Floralax Laxative Powder 7.1 oz. Powder
is a unique laxative formula with three natural sources of high quality fiber rolled into one: organic flax seeds, psyllium husks and organic oat bran. The primary ingredient in Flora Lax is psyllium husks, because they contain 60% to 70% soluble fiber, more than eight times that of oat bran.* When ingested with the proper amount of water, psyllium can swell up to 100 times its original volume, providing bulk to fecal mass.* In this bulk form, psyllium acts as a sponge that absorbs intestinal toxins and helps maintain healthy blood cholesterol levels.* It moves quickly through the colon, because it has a lubricant action equal to that of oil, but is not oily. It contains no nutrients. These husks are almost tasteless and they are a good choice for those with an aversion to oily supplements. Defatted flax seeds are used because they swell up with water and form mucilage, which keeps fecal matter soft.* The seeds are defatted because the active ingredient, lignin, is found in high concentration in the fiber of the seed, and not in the oil of the whole flax seeds. Lignans are phytoestrogens that act as antioxidants and have a balancing effect on hormones.* Oat bran offers an additional source of fiber and is extremely easy to digest. First, the gel from the psyllium husks and flax seeds encourage activity to begin in the small intestines and then the oat bran works as a broom to sweep out the large intestine.* The lactose in Flora Lax benefits the colon by helping promote friendly bacteria growth.*
Anyone needing a natural laxative, as Flora Lax works on all three organs of digestion: the small intestine, the large intestine and the colon.* Also beneficial as part of a whole-body detoxifying program.*
Defatted flaxseed*, psyllium husks, and oat bran*. There are no additves, colorings, or artificial preservatives. * Organic Floralax contains 54% organic ingredients.
