Herbal Information

Senna Seed:

  • Traditionally people in northern Africa and southwestern Asia have used senna as a laxative for centuries. It was considered a "cleansing" herb because of its cathartic (purging - cleansing) effect.
  • Senna is an FDA-approved over-the-counter (OTC) laxative. A prescription is not required to purchase senna. It is used to treat constipation and also to clear the bowel before diagnostic tests such as colonoscopy.
  • Senna contains many chemicals called sennosides. Sennosides affect the lining of the bowel, which causes a laxative effect.
  • In a report titled; Is Senna Laxative Use Associated to Cathartic Colon, Genotoxicity, or Carcinogenicity?  Published online 2009 Sep 10. doi: 10.1155/2009/287247 in The Journal of Toxicology it states: 'Due to their natural origin, apparent low oral toxicity, effectiveness, and accessibility without a medical prescription, the [sennoside] laxatives are a popular remedy for constipation.'

Cascara Sagrada:

  • The literal Spanish translation of Cascara Segrada is Sacred Bark.
    • This is the name given to the plant by the Spanish Priests.
      • There are two possible reasons for the name.
      • One is that the bark was dried and used as a laxative or purgative by the priests.
      • The other is that the wood closely resembles the wood used to build the ark of the covenant.
  • Cascara Sagrada has active componants called anthraquinones. These are thought to be the reason that Cascara is an effective laxative. They stimulate the peristoltic muscles and thereby assist in the elimination of fecal matter from the colon.
  • Constipation relief is cascara sagrada’s best known possible benefit. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
  • Cascara is considered a botanical stimulant laxative and as such it works by causing increased peristalsis (muscle contractions) in the intestines, which helps to move stool through the bowels to produce a bowel movement. 
  • Cascara bark also contains resins, tannins and lipids
    • As a side note; Cascara Sagrada was at one time listed and approved as an OTC Drug for constipation by the FDA. The FDA approval was removed as there is evidence that extended use of concentrated (drug form) Cascara Sagrada may cause liver damage. The drug companies were offered the opportunity to disprove this theory but did not view the costs of the studies to be worth the effort. Today Cascara Sagrada can only be bought as a health supplement and the question about liver damage still remains.

Aloe Vera:

  • Aloe vera has been known for its healing properties for at least 6,000 years. In the early days, the plant was known for being a “plant of immortality” and was presented to Egyptian pharaohs as a funeral gift.
  • Over time, groups from many geographical areas have used aloe vera, including Indians, Chinese, Mexicans, and North Americans.
  • There are two medicinally useful parts of the aloe vera plant.
    • First, the leaves are filled with a clear gel. This gel is extracted from the plant and usually used on the skin to treat burns and various skin conditions. The gel can also be found in liquid or capsule form and taken orally.
    • The second substance the plant produces is called aloe latex. This is the yellow pulp that’s found just under the outer part of the plant leaf. Aloe latex has been shown to have laxative properties, and it’s usually taken orally to treat constipation.
  • Aloe latex contains aloin, which is an anthraquinone that gives aloe vera its laxative properties and may help treat constipation. (NIH Report Link)
  • The healing properties and the laxative properties of Aloe Vera are both vital in the process of a healthy colon cleanse.

Healthy bowels and healthy colons are the key to better health and well being!

Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., Ph. D., Nutritionalist once wrote; In the 50 years I’ve spent helping people to overcome illness, disability and disease, it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s problems. In treating over 300,000 patients, it is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for before any healing can take place. There are many studies and statements concerning the role of the bowel or colon in our overall health and in the metabolism of the food consumed from day to day. In order to understand what makes Dr. Bernard’s statement so correct, it is important to understand what the colon is and what functions it performs.

