Different name - Same great product* Let's face it; Sometimes we need help with our regularity. Natur-Flo is an all-natural laxative that is gentle, but extremely effective. It is a "must have" supplement for those times that we need a little help. It works by attracting and holding water in the intestinal tract, which softens the stool and allows easy evacuation. Some laxatives become addicting because they work on the basis of irritation, an undesirable way to induce bowel action. Natur-Flo works by softening and bulking up the stool by the addition of water. This can be considered a natural way of assisting nature in this most important function. There is copious evidence of reduction in cancer of the bowel and other areas, reduction of diverticulitis, colitis, hemorrhoids and other lower bowel problems in those individuals who have a bowel movement every day.
Natur-Flo contains the following complimentary natural ingredients:
Senna Leaf: Senna Leaf or Cassia Angustifolia, is an ornamental shrub native to Egypt. Its leaves and pods are collected twice a year, then dried to create medicinal teas, tinctures, and supplements. Senna Leaf acts on the smooth muscles of the colon to instigate bowel movements. t is primarily used as an effective relief from occasional constipation.
Cascara Sagrada: A natural laxative, Cascara Sagrada comes from the reddish-brown bark of the Rhamnuspurshiana tree native to the Pacific Northwest. It was used by various Native American Indian tribes, who also passed their sacred bark on to the Spanish explorers. The most notable constituents in cascara sagrada are hydroxyanthraquinone glycosides called cascarosides. Cascarosides exhibit a cathartic effect that induces the large intestine to increase its muscular contraction (peristalsis), causing a bowel movement. Other important constituents include resins, tannins, and lipids which make up the majority of the bark ingredients.
Ginger: There is a wide range of benefits of ginger such as nausea, digestive problems, circulation and arthritis. Nausea caused during pregnancy or by traveling is one of the benefits of ginger root. Ginger is also known to have the ability to calm an upset stomach and to promote the flow of bile. Stomach cramps can be eased and circulation can also be improved. Ginger supports a healthy cardiovascular system by making platelets less sticky which in turn reduce circulatory problems.
Senna Pod: Senna pod comes from the senna tree (Cassia angustifolia). The sennosides and anthraquinones glycosides in the senna pod help soften the stool and relieve constipation. Senna also is used for people with anal fissures and hemorrhoids, and before operations or examinations where the bowels need voiding.

If you are having issues with constipation and regulatiry, give Natur-Flo a try. Even if you aren't currently, it is a good idea to have some on hand when you need it.
