VitaLax is a fast-acting colon cleanser, designed for the chronically constipated in need of strong treatment for a blocked bowel. Purgatives have been combined with carminatives to prevent griping.
Originally based on a Dr. John R. Christopher formula, this tried and tested combination of active ingredients is known as the ultimate herbal laxative.
Sugar beet fibre has also been added to the formula, to offer specific support for an increase in faecal bulk and normal bowel function. It contributes to an increase in faecal bulk in two ways: the insoluble components of the fibre increase faecal bulk by absorbing water in the large intestine, while the soluble components are fermented by bacteria in the large intestine leading to an increase in bacterial mass.
As such, this source of fibre may have a beneficial physiological effect for people who want to improve or maintain a normal bowel function.
It is also a powerful intestinal cleanser, which will “blast loose” residual intestinal congestion and get any bowel cleanse programme off to a good start.
This popular herbal combination is used extensively by colon hydrotherapists in combination with colonic hydrotherapy treatments.
