Natural Laxatives: Constipation Remedies


How would it change your life if you didn’t have to worry about constipation or other bowel problems?

This kind of struggle is tough to live with and really does affect your quality of life, in terms of the direction your day can take when you are uncomfortable or hurting.

If you have searched for constipation remedies and are not satisfied with what you’ve found so far, I encourage you to take a look at a product that has been around a long, long time and that still is one of the most best kept secrets. It is also one of the most popular products of the Shaklee brand.

Today we talk about Shaklee Herb-lax that is loved by so many people who have had discomfort from things like constipation, other bowel issues, or other digestive issues, and would not be without its daily use.

Herb-lax is a proprietary blend, and trust me that you won’t find anything even close to it anywhere!

Shaklee is one of the oldest nutrition companies in the U.S. and still the #1 Natural Nutrition Company in America – the products are unique and stand the test of time.

In fact, Herb-lax was the second product Dr. Shaklee made, over 60 years ago. He was always said to be a man way ahead of his time, and this product that he felt the important need to develop is still very much needed and used today.

Maybe I am such a fan because I have taken it for 35 years last month! Yes, this is the product that first introduced me to the Shaklee brand of whole food supplements, because that is what I was in search of all those years ago:  a solution to constipation.

While I learned more about healthy eating, including adding more fiber in my diet and drinking more pure, natural water, I also learned about the many benefits of taking Shaklee Herb-lax even when I wasn’t constipated anymore.  It is a special formulation that is designed to help the movement of food through your intestinal system.

One thing I discovered is that by consuming it, your body can better absorb other nutrients which is so important to your good health.  Second is that you don’t have to be constipated to have a junky bowel.  You can move your bowels many times a day, and still be harboring dead cells, decaying food materials, chemicals, parasites, etc.  This can contribute to toxins being circulated in your body, and may result in you getting sick or disease conditions.

For occasional irregularity, Shaklee Herb-Lax is a gentle, natural laxative that uses a unique combination of senna leaf and other herbs to help keep your digestive system healthy and regular.

Shaklee Herb-Lax

SENNA (Cassia angustifolia) – Senna stimulates colon activity and produces a laxative effect.  Studies have confirmed the benefit of using Senna when constipation is present.  It increases the moisture content for easier movement of the bowel.

Shaklee notes:

Herb-Lax® is an enhanced proprietary blend that includes senna leaf, which has traditionally been used as a natural laxative.

  • Act as a gentle laxative for occasional use
  • Encourage a mild cleansing action to aid the body’s natural processes and help relieve occasional constipation

Why Use Natural Laxatives

Natural laxatives can be good to use if you are looking for more natural help with constipation and don’t want discomfort or side effects, or to become dependent on chemical based laxatives.

If you are not able to be physically active and struggle to maintain regular bowel function, a natural, gentle laxative supplement can be helpful without side effects.

The natural healing profession has believed for many years that over 90% of degenerative disease conditions can be related directly to intestinal stasis, or a condition of stagnation within the bowels or related organs. That doesn’t have to mean actual constipation, so we need to keep these organs clean.
