Blackmores Peritone is an effective, gentle herbal laxative.
Blackmores Peritone combines laxative herbs with carminatives to prevent griping pain that is often associated with laxatives.
Formulated for effective morning response to 'before bedtime dosage'
The laxative herbs in this formula (Cape Aloes, Cascara) contain anthraquinone glycosides which cause peristalsis of the bowel wall, stimulating evacuation (normally around 8 hours after intake).
Ginger, Cardamom and Peppermint are carminative herbs that help relieve the discomfort associated with constipation, as well as preventing the griping pain that is often associated with laxative use.
Blackmores Peritone is an effective, gentle herbal laxative. The herbs have traditionally been used in Western herbal medicine to relieve symptoms of constipation. To improve bowel regularity we recommend that plenty of water and fibre be included in the diet.
