The product relieves constipation gently without the use of any stimulants. Stool softeners provide temporary, yet instant relief from constipation by making the waste softer and easier to pass.
How does it work? The softgels include Docusate Sodium (100mg) as the active ingredient. It is a stool softener laxative (also known as an “Osmotic” laxative) that helps stool absorb more water than usual from the intestine, making it softer, and therefore, easier to pass.
What should I know about it? Always take this medicine with a glass of water. Furthermore, make sure that you keep yourself hydrated afterward (since the medicine promotes the absorption of water). Finally, since the softgels resemble orange candy, keep them out of the reach of children.

Best for: This product is best for people who can’t put too much strain on their muscles while passing stool (such as old people, patients of hemorrhoids, etc.). Furthermore, since there are no stimulants, stool softeners are usually safe for breastfeeding mothers and pregnant women. Ask your health care provider for medical advice.
