Agiobulk Laxative 250g Granules
What is Agiobulk Laxative Granules?
Agiobulk is a bulk-forming agent of plant origin. The seeds and husks of Plantago ovata are present in granular form and swell when in contact with water. Agiobulk regulates disturbed bowel function in the following way :
- In constipation - the bulk produced by swelling of the granules stimulates the stretch receptors in the intestinal wall. This initiates increased peristalsis. Hard stools are softened due to the higher water content, and the passage of the faeces is facilitated.
- In cases of diarrhoea - the swelling of the granules in the intestine, with the uptake of water, may result in the formation of less watery stools.
