FloralaxÂ® II is a unique laxative formula with three natural sources of high quality fibre rolled into one: flax seeds, psyllium husks and oat bran.
One of the main ingredients in FloralaxÂ® II is psyllium, which is 60% to 70% soluble fibre. When ingested with the proper amount of water or juice, psyllium can swell up to 100 times its original volume, providing bulk to promote optimum elimination through the colon. In this bulk form, psyllium acts as a sponge that absorbs intestinal toxins and brings gentle relief to those experiencing occasional constipation.
Defatted flax seeds are utilized because they swell up with water, providing additional mucilage, which helps keep the fecal matter soft. Oat bran offers a third source of fibre and is extremely easy to digest. First, the gel from the psyllium husks and flax seeds encourage activity to begin in the small intestine and then the oat bran works as a broom to sweep out the large intestine.
