CASCARA with 10% CASCAROSIDE and BUCKTHORN at 7%-9% of GLUCOSIDI ANTRACHINONICI: : Plants that contain ANTHACHINONIC GLYCOSIDES, among which the best known are CASCAROSIDES and FRANGULOSIDES. These, thanks to the intestinal bacterial flora action, free the active part of the molecule. They stimulate PERISTALS, increasing the intestinal musculature reactivity and natural contraction, which determines the transit and the stimulus to defecation. They also promote accumulation of water and electrolytes. WARNING: Avoid the use of these plants during pregnancy, lactation and in case of diseases such as diverticulosis, intestinal blockage or hemorrhoids.
CHAMOMILLE: Although known as a mild sedative, this plant actually has a strong anti-inflammatory activity on mucous membranes, given by the action of APIGENINE, a flavonoid. It completes its action thanks to two important properties: it is emollient, so it gives relief in case of irritation of the mucosa; it is spasmolytic, that is, it acts as a sedative of the vegetative nervous system, so it stops the contractions and pains of the stomach and intestine.
FENNEL: Allied in all digestive tubes, fennel is a plant with CARMINATIVE power, that is, it removes gas from the stomach and intestines and soothes pain (colic). Helps in case of swelling, belching, flatulence, digestive insufficiency and irritable bowel therapy. It inhibits the fermentation processes in the large intestine and has antispastic capacity on the smooth muscles. Studies show that it has similar efficacy to metoclopramide (Principles pharmacognosy and phytotherapy, M. Tognolini and M. Chiavarini, 2007).
SENNA with 6-8% SENNOSIDES: SENNOSIDES (A and B), molecules responsible for plant activity, are ANTHACHONE GLYCOSIDES and are used for chronic and occasional constipation.
STAR ANISE: It contains an essential oil made up of 80% by ANETHOLE. It has eupeptic (stimulates appetite) and stomachic action: it helps in difficult digestion, stimulating gastric secretions, peristalsis.
