100G MADAUS AGIOLAX PLANT BASED PRODUCT GRANULAT LAXATIVE RELIEVE CONSTIPATION "Agiolax" formulated by MADAUS GmbH , Federal Republic of Germany Agiolax is a laxative indicated for constipation, particularly the chronic forms Decription A characteristic of Agiolax is that its mode of action combines both physical and pharmacological factors. The Plantago seeds are particularly good bulk producers. The bulk thus created acts as a natural stimulant on the stretch receptors in the intestinal wall. The contents of the intestine are given a semi-solid consistency in the higher sections of the large intestine by the indigestible hemicelluloses. Dilation of the bowel by a bulk producing medium How to use Agiolax should be taken after the evening meal and before breakfast. The general dosage is 1 - 2 teaspoonfuls - according to the individual requirement - followed by a glass of liquid. Agiolax should not be chewed. After the preparation has been effective, the dosage can be individually reduced to to 1 teaspoonful once or twice daily. Due to its natural mode of action, Agiolax ensures the desired response for most people within 12 - 24 hours Ingredients Isphagula Husk 0.11 g Tinnevelly Senna Pods 15 mg - MECHANISM OF ACTION: Top - Its Fiber: Fiber deficiency is the most common cause of constipation. Agiolax® fiber swells in water to form a mucilaginous mass. This ensures adequate stool hydration, increased fecal volume, reduced intraluminal pressure, which increases peristaltic activity and normalizes the intestinal transit time. - It’s a Laxative: The fiber is balanced by natural senna glycosides in order to form an ideal blend. Agiolax® also contains senna which gently stimulates the bowel function, because fiber alone often cannot normalize intestinal transit time. - Its granules: Only the right galenical formulation ensures the maximum effect of the active ingredients. Agiolax®’s galenical formulation is a unique protection against early swelling. The coating ensures that Agiolax® exerts its action specifically in the colon, the site of constipation. - INDICATIONS: Top Constipation, particularly the chronic form. Regulation of bowel activity during pregnancy and post partum. In patients confined to bed. Habituation to strong purgatives. Disordered bowel action in patients with colostomies. DIRECTION FOR USE: Top Agiolax® should be taken after the evening meal and before breakfast. The general dosage is 1 – 2 teaspoonfuls – according to the individual requirement – followed by a glass of liquid. Agiolax® should not be chewed. After the preparation has been effective, the dosage can be individually reduced to ½ to 1 teaspoonful once or twice daily.
