We all experience constipation at some time during our life. Constipation is not something to be worried about unless you have chronic constipation or an ongoing bowel problem like lazy bowel syndrome (LBS). Being constipated is not pleasant and causes bloating and that uncomfortable feeling.
Our Herbal Constipation Tea Blend is a short term answer to helping relieve constipation. This blend of herbs will gently support your body in breaking down and removing waste matter held in the colon. If you have ongoing issues, please get in touch with us. Laxatives are not the answer to a long term lazy bowel, but there are other solutions.
