Bombastus Glaubers Salt 100 g
Bombastus Glauber's Salt is a saline laxative for short-term use in the event of constipation and for emptying the bowel.
The active ingredient is hardly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract into the intestinal cells and draws water into the intestine. The intestinal contents are softened and increase in volume. The enlarged intestinal content causes a stretching stimulus on the intestinal wall and thus triggers the reflex to defecate.
What adverse effects may occur?
When used as intended, no side effects are currently described for the drug.
Caution: With chronic use, an increase in sodium can lead to edema, high blood pressure, for example, and loss of water and potassium to muscle weakness or heart disorders, for example.
