Nu-Lax Platinum Fruit Laxative Block – Aloe & Flaxseed

Our Platinum formula contains the three original active Nu-Lax ingredients: Senna leaf extract, figs and dates, with the added benefits of aloe and flaxseed.

Flaxseed is a valuable superfood loaded with nutrients crucial for good health. Among its many beneficial properties is that it contains both soluble and insoluble fibre. So flaxseeds not only slow down our digestive rate, but they also increase waste bulk and make stools softer.

Aloe contains compounds known as anthraquinones which increase water content in the intestines, stimulating movement in the digestive tract[1].

Nu-Lax Platinum Formula laxative block also contains the same blend of dried fruits as the original Nu-Lax laxative block such as apricots, peaches, pears, figs and dates for extra gut-friendly goodness and a delicious fruity taste. It also has a fresh lemon flavour.

Good for your gut, good for you.
