Fig and senna syrup contains natural ingredients that have a mild laxative action. Fig and senna syrup eliminates problems caused by hard stool and/or absence of stool. In addition to purgation, Fig and senna syrup stimulates excretion of toxins that cause fatigue and have a bad effect on health in general. Fig and senna syrup is designed for adult persons suffering from prolonged constipation.
The efficiency of Fig and senna syrup is based on interaction of several ingredients:
Fig contains over 50% of invert sugar, complex carbohydrates, pectins, proteins, fats, vitamins (beta-carotene the most), enzymes and a large amount of mineral magnesium to which laxative action is attributed.
Senna (lat. Cassia senna L.) is a shrub-like plant with laxative properties. Senna leaves contain substances (sennosides) that stimulate bowel action. They decrease the absorption of water and electrolytes from the intestines into the blood stream, in the same time helping the inflow of electrolytes and water into the intestines. In this way they increase the stool volume, which stimulates bowel movement and alleviate bowel evacuation.
Fennel fruit, essential oil of peppermint and essential oil of cloves alleviate the cramps in the digestive tract and decrease bowel bloating (fights meteorism).
Use: Adults take 2 dosage spoons in the evening.
Regular bowel evacuation is important for the health in whole. On the contrary, noxious products of digestion accumulate, together with development of different symptoms (malaise, feeling of bloating, poor appetite, fatigue, and headache). When bowel movements become less frequent, and the stool becomes hard, dry and difficult to evacuate, obstipation occurs. Women and older persons are more prone to suffer from obstipation. Possible problems can be:
- insufficient frequency of bowel evacuation – less than three stools a week
- decrease of intestine peristalsis – which leads to straining and stronger pushing
- inappropriate consistency – the stool is too hard
- the stool volume is too small
Here are some pieces of advice for maintenance of regular digestion:
- Start the morning with breakfast in order to wake up the digestion and stimulate the bowel action.
- Introduce enough fibre food in the diet: fruit, vegetables and whole wheat.
- Foods that expand, thus increasing stool volume, are useful.
- Diet should be diversified, with balanced amounts of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
- Drink 1.5 to 2 litres of fluid a day, avoiding carbonated beverages and alcohol.
- Engage in physical activity.
If problems with obstipation persist, it is advisable to take Fig and senna syrup.
Obstipation is a disorder of intestinal motility which can result in the absence of stool and/or failure to empty the bowels.
Our offer includes two products that everyone can choose depending on the type of digestion problems.
Owing to its mild action, Fig and plum syrup is recommended to children, pregnant women, diabetics, older persons, with haemorrhoid problems, in patients with cardiac by-pass and in other cases where a mild stimulation of bowel evacuation is necessary.
Fig and senna syrup has a stronger action, and is thus designed for adult persons suffering from prolonged and severe constipation. Fig acts as a mild laxative owing to the high content of magnesium and carbohydrates. Senna is used as a very powerful purgatory agent, but accompanied by undesirable bowel cramping. The laxative effect of Fig and senna syrup has been retained through interaction of fig and senna, while undesirable bowel irritation and cramping have been avoided.
