Advantages: Mild yet very effective
Over many years I have suffered from quite bad constipation. I try to eat healthy but do not always manage to succeed and as a result I get bunged up every now and again and it takes a good dose of laxative to shift it. Once I have managed however, I always feel a lot better. The more gentle laxatives have little or no effect on me and I have to take something extra strong. That is when I discovered the delights of Ex Lax Maximum Strength.
I like this because it reminds me of chocolate squares and I rarely associate it with a laxative. Also, if friends or colleagues see me in the office popping it into my mouth, they are often fooled into thinking I am just eating a bit of chocolate and not taking something to help me have a bowel movement. The best time to take these, however, is at night before I go to bed. On the odd occasion I have been tempted to take it whilst at work, I have suffered the consequences (as have my colleagues). If I take it before bed, I usually find I can have a good sized movement the following morning so I can leave for work feeling like my bowel is clean and it makes me feel less sluggish.
I buy a box of this from Boots and it tastes and looks like chocolate squares. I simply take just one tablet before bed for excellent results. So long as you are over nine years of age, then this dosage will suit you just fine. The laxative is made from purified senna extract so it acts naturally on the bowel and doesn't take you by surprise. I pay in the region of £3.18 for a box of 18 laxative squares. I have taken a milder form of Ex Lax before but the maximum strength ones are the best as I think they must contain more purified senna.
What I like about this laxative is that it is gentle on my stomach and although it is mild and works slowly, it is still very effective and good at clearing me out where other laxatives have just failed to do a decent job. This makes the bowels looser rather than runny like water and this makes for a much more pleasant bowel movement. Also, when I have taken this I feel that one bowel movement is enough. With some laxatives I think I can feel the need to continue to defecate throughout the following day. This is not the way Ex Lax works, fortunately, it is milder and gentle but the effects are still good.
Overall, an impressive product and one I recommend.
Summary: Great stuff
