Gel food laxative "Senna + Prunes" - a complex remedy of natural origin, contains extracts of plants of mild laxative and sorbing action to effectively restore the impaired motor-evacuation function of the intestine.
It is recommended for prophylaxis and as part of complex therapy: for constipation (including chronic), as an adjuvant to normalize stool with hemorrhoids, cracks in the anus, proctitis, for emptying the colon before X-ray and other diagnostic studies.
Senna extract has a laxative effect due to the anthraglycosides of the extract (mainly sennosides A and B). In the large intestine, anthraglycosides are converted to anthrone and antranols, which irritate the interoreceptors of the large intestine, thereby increasing intestinal peristalsis. Antron and antranols interfere with the absorption of water and electrolytes and promote the diffusion of water into the intestinal lumen. Due to the osmotic effect, there is an increase and softening of feces, an increase in filling pressure, which contributes to the stimulation of peristalsis.

Pectin, fiber and dietary fiber stimulate intestinal contraction, have a sorbing effect, removing toxins and toxins. The extract has some choleretic effect, has an antimicrobial effect of Salmonella and Escherichia coli, helps to normalize the intestinal microflora.
