Laxative Formula gently but effectively promotes bowel function without the use of stimulant laxatives, such as senna and cascara.* These laxatives chemically stimulate the intestines. If used on a routine basis, the bowels can become dependent on them and lose the built-in reflexes that normally help the bowels function. In contrast, Laxative Formula works with the body's own elimination processes to promote bowel movements.*
