Ingredients found in Herb Lax

1. Rhubarb Root Powder: 

This herb is important because the A-Factors in it differ from those of Cascara—only some of them reach the large intestines intact, while others are re-absorbed in the small intestine, and later released into the large intestine.  The timing of the absorption of Rhubarb is thus displaced to some degree from other agents in this formulation, thereby promoting longer and smoother activity of the whole.  Especially suited for children—since it is very mild in action.


 2. Blue Malva Flower Powder (Blue Mallow):

A Remedy for Bronchitis and Cough.  Used for stomach inflammation, bladder problems and wounds.  It has been proven for upper respiratory irritation.


3. Culver’s Root Powder: 

An old-time American doctor’s remedy for liver congestion with accompanying constipation.  Thus, it should be considered when compounding a formula for the liver, gallbladder, to treat constipation, colitis, gallstones and hepatitis.  Culver’s Root has been used primarily in the past for treating liver disorders and constipation.


4.  Senna Leaf Powder: 

Senna  contains ingredients that stimulate the colon.  It causes the muscles of the colon—the peristalsis that moves the waste through the body,  to work optimally.

This powder produces very reliable results at moving waste from the cells of the body.  Buckthorn is used by raditional herbalists as a cancer treatment.  It shows some anti-tumour action.  It stimulates the colonic muscles that move waste out of the body.  Many people who do not have good abdominal muscle tone experience problems with constipation because of the lack of peristalsis.

7.  Alfalfa (Leaf Powder): 

This plant is known as the “Great Healer” and :Father of all Foods”.  The health benefits attributed to Alfalfa are broad, with attributes ranging from the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis to the ability to cure stomach disorders; from stimulating the appetite to being an effective curative for diabetes.  The leaves are safe for use with people with all forms of auto-immune disorders, including Lupus.  However, the seeds and sprouts are not healthy for those people—as these parts contain a substance that causes exacerbations. (Shaklee Corporation only uses Alfalfa leaves in their Herb Lax and Alfalfa products—and they are not sprayed with any herbicides, fungicides or pesticides.) The Primary properties of Alfalfa are considered to be the anti-inflammatory, diuretic, nutritive effects, along with stomach tonic, phytoestrogenic and overall tonic.  The plant, depending on where it is grown, contains any minerals available in the soil—very important that it is grown in a mineral-rich region of the world. 

Alfalfa is a strong cell detoxifier, able to cleanse the liver and bloodstream.  It enhances pituitary functions as well as treating high fevers, inflamed prostate, and alleviating allergic reactions related to plants and grasses.  Alfalfa has been shown to inhibit the growth of some viruses.  (Shaklee Corporation makes available the only Alfalfa product we have found that only contains the leaves of the Alfalfa plant—sun-dried—with lives enzymes and that is safe for use in people with Lupus.)
