Cape aloe, cascara sagrada, and senna are all natural herbs known for their laxative effect on the body. They have been used for centuries to help relieve constipation (irregularity). All three elements contain naturally occurring chemicals called anthraquinone glycosides.
These glycosides work to increase peristalsis (contractions of the intestinal walls). These anthraquinone laxatives are also believed to ease constipation by increasing the amount of water and electrolytes in the intestine.
In addition to the natural laxatives cape aloe, cascara sagrada, and senna, Cape Aloe Lax includes fennel seed and African bird pepper, which help make the process gentler.
