Agiolax Granules 100 g Aids in the relief of constipation
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.
Mechanism of Action:
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