The colon is an important part of the digestive tract. In adult humans, the colon is about twenty five feet long and connects the small intestine to the rectum. The major function of the colon is to extract water, nutrients and salts/ minerals from the partially digested food that enters from the small intestine. Approximately 2 pints of partially digested liquid matter enters the colon each day and about 1/3 of a pint of a solid stool leaves the colon each day. The difference in the volume is due to the colon’s absorption of useful and/ or valuable portions of the partially digested food such as water nutrients and minerals. This is to say that the lion’s share of everything that enters the colon is extracted from the partially digested food and introduced into the body through the colon.
Colon motility (the contraction of the muscles surrounding the colon [the peristaltic muscles] and the movement of its contents) is controlled by nerves, hormones and impulses in the colon. These rhythmic contractions slowly move the contents inside the colon toward the rectum. During this passage, the water and nutrients are absorbed into the body and what is left over is fecal matter or the stool that is to be eliminated through the rectum. A few times each day, the contractions push the stool down to the end of the colon resulting in a bowel movement. A normal bowel movement is firm but not hard, contains no blood and is completely passed without cramps or pain. If the peristaltic muscles do not contract the right way then the contents inside the colon do not move correctly, they move too quickly or too slowly. This coupled with the types of food recently consumed can create overly watery or very hard stools. As a result abdominal pain, cramps, constipation, diarrhea and a sense of incomplete stool movement can occur.

What we eat is important to colon health!

There are other issues that need addressing as we cleanse our colons. It is important to consume water, not soda pop or other sugary liquids. With that being said we should also take a close look at our diet. Eating fatty fast foods accompanied with large amounts of breads and pasta’s will not help when trying to maintain a healthy digestive system. This is generally what creates the problem in the first place. Lastly it is important to know that when we cleanse our colon we will peel away layers of fecal matter and expose some potentially raw spots on our colon wall. This creates a need for healing agents like aloe and other herbs that promote rapid healing.
We can all take advantage of various natural methods to cleanse our colon. This in turn will help to rid us of illness causing toxins that build up in the colon, hamper our immune system and rob us of valuable energy. In this article I think that you need to know the benefits of a colon cleanse or; “What’s in it for you?” I think you need to know what the benefits of cleansing and maintaining a healthy colon really are. I have listed a few benefits of colon cleansing below:


1. Cleansing and detoxification:
Most of us know that we are overloading our body with toxins acquired from the environment, from foods that are grown in soil containing contaminants or pollutants and from processed foods containing partially hydrogenates oils and several of the toxic preservatives. Due to the large intake in the American diet, our body is sometimes unable to expel all of these harmful toxins. This leads to an accumulation of toxic waste that all of our internal organs have to deal with, especially the liver, kidney, lungs skin, lymph nodes and colon. Some of the negative effects from this accumulation are lowered immunity, gastro intestinal problems, problems with the skin such as severe acne, psoriasis, some forms of eczema, headaches, migraines, sluggishness and irregular bowel movements or constipation. Therefore it is necessary to perform internal cleansing, especially the colon so that our elimination and filtration systems run at peak performance. This is the only way we can defend ourselves against the onslaught of attacks that we have to endure during our lives.

2. Freedom from digestive tract issues:
The most common and easily identifiable symptoms of an unhealthy colon are constipation and irregular bowel movements. Stomach pains heartburn, acidity, gastritis, flatulence and bloating are also major symptoms that point toward an unhealthy and clogged colon. When you cleanse your colon using natural methods all of the waste and toxins being stored in the colon are flushed out. Your digestive system is the benefactor. It can resume its normal functioning, thus making you healthier and free from some of those digestive issues I mentioned above. This by itself is a worthwhile benefit, but it is just the beginning. This is the catalyst for some more and even more important benefits.
 
3. Stronger, more effective immune system:
In review I have established that a toxic colon will facilitate the absorption of those toxins back into our blood stream and those toxins will promote disease or at the very least place extra burden on your immune system. Your immune system already fought them once and is busy fighting the newly introduced diseases and toxins that we encounter on a daily basis. When your immune system has to deal with toxins that come from exterior sources and then get attacked from interior sources too it can become over burdened and thereby weakened. It is in this weak state that our bodies contract illness and disease. A clean, properly functioning colon will help to eliminate that second threat and alleviate your immune system so that it can function more efficiently.

