Normacol stimulates the muscular movement of the gut to help move stools through the digestive system. The key ingredients in Normacol are stercrulia and franula. Stercrullia is a finely ground vegetable gum from the Karaya tree. Frangula has a laxative effect that stimulates the intestinal walls causing them to contract with more force. Normacol brings fast relief to constipation.
The active ingredients are 62% Sterculia and 8.0% Frangula Bark
