Features 1

Magnesium hydroxide laxative that softens stools to prevent straining


Absorbs water to soften stools

Laxatives that use magnesium hydroxide, which are also called saline laxatives, act on stool rather than the intestines. They do not stimulate the intestines, but rather collect water and soften stools, which promotes passage without straining.

Magnesium hydroxide laxative that softens stools to prevent straining

Features 2

Non-stimulant and unlikely to become habit-forming


Acts on stool, not the intestines

There are two major types of laxatives: stimulant laxatives, which energize intestinal movement by stimulating the mucous membranes of the intestines, and non-stimulant laxatives, which soften stools by incorporating water into them. BORRAGINOL® Smooth magnesium hydroxide is a non-stimulant laxative.
Because it does not directly stimulate the intestines, it is safe and not habit-forming, even if taken repeatedly.


Features 3

Can fine-tune the dosage according to symptoms and adjust stools
to a good consistency


Can adjust dosage while monitoring bowel movement
conditions to avoid loose stools and diarrhea

It is intended not only to relieve constipation, but also to adjust stool to a good consistency and promote its passage in a controlled manner.
You can fine-tune the dosage of BORRAGINOL® Smooth magnesium hydroxide according to your constipation symptoms.
It is a laxative appropriate for a wide range of ages, from children at least 5 years old to seniors.
