About GUDLAX NF GRANULES 90GM

GUDLAX NF GRANULES 90GM belongs to the group of medicines called laxatives used to treat constipation. Constipation refers to infrequent bowel movements in which the stools are often dry, painful, and hard to pass.

GUDLAX NF GRANULES 90GM is a combination of two drugs; Ispaghula husk and Lactitol. Ispaghula husk is a bulk-forming laxative that works by increasing the amount of water in the stool, making the stool softer and easier to pass. It can absorb 14 times more water than its weight. Therefore, drink plenty of water while taking Ispaghula. On the other hand, Lactitol is a disaccharide sugar. It works by breaking down into low-molecular-weight organic acids in the colon, which increases the osmotic pressure. This causes an increase in water content in stools, and stool volume, thereby makes the stool softer and easier to pass and provides relief from constipation.
