Ayurveda texts and modern research back the following facts:
- Trivruth (Ipomoea turpethum) is a mild laxative that treats constipation of varied etiologies.
- Chebulic Myrobalan (Haritaki) is revered in Ayurveda for its natural laxative property, which does not interfere with normal intestinal physiology. As a prokinetic agent, the herb stimulates intestinal motility and smooth muscle contraction, causing increased intestinal peristalsis. This action aids digestion and the absorption of food.
