Cape Aloe is prized for its many health benefits. More specifically, the latex found in Cape Aloe leaf is traditionally used as a bowel stimulant and, as such, has garnered the reputation as a gentle and effective laxative when used for short-term relief of occasional constipation.
This dynamic formula harnesses the laxative properties of Cape Aloe, while also supplying targeted herbs to help soothe and protect the GI tract for a gentle laxative experience.
Cape Aloe Extract has been traditionally used to help simulate movement in the colon for increased bowel movements.
Psyllium Husk, along with Inulin derived from Jerusalem Artichoke are included for additional gastrointestinal support.
Soothing Blend of Traditional Herbs
