Herbal Laxative (to be discontinued)


After careful consideration, we have decided to discontinue Herbal Laxative, rather than continuing to reformulate the product. One by one, the ingredients in the product have become impossible to source. We will sell out existing limited inventory and then no longer offer the product. We will continue to sell our fiber products FiberMend and MediBulk.

A gentle, effective laxative*

  • when fiber is not enough
  • supports healthy bowel movements*
  • for occasional constipation*

Item Product Size Price
SF768 Herbal Laxative (to be discontinued) 90 Vegetarian Capsules $15.10

Product Information

When dietary changes, increased water consumption, and fiber are not enough, Herbal Laxative can be used as an effective but gentle bowel stimulant for occasional (but not chronic) constipation.* It contains herbs with laxative properties, including Cascara, rhubarb, and senna.* Herbal Laxative should not be used when an individual has abdominal pain or diarrhea, and it is not intended for long-term use.

Rheum (Chinese rhubarb) demonstrates both laxative and antispasmodic effects.* Cascara sagrada is an intestinal laxative and also tonifies the liver and gall bladder.* Senna is a well-established herbal laxative; its purgative qualities are believed to be due to its anthraquinone content.* The traditional uses for both blue flag (Iris versicolor) and Rhamnus frangula include occasional constipation relief and liver support.*
