Movicol Sachet has a natural mode of action that works gently, in harmony with your body.Movicol brings water to the hard, dry stool, and then acts locally in the colon to relieve constipation. The water retained by Movicol softens the stool and bulks it up slightly.As the stool gently expands, it naturally triggers colonic activity and a bowel movement.Because of the lubricating effect of Movicol and the rehydrated, softened, stool – the bowel movement feels comfortable.
There’s no gain or loss in either water or electrolytes, because when it’s mixed with water, Movicol sachet forms an ‘iso-osmotic’ solution – which is less likely to dehydrate the body. And once it’s worked to bring about a bowel movement, the active molecule, Macrogol 3350, is expelled from the body virtually unabsorbed.
Use under Medical supervision.
