This product will have a calming effect on the bowel and will provide you with relief from a bloating sensation. Traditional physicians have always recommended to relieve constipation. The way senna does this is by stimulating the muscular contraction of the colon and stimulating the pressure of moving the food along the gut. Similarly buckthorn buck is a powerful but gentle laxative and supports the gastrointestinal tract. Psyllium husk is well known for its fibre content and helps provide bulk.
