Components and main activities

Senna leaves and roots of Rhubarb are very rich in anthraquinone glycosides which reach the intestine unchanged where they are metabolized by intestinal bacteria. Metabolic products obtained are poorly absorbed and act by stimulating the motility of the colon and especially inducing the secretion of electrolytes and water into the intestinal lumen preventing their reabsorption. The increase in volume of the intestinal contents promotes the stretching of the walls promoting peristalsis. The laxative effect of anthraquinones like the rhein-anthrone is manifested from 8 to 12 hours after oral administration. Widely used in case of constipation in people who also have hemorrhoids and anal fissures.

The bark of buckthorn contains anthraquinone glycosides that, as we have seen for the plants mentioned above, are metabolized by intestinal bacteria and act mainly by stimulating peristalsis of the colon. The main active principle of buckthorn is given by frangulina, sovereign substance in the treatment of occasional constipation or chronic. Unlike many other natural or artificial laxatives, the bark of buckthorn has the gift of giving tone to the muscle fibers of the intestine, stimulating easy peristalsis. For this reason it does not irritate, nor is it addictive, so even prolonged use turns out to be less harmful than other natural laxatives. Buckthorn is indicated in cases in which the stool must be soft, in all those situations where the natural physiological process of evacuation can be made particularly difficult and painful to swollen and inflamed veins in the anus area: in the presence of fissures, of hemorrhoids and after rectal surgery.

It is extracted from the leaves of the plant, with manual labor, a thick juice, concentrated, the consistency of a gel, which contains many active ingredients from plants with immunostimulant, anti-inflammatory, purifying, nourishing, remineralizing properties. The many virtues seem to be the result of a synergistic action of these compounds, making it in effect, the “plant of immortality” and “Queen of all remedies”. Aloe restores the functionality of the intestine, carrying out a balancing of pH and bacterial flora, useful in cases of constipation and diarrhea. For internal use, mucopolysaccharides are attributable to the protective action of the mucous membranes, because, by adhering to the walls of the digestive tract, these substances form a kind of protective film capable of defending the internal tissues of the stomach from the gastric juices, or by irritants, which would alter the proper functioning of the digestive system. For this reason Aloe juice is indicated in case of gastritis, colitis, irritable bowel, ulcers, and for any mucosal inflammation. The intake of Aloe juice promotes the detoxification of both exogenous toxins coming from the environment, introduced by mouth or respiratory failure, as well as endogenous waste products of metabolism, help the cleansing action of liver.

The flowers and especially the leaves of mallow are rich in mucilage, which give the plant emollient and anti-inflammatory properties for all the soft tissues of the body. These active ingredients act by coating with a layer of sticky mucous that protects from irritants. For this reason, the use of Mallow is indicated for coughs, in the phlegm of the upper airways; to hydrate and torch the intestine, and to adjust functions, thanks to its sweet laxative action, due to the ability of the mucilage to form a sort of gel, which acts mechanically on stool and thus facilitating their elimination. The treatment of constipation with Mallow is non-irritating and non-violent, it is indicated during pregnancy, for children and for the elderly.

The therapeutic properties of cinnamon are many and were already well known in Ancient Egypt and by the Romans. It is a powerful natural antioxidant, stimulates blood circulation and helps to combat cholesterol. It has antibacterial (exploited in ancient Egypt for embalming the dead), antiseptic, stimulant and digestive properties. According to recent studies it appears useful for those who suffer from type 2 diabetes for the presence of a particular polyphenol that has an action similar to that of insulin. Cinnamon stimulates the immune system and appears to be a good natural remedy against colds, flu, diarrhea, flatulence and dyspepsia for its antimicrobial and astringent actions.
