FloraLax Laxative Powder - 7.1 oz. FloraLax is a unique laxative formula with three natural source of high quality fiber rolled into one: organic flax seeds, organic psyllium husks, and organic oat bran. When ingested with the proper amount of water, psyllium can swell up to 100 times its orginal volume, providing bulk to fecal mass. In this bulk form, psyllium acts as a sponge that absorbes intestinal toxins. It moves quickly through the colon, because it has a lubricant action equal to that of oil, but is not oily. It contains no nutrients. These husks are almost tasteless and they are a good choice for those with an aversion to oily supplements. Defatted flax seeds are used because they swell up with water and form mucilage, which keep fecal matter soft. The seeds are defatted because the active ingredient, lignin, is found in high concentration in the fiber of the seed, and not in the oil of the whole flax seeds. Oat bran offers an additional source of fiber and is extremely easy to digest.Floralax Assists with: Digestion Elimination Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels About Flora At Flora, they have been manufacturing and supplying premium herbal products since 1965, but their roots stretch back to Germany in the early 1900s, where Dr. Otto Greither, grandfather of the current owner Thomas Greither, dedicated his life to the discovery, production and distribution of natural health care products.
