Blackmores Colon Care

Blackmores Colon Care helps to relieve constipation and support bowel function.  Blackmores Colon Care is a laxative formula with fibre and herbs to assist the functioning of the colon.


Why use Blackmores Colon Care

  • Promotes elimination and rids the body of waste
  • Contains herbs traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to relieve constipation

 

The Blackmores Difference

Blackmores Colon Care is a pleasant tasting powder that can be swallowed with water, added to food or made into a tea. The dosage can be easily adjusted according to need.

The herbs used in this formula have a laxative effect.  The herbs senna and buckthorn both contain compounds called anthraquinone glycosides which work by stimulating peristalsis.

Other laxative herbs have high mucilage content, such as the herbs psyllium and agar.  These herbs increase the bulk of the stool, which stimulates evacuation.
