About Normacol Plus Sachets
Normacol sachets contain a natural herbal mix, designed to relieve constipation. Normacol Plus granules contain two active ingredients - both Stericulia and frangula bark are natural laxatives, designed to stimulate the bowel and allow for the formation of a softer stool.
Some patients may find that Normacol Plus Sachets isn’t as effective at treating their symptoms. Here at Simple Online Pharmacy, we have a number of alternatives available, including;
Constipation can be a difficult condition to deal with. Try following these simple tips to help treat and prevent constipation;
Stay hydrated - drink plenty of water, especially during hot or dry weather. Your body draws water from your stool, which can lead to constipation if there is not enough water left over to keep the stool lubricated.
Try a high fibre diet - many greasy or stodgy foods are seriously lacking in natural fibre, and can cause constipation. Fruits, vegetables and cereals can all add natural dietary fibre, which can allow easier passing of stool.
Try exercise - moving around changes your blood pressure and blood flow. While you are sitting down, less blood is flowing to your intestines, which can lead to your bowel slowing down its processes. Standing and moving around after long periods sitting down, or even light exercise, can both help move things along.
Check your medications - a large number of medications, such as opiates and antidepressants, can cause reactions in the nerves of the gut, causing constipation. Double check your medication’s Patient Information Leaflet (check medicines.org if you cannot find it) to see if you are experiencing side effects.

How does Normacol work?
Normacol contains a mixture of natural, herbal ingredients. Stericula is an extract from the karaya tree, a vegetable gum which allows for the formation of a soft, bulky stool, and provides a mild laxative effect, encouraging the intestine to begin moving again and absorbing less water.
Frangula bark is taken from the alder buckthorn plant, and has similar properties to Stericula. The combination of the two provides gentle, predictable relief from constipation.
