well as aiding digestion.
Couch grass has a laxative action.
Oregon Grape, like Cascara, also helps stimulate bile production which in turn can help with peristaltic contraction.
Red Clover has an antispasmodic effect to helps combat griping.