4. Greater energy and vitality:
As you keep stuffing your body with toxins contained in processed and overcooked foods, sugary drinks, excessive alcohol, caffeine and nicotine as well as drugs and medications for all kinds of ailments, the organs in your body, especially your digestive tract, liver, kidneys and colon start requiring more and more resources (energy)  to perform their tasks. That is to eliminate the poisons, toxins, bacteria, harmful germs and virus’ from your system. When your internal organs become plugged up and bogged down your body will devote more and more of that valuable energy to defending itself. As a result, you will start to feel tired and sluggish. You will have been seemingly shortchanged on energy, you will have a lack of concentration and your jobs and your relationships will suffer. All of this could even lead to mild bouts of depression. Cleansing is a defense against this. When you cleanse your colon and other internal organs you will feel a considerable increase in your energy levels because instead of fighting toxins you will be receiving minerals and nutrients that help to provide the very energy that toxins rob you of.
There really are a great number of benefits that come with a clean, clear and properly functioning colon. I have personally experienced the difference and I am telling you that there is a noticeable difference. I would urge you to try a good colon cleanse, hopefully ours. Our colon cleansing products like SuperLax and Herbal Colon Cleaanser & Tonic have been time tested with thousands of positive results. Our Herbal Colon Cleanse and Tonic in combination with our all natural SuperLax are the one – two punch that you need to start toward that most important colon cleanse. SuperLax and Herbal Colon Cleanse & Tonic are our best selling products. They have a history that started well before any colon cleanse craze started. I am confident that you will love the results and be back for more as you feel that you need them.

Health Information

What exactly is the bowel?
  • The bowel also known as the colon is a part of the digestive system. More specifically the colon is part of the large intestine. The large intestine is the final part of the digestive system. We all have an idea of what happens in the digestive system. The bites of food that we consume orally starts by being chewed and swallowed. After that the upper GI - the stomach gives the food an acid wash to break it down. Once it's broken down the colon - large intestine - bowel starts to do the finish work. Good bacteria and digestive enzymes reduce the food to a molecular level and seperate the nutrition from the waste. Once the nutrition is seperated it is absorbed into the blood stream to deliver energy and vitality to the whole body.
What does the bowel do?
  • Its function is to reabsorb fluids and process waste products from the body and prepare for its elimination. The colon consists of four parts: descending colon, ascending colon, transverse colon, and sigmoid colon.
Why is it important to have regular bowel movements?
  • A healthy bowel movement is:
    • A healthy bowel movement is defined as the elimination of feces from the body. The feces should have a consistancy that allows elimination without strain and should also be solid not liquid. If the feces is too hard it can require strain to push it out. This condition is often referred to as constipation. Sometimes constipation can cause a person to retain rather than eliminate the feces from the body. Constipation has other issues that come with it that will be discussed later. Feces that is eliminated in the form of liquid is called diarrhea. Often times diarrhea is the result of consuming food that might be tainted and doesn't agree with your constitution (digestion system). When tainted food is eated the body liquifies it for immeadiate elimination.
  • The importance of REGULAR BOWEL MOVEMENTS. 
    • The scientists and doctors who study the feces in human bowel movements have found that it's the byproduct of a diverse community of bacteria in your gut that impacts your health in all sorts of ways. Paying closer attention to your stool can tell you about the condition of these vital bacteria — and your overall health.
    • There are also other things that are being eliminiate. The feces or stool consists of waste products that are being eliminated from the body. It may include undigested food particles, bacteria, salts, sulphers and other substances. All of the toxins preservatives and other undigestable matter in the food that we eat are also eliminated through as a part of the fecal matter. If a person thinks about it the purpose of elimination should be obvious. Anything that shouldn't be in the body or that might cause harm to the body needs to be eliminated. Thus the importance of a regular, healthy bowel movement is paramount to a person's overall health.
What are the most common bowel issues?
  • Constipation: con·sti·pa·tion (k?Ån'st?Ö-p?ü'sh?Ön) n.
    • Difficult, incomplete, or infrequent evacuation of dry hardened feces from the bowels.
    • Obstruction; stultification.
  • Diarrhea: di·ar·rhe·a (d?½?Ö?êr?ô?Ö) n.
    • A condition in which feces are discharged from the bowels frequently and in a liquid form. 
What causes constipation?
  • Being constipated means your bowel movements are tough or happen less often than normal. Almost everyone goes through it at some point.
  • Constipation usually occurs when stools remain in the colon (large intestine) for too long, and the colon absorbs too much water from the stools, causing them to become hard and dry.
    • The movement of the hard dry stool through the bowel requires serious effort. The stool causing the blockage can also be very uncomfortable.
  • What Are the Symptoms?
    • Few bowel movements
    • Trouble having a bowel movement (straining to go)
    • Hard or small stools
    • A sense that everything didn’t come out
    • Belly bloating
    • You also may feel like you need help to empty your bowels, such as pressing on or massaging your belly.
What are some easy natural ways to get relief from constipation?
  • Drink two to four extra glasses of water a day, unless your doctor told you to limit fluids for another reason.
    • The extra liquid will possibly rehydrate the fecal matter and allow it to finish moving through the bowel.
  • Add fruits and vegetables to your diet.
    • Fruits and vegetables are an excellant source of fiber. Fiber assists with healthy bowel movements.
  • Eat prunes and bran cereal.
    • Prunes are dried plums which are considered to be a super fruit. Prune are considered to be very good for your overall health because of the antioxidants and because of the laxative effects they have on the digestive tract. Prunes are effective laxatives because of their high sorbitol content.
  • Exercise most days of the week.
    • When you move your body, the muscles in your intestines are more active, too.
  • Don’t ignore the urge to poop. (ENOUGH SAID!!!)

