Save for the fact the person below is quite right, they are also quite wrong. Laxatives do cause you to lose weight after taking them in excess for a long period of time. At first, laxatives keep the body from absorbing water by coating the GI tract and the stomach. After excessive use, however, laxatives coat these organs enough to keep the body from absorbing fat, but only a little, as food is alrady broken down by the time it gets to one's GI.
if you know you are eating the food with laxatives then my advice is to stop ask your doctor to help you ensure a balanced diet and he will go over the food that contain laxatives and food in witch is safe, your health can be Seville damaged by laxatives and you can have a stroke or heart attack,
No. Laxatives are very dangerous. If a person is constapated, they should do things naturally. This means to eat a lot of food high in fiber / take fiber supplements and to drink plenty of water.
After you eat a heavy meal....
Laxatives are only supposed to be used when you're constipated, They are not to be used as a weight loss tool and can actually cause you permanent damage if used as such.
they might take it before a binge like in the am and then eat and it comes out so yeah
laxative's naturally made for when people can not produce a successful bowel movement. By stimulating the rate of bowel activity, the laxatives prevent the large intestine from absorbing food, where normally, the maximum food gets absorbed. This means that laxatives conduce rapid movement of food from bowel to the exterior, before absorption of food can take place. Regular intake of laxatives affects fat absorption in the body, resulting in diarrhea. The food ingested passes through the body without getting absorbed, thereby preventing any weight gain.
you should take it before food there is a reason for it,. a medical reason its healthy to take it before and not good to take after food,.
It depends on the person, some might not take any laxatives, and some might take way too many.
Do you take evening primrose oil before or after food? I had the same question and found this website http://www.drugs.com/cdi/evening-primrose-oil.html that said yes, take with food Best, punya
of course you can
That's not really possible. Laxatives do damage - even if it is just minor - every time you take them.
take lots of laxatives
If you take too much of them.
take laxatives in small amounts before you eat, and drink a lot of water to flush out your water weight
as long as the laxative does not have a stimulant. You may use colace, senna, etc..
You will deydrate...
i think so!!
Of course it is, if it is ok with your PCP and other physicians, if you follow instructions carefully, and if you do not become dependent on them. Your physicians should know about otc laxatives that you take, and about how you take them (frequency, dose, etc).
Normally, people take laxatives after they eat. Laxatives can be very harsh on the body and dangerous, though, so they should not be taken often or at all.
It is always best to take medicines according to the instructions your physician gives you. However, since Cremaffin Plus is a laxative, it would probably best be taken at night before bed, which would mean after your food for the day has been consumed.
Here are some natural laxatives Pear juice A teaspoon of honey in a glass of warm water. Orange juice and olive oil. Even cranberry and prune juice are very good laxatives and natural colon cleansers.
