Sluggish bowels? Constipation? – plant-based relief from nature!
Constipation refers to when bowel movements are less often than three times per week.

Possible causes: 

  • Organic diseases
  • Too little liquid
  • Taking certain medicines
  • Lack of exercise
  • Too little fibre intake

We recommend to first establish the cause and to support bowel activity according to recommendations. You should first seek to regulate your bowel activity through natural means before resorting to laxatives. Laxatives should only be taken in the short term, as these can have a negative influence on the mineral and fluid balance in the body.

The plant-based laxative Legapas® drops contain the plant extract of cascara bark, which has already been used for centuries to support sluggish digestion.

Legapas® works in 2 ways on the digestive tract: 

  • Increased depositing of salts and water in the intestine
  • Reduced return of these substances from the intestine into the body

The effect of this:

  • Volume increase of the intestinal content
  • Increase in fullness pressure
  • Stimulates emptying
  • Stimulates intestinal muscle movement (peristalsis)

Legapas® therefore has a mild laxative effect and offers gentle help against constipation.

Further advice:

  • Ensure a healthy diet: eat foods that are rich in vital substances and fibre. Cereals, pulses, fruit and vegetables, for example, have a high fibre content. Reduce the amount of sugar and meat in your meals.
  • Plenty of exercise – even a walk helps to support digestion.
  • Enough liquid – drink at least 2-3 litres per day, ideally unsweetened tea or water.

Home remedies that swell such as bran, linseed or Psyllium seeds can also stimulate the appetite, but should be taken with sufficient liquid.
