Clear constipation for good with Intestinal Formula and clear and strengthen the whole digestive system, supporting it’s healing.
Intestinal formula comes in two strengths:
- IF1 ‘regular‘ – for occasional mild constipation.
- IF2 ‘super’ – for heavier constipation.
This stronger stimulating bowel tonic disinfects, stops putrefaction, relieves gas and cramps, improves digestion, increases the flow of bile, encourages the growth of healthy intestinal flora, acts as an antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-parasitic, and increases bowel movement.
Intestinal Formula is not habit forming, and does not weaken or release poisonous irritants to the bowel, as many laxatives do.
Chronic constipation is common, with people often moving bowels once or less a day. This results in a build up of old matter in the intestines and can result in up to only 10% of the food eaten being utilised.
Healthy bowel movements are soft like cottage cheese, coloured like wild honey and smell un-offensive. A healthy bowel moves in less than two minutes with no strain, about 20-30 minutes after you’ve eaten. Anything else is a form of constipation.
Constipation is often a sign of dehydration. Read more about dehydration symptoms and prevention here.
REMEMBER: To prevent constipation from reoccurring daily drink 8 glasses of water, start every day with a large glass of water with lemon, eat plenty of hydrating and fibre-full foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables. Mindfullness, yoga and deep relaxation can also help to relax the intestinal muscles and promote ease of (bowel) movement :-)
Cape Aloe leaf, Senna leaf and pod, Cascara sagrada aged bark, Barberry rootbark, Ginger rhizome, Garlic bulb and Cayenne fruits.
Take 1 capsule daily at supper. The following morning you should notice an increase in the activity and quantity of bowel movement. The consistency should be softer. If there is no dramatic difference, increase to 2 capsules the next evening and 1 the next morning. Keep increasing by 1 capsule per day until you achieve an ideal bowel movement. You may have to adjust the dose daily as bowel action is often governed not just by diet, but by exercise and stress levels also.
Non-habit forming. Continue to use it until you are having one bowel movement each day for every meal eaten. 2-4 bowel movements a day is perfectly normal and indeed absolutely desirable.
