Gentle Move works in three different ways to gently and naturally move intestinal contents through the digestive tract.
From Nature’s Sunshine – To hydrate intestinal lumen by attracting and retaining fluid within the colon. This helps soften stool and provides soothing nutrients to the intestinal system.
- Designed to soften the stool and promote bowel regularity.
- Formulated for use by individuals sensitive to stimulant laxatives.
- Supports intestinal and digestive health.
How It Works:
Three basic types of laxatives exist:osmotic, bulk-forming and stimulant. Osmotic laxatives increase the amount of water that stays in the intestinal contents as they pass through the intestines. Bulk-forming laxatives feature fiber supplements that increase the bulk and water contents of the stool and encourage healthy bowel activity. Stimulant laxatives stimulate the muscle contractions along the intestinal tract. Gentle Move combines osmotic and bulk-forming with a mild stimulant action. It features a proprietary blend of magnesium and soothing herbs. Magnesium specifically attracts and retains fluid within the colon, which helps soften stool. Triphala extract is a traditional Ayurvedic combination of dried fruits considered a “health harmonizer.” Traditionally, triphala is used as a gentle laxative that supports digestive and intestinal health.Gentle Move’s herbal blend also contains yellow dock, ginger, marshmallow and slippery elm to aid digestion and provide soothing action of the digestive tract.

Comments from Steven Horne about this excellent product
Cleansing the colon is not accomplished by just using herbal laxatives. Laxatives can be helpful during a cleanse to ensure that waste products move rapidly from the body, but they are not the longterm answer to maintaining colon health.
Gentle Move is a mild alternative to stimulant laxatives. It helps to hydrate the colon and improve bowel tone to promote natural elimination. It can be used to wean someone off stimulant laxatives and restore normal tone to the colon.
The key ingredient in Gentle Move is magnesium hydroxide, a salt of magnesium that attracts water to the bowel. This helps hydrate the stool and make it easier to pass. Gentle Move also contains triphalia-a blend of three fruits that has been used as a gentle laxative, bowel tonic and blood purifier in India for thousands of years-and ginger, yellow dock, marshmallow and slippery elm.
The triphalia blend contains all the flavors (or tastes) used in Ayurvedic medicine, so it is considered a harmonizing or balancing remedy and is safe for long term use. Besides normalizing colon function, it improves liver function, protects the liver against environmental toxins, improves digestion, helps expel mucus from the system and enhances circulation.
Gentle Move provides a mild laxative action while tonifying and improving colon health. It is a great formula to wean people from stimulant laxatives. It is a safe bowel formula for people who suffer from inflammatory bowel disorders. It is also a good formula for long term use in people with chronic constipation problems.
A safe long-term dose of Gentle Move (for maintenance of normal bowel function) is 2 capsules once or twice daily. People who have serious constipation problems will need to start with a higher dose, about 6-9 capsules daily. As bowel function improves, the dose can be reduced.
