Nu-Lax Natural Fruit Laxative Block

The original Nu-Lax formula hit the shelves back in 1937. And it’s still the same effective, great tasting product that Aussies have relied on for over 80 years.

Our laxative blocks and bars contain dried fruit and fibre-based products containing figs, dates as well as the stimulant laxative herb Senna to assist in the treatment of constipation.

This signature blend harnesses the goodness of nature for a great tasting, overnight constipation relief.

Figs and dates provide a good dose of natural fibre for a sluggish digestive tract or a diet with inadequate fibre intake. This product also contains apricots, peaches, pears and flax meal for a pleasant taste and additional fibre.

Keep a block in your cupboard for you and your family.
