MENTHOLAX is a natural supplement that combines the laxative properties of senna extract with the antiflatulent and antispastic properties of peppermint oil. MENTHOLAX comes in the form of enterosoluble soft capsules that do not irritate the stomach and open directly at the intestinal level, where it exerts the effect of stimulating the transit, at the same time favoring the elimination of the excess gas and the improvement of the intestinal spasms. The effect usually occurs within 6-12 hours after administration. Therefore it is recommended to use MENTHOLAX capsules during the evening for the effect to appear in the morning.