What is a laxative?
  • Laxative: (laksədiv) n.
    • A food or drug that stimulates evacuation of the bowels.
  • adj: Stimulating evacuation of the bowels.
    • Causing looseness or relaxation, especially of the bowels.
  • History: [Middle English, from Old French laxatif, from Medieval Latin lax?üt?½vus, preventing constipation, from Late Latin, assuaging, from Latin lax?ütus, past participle of lax?üre, to relax, from laxus, loose.]
It is very obvious that by definition there is a very specific action that is required before a food or drug can be considered to be a laxative. There are several different kinds of laxatives on the market today. Some of them are chemically based, such as drugs, both over the counter (OTC) and prescription and others are in food groups such as dried fruits or herbs. 
Laxatives can also be grouped by mechanism of action.
  • Saline cathartics, include dibasic sodium phosphate, magnesium citrate, magnesium hydroxide, magnesium sulfate, sodium biphosphate, and others. They act by attracting and holding water in the intestinal lumen, and may produce a watery stool. Magnesium sulfate is the most potent in this group. The
  • Hyperosmotic laxatives are either glycerin. They both act by holding water within the intestine. Glycerin may also increase peristaltic action of the intestine.
  • A Docusate, is the only real stool softener. It holds water in the fecal mass, creating a larger, softer stool. The issue here is that docusates have no effect on constipation since it must be present in the digestive tract before the fecal mass forms to have any effect. It may however, be useful for prevention of recurrent constipation or for those who are about to take a constipating drug, such as narcotic analgesics.
  • A Stimulant, laxative increases the peristaltic movement of the intestine. Some examples are Cascara Sagrada and Bisadocyl. Castor oil also works in a similar fashion. Peristaltic movement is the rhythmic contraction of the peristaltic muscles which surround the intestine. The rhythmic contractions move the food through the digestive tract, through the colon and out of the bowel.
  • Bulk producing laxatives or fiber increase the volume of the stool, and will both soften the stool and increase motility. Psyllium and methylcellulose are examples of this type. The overall effect is similar to that of eating high fiber foods, this class and the stimulant class,(in moderation) of laxatives are the most suitable for regular use.

Ingredients

  • Cascara Sagrada (bark), Psyllium (seeds), Senna (herb), Turkey Rhubarb (root), Aloe Vera (leaf), Barberry (root), Slippery Elm (bark)

Instructions

  • Take 1 capsule the first night, then 2 the second night and continue to increase but do not excede 4 capsules per night. The goal is to have 1 or 2 comfortable bowel movements a day. One capsule may be all you need to get the desired results. Some people need 3 or 4 per night. We recommend you increase by one capsule each night and find out what works best for you.
  • Your body makeup and your eating habits are very individual. That's why the dosage from person to person will be slightly different.

Started Last Year, WON"T QUIT!

I purchased these last year and took one Super Lax in the A.M. and one Cleanse & Tonic in the P.M. and it went right to work on me and after a few weeks I woke up every morning feeling as if my big belly was totally flat as if my breathing (I have COPD) was easier and stronger and better from head toes. I stay on a budget as best as I can, but I have been feeling as if I got my old stomach back again and lost that good mood and energy I woke up with shortly after this regimen. It is worth every cent to me and I am not letting that happen again! I have come to trust Grandma's Herbs. Thank you, Grandma's Herbs!
