Designs for Health ColonRx 60c can be used as a fast-acting, mild laxative for short periods of time, or as a daily bowel detoxifier for anyone in need of a long term tonic to help strengthen and tonify the bowels. ColonRx™ utilizes two proven ingredients, magnesium hydroxide and triphala, to improve bowel motility and tonicity. Magnesium hydroxide, a well known ingredient in laxative and antacid formulas, works by osmosis, drawing water from surrounding tissues to the intestines. This local increase of water not only softens the feces but actually increase the volume of the feces which promotes intestinal motility. Triphala, a classic formula in Ayurvedic medicine, consists of three fruits Amalaki, Bibhitaki, and Haritaki. Amalaki (known as Indian gooseberry or amla) is a strong natural antioxidant and is considered one of the best rejuvenating herbs in Ayurveda. Haritaki has the strongest laxative powers of these three fruits. The herb also has astringent properties and balances Vata. Bibhitaki is an excellent rejuvenative, with both, laxative and astringent properties. It eliminates excess mucous, balancing the Kapha dosha.
As a dietary supplement, take two capsules with eight ounces of water at bedtime, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
