Ayurveda texts and modern research back the following facts:
Chebulic Myrobalan (Haritaki) is revered in Ayurveda for its natural laxative property, which does not interfere with normal intestinal physiology. As a prokinetic agent, the herb stimulates intestinal motility and smooth muscle contraction, causing increased intestinal peristalsis. This action aids digestion and the absorption of food.
Trivruth (Ipomoea turpethum) is a mild laxative that treats constipation of varied etiologies.
Relieves constipation: The natural ingredients in Herbolax soften the stool and enhance intestinal motility, which relieve acute and chronic constipation effectively. Due to its laxative property, the drug assists excretion without upsetting the fluid-electrolyte balance (mineral and water balance) in the body. Herbolax is non-habit forming and does not result in physiological dependence.
Other actions: For effective preradiographic bowel preparation, Herbolax in conjunction with Himalaya’s Gasex, eliminates gas shadows, ensures better radiological interpretation and avoids repeated exposures.
Please consult your physician to prescribe the dosage that best suits the condition.
Herbolax is not known to have any side effects if taken as per the prescribed dosage.
Available as capsule and tablet.
