How MOVICOL® Works

Unlike some laxatives that work to cause bowel contractions through nerve stimulation,
MOVICOL® 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® 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.
