Relieves constipation: The natural ingredients in Herbolax soften the stool and enhance intestinal motility, which relieve acute and chronic constipation effectively. Due to its laxative property, the drug assists excretion without upsetting the fluid-electrolyte balance (mineral and water balance) in the body. Herbolax is non-habit forming and does not result in physiological dependence.
Other actions: For effective preradiographic bowel preparation, Herbolax in conjunction with Himalaya’s Gasex, eliminates gas shadows, ensures better radiological interpretation and avoids repeated exposures. The drug is also a carminative that treats indigestion and stimulates the gastrointestinal tract.

Trivruth (Ipomoea turpethum) is a mild laxative that treats constipation of varied etiologies.
Chebulic Myrobalan (Haritaki) is revered in Ayurveda for its natural laxative property, which does not interfere with normal intestinal physiology. As a prokinetic agent, the herb stimulates intestinal motility and smooth muscle contraction, causing increased intestinal peristalsis. This action aids digestion and the absorption of food.
Directions for use: 1-2 tablets twice a day or as directed by physician
Side effects: Herbolax is not known to have any side effects if taken as per the prescribed dosage.
