Natural constipation remedy
Constipation remedies containing herbal ingredients such as linseed, senna and frangula have been used for decades
Constipation has become an increasingly common problem as our modern-day lifestyle brings on poor eating habits and stress. As one naturopath famously said: “What imports into the body one day should be exported the next”.


What is Linoforce?
Linoforce is a licensed herbal constipation remedy.

Each dose (4.1g) of Linoforce contains:

1.76g of whole Linseed
0.43 – 0.70g of Senna leaf
36 – 58mg of Frangula bark
Each dose of Linoforce corresponds to 20.5mg of hydroxyanthracenederivatives (calculated as sennoside B)
The reason that these little linseeds are so useful for relieving constipation in a product like Linoforce is that it is rich in fibre. Furthermore the outside of the seed is coated with a natural film that absorbs moisture, creating a kind of ‘jelly’ making the coating of the linseeds slippery.
Senna leaves
Senna leaves are another ingredient in Linoforce traditionally used for relieving constipation. The plant can be found throughout the tropics. The leaves, the part of plant used in Linoforce, have played a major role in traditional healthcare and were often prepared as infusions for a number of conditions. Nowadays senna leaves can also be found in herbal teas – used particularly by those trying to lose weight.
Frangula bark
Frangula, or alder buckthorn, grows in wet soil in open woods and hedgerows. Although having a number of traditional medicinal uses, today, it is best known as a natural herbal remedy for constipation.


How to use Linoforce to help relieve constipation?
Take 1 level spoonful (spoon provided) at night along with a glass of water or juice. Take at least 150ml of fluid and in general, make sure you drink plenty of water.

Like all constipation remedies available without prescription, do not use LInoforce for more than 1 week. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor if you have not already done so. Constipation remedies should not be used as an aid to long-term weight loss.
