Agiolax - product packaging


With constipation, bowel movements become less frequent and stools are difficult to pass. Constipation is often due to changes in diet or routine, or a lack of fibre in your diet. 3, 4

Nearly a third of South Africans suffer from constipation, and up to 77 % of people who suffer from constipation need to use laxatives. 5

Women are more likely to suffer from constipation, and the prevalence increases with age. 4

Pregnancy is another common cause of constipation. This may be caused by the pressure of the heavy womb pressing on the intestine and may also be due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. 3

Agiolax® assists in the gentle relief of constipation for a short-term use. 1 Should you suffer from chronic constipation, Agiobulk® is also available.
