Integrative Therapeutics Laxative Formula is a dietary suppelement for gastrointestinal support. Many of us who suffer from occasional constipation would like to find a laxative supplement to provide worry free regularity. A good laxative supplement should not rely on senna, cascara, or other stimulants that can lead to laxative dependency and discomfort. Laxative Formula relies on three non-stimulant ingredients to provide gentle, natural support of proper digestion. These ingredients include: magnesium hydroxide which draws water into the intestines easing elimination, Mucilage Blend (marshmallow root extract slippery elm bark, and fenugreek seed extract) which supports healthy intestinal mucous and Soothing Blend (fennel seed, ginger rhizome extract, and peppermint leaf) which supports and soothes intestinal muscles. At OVitaminPro we understand the importance of a non-stimulant, natural laxative supplement to anyone with occasional constipation, and we are confident in recommending the triple targeted ingredient combination in Laxative Formula.
Recommended usage: Take 2 tablets at bedtime or as recommended by your healthcare professional. May increase to 3 tablets at bedtime, if needed. Reduce dosage if you experience abdominal discomfort or diarrhea. If discomfort persists, discontinue use.

from Huntsville, AL asked:
April 2, 2017
Can this be used more than occasionally? I am on an opiate medication therefore I definitely do not have occasional constipation. Depending on my diet alone, I can go 10 days & will still have to resort to a laxative. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much, Jes
Yes this is non addictive aid so can be used over a long period of time without issues. You might also try adding 500 mg. of magnesium before bed.
