Blackmores Peritone is a combination of ingredients traditionally used in Western herbal medicine for the relief of constipation.
- Formulated for effective morning response to 'before bedtime dosage'
The Blackmores difference
Blackmores Peritone contains the laxative herbs cape aloes and cascara.
The active constituents of these herbs are traditionally known to stimulate peristalsis, which is the contraction of the smooth muscle of the bowel.
This action promotes evacuation and thus helps to relieve constipation.
