Blackmores Colon Care is a laxative formula with fibre and herbs to assist the functioning of the colon.

Why use

  • Promotes elimination and rids the body of waste
  • Contains herbs traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to relieve constipation

The Blackmores difference

Blackmores Colon Care is a pleasant tasting powder that can be swallowed with water, added to food or made into a tea. The dosage can be easily adjusted according to need.

The herbs used in this formula have a laxative effect.  The herbs senna and buckthorn both contain compounds called anthraquinone glycosides which work by stimulating peristalsis.

Other laxative herbs have high mucilage content, such as the herbs psyllium and agar.  These herbs increase the bulk of the stool, which stimulates evacuation.

I have had trouble sourcing Colon Care - Melbourne, Canberra, Wagga, plus anywhere I am at...but hooray have come across another brand - Blooms Health Products -- Herb-a-lax, works just as well as Colon Care. Good luck!

Yes I've been told that the reason for the delay is that you have been sending it all to China too - just like the baby formula companies! Very disappointed!

This is disgusting. I have used this product for years and now they tell me you are sending it all to China. Your company is a disgrace.

How hard can it be to get this product back on the shelves?

Thanks for telling it will be in before the end of September. I find it hard to believe that every pharmacy in my town (Mackay) has run out. It is the only thing that really works so hope you have made provisions so as not to run out of stock again.
