  • The substance has two mechanisms of action. It binds water locally into the intestine so that the amount of lining increases and the intestine spills out. This promotes intestinal contractions of the intestine and thereby the intestinal drainage. It also works on the bowel function by increasing the bowel movements and by increasing the salt and water content of the intestine.
  • The effect usually occurs within 3-12 hours.
