Info: 120 Softgels (650 mg Each)

Unlike more passive forms of laxatives which just add bulk, liquid, or lubrication to the stools to facilitate evacuation, Castor Oil is a stimulant laxative, which hastens bowel movements by increasing muscle contractions on the intestinal wall.

Product Notes:

There are several situations when such a powerful measure to treat constipation may be warranted: when there has been diminished colonic motor response due to prolonged bed rest or hospitalization; or when a person's gut transit time has been slowed due to constipating drugs, irritable bowel or spastic colon syndrome, or neurologic constipation; or when a thorough evacuation is required prior to a colonoscopy.

Product Notes:

Castor Oil is an oil derived from the beans of the castor plant (Ricinus communis) and has long been recognized as a powerful laxative which may be used for the relief of occasional constipation, while fennel has been used related digestive problems such as intestinal gas or bloating.

When used in combination with Wormwood and Black Walnut, these softgels of cold pressed, hexane-free Castor Oil can also provide effective intestinal cleansing.

Ingredients:

Each softgel contains:
Castor Oil (Ricinus communis)... 650 mg
