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:
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.
