Lactulose Solution is an osmotic laxative that helps to soften stools by absorbing water, which makes passing stools more comfortable.
Lactulose also changes the acidity of your stools which discourages that growth of bacteria in the bowel, which can also help to treat liver problems such as hepatic encephalopathy.
What causes constipation?
- Not including enough fibre in your diet, e.g. vegetable, cereals, fruits.
- Not drinking enough fluids.
- Not being active enough.
- Mental health, e.g. anxiety, stress, depression.
- Some medications.
Lactulose Solution helps to ease constipation by working as a stool softener which draws water into your bowel, softening hardened stools to make it easier for them to pass through your system.
