    What will Smooth Move® do for me? Smooth Move provides gentle, overnight relief from occasional constipation. Senna leaf promotes bowel movement by direct action on the intestine.* How do I know it works? A single serving provides an effective dose of sennosides from senna leaf, which have proven stimulant laxative action and are generally recognized as safe and effective by the U.S. FDA. We include additional digestive support with fennel, orange peel, cinnamon, coriander and ginger to ease discomfort and reduce cramping. When should I use it? Drink one cup before bedtime. Repeat the next day if needed. Smooth Move will generally produce bowel movements in 8 to 12 hours. How does it taste? It's sweet and slightly bitter, with citrus-orange and spicy notes...best tasting laxative you'll ever drink!

Health Notes

Probiotics Get You Moving

Probiotics Get You Moving
Probiotics Get You Moving: Main Image
If being regular just isn't your thing, adding some "good bugs" to your gut could do the trick
If being regular just isn't your thing, adding some "good bugs" to your gut could do the trick. A study in the Nutrition Journal found that seniors suffering from constipation got some relief by supplementing with probiotics. These friendly bugs also helped shift the balance to a healthier intestinal environment, a factor that might help prevent colon cancer.

Bug your digestive tract

We've probably all experienced it at some point in our lives: that awful feeling of needing to have a bowel movement, but being too blocked. The problem usually becomes more frequent with age, and more than 80% of people living in nursing homes suffer from chronic constipation.

Probiotic supplements containing one or more strains of beneficial bacteria help maintain the normal balance of bacteria in the intestines by reducing the number of harmful bacteria and by modulating inflammatory and immune responses. They are frequently used to help prevent and treat different types of diarrhea (from antibiotics and intestinal infections), and they may help control Crohn's disease, as well as boost overall immunity and help prevent colon cancer.

The new study investigated the use of a probiotic combination of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Pediococcus pentosaceus, and Bifidobacterium longum in 19 nursing home residents with chronic constipation. The people were instructed to take the supplement (containing 300 billion colony-forming units) two times per day for two weeks.

Before and after the study, the people filled out questionnaires indicating how often they had bowel movements and the amount of stool that they passed. Stool samples were tested before and after the study for the presence of probiotic bacteria and for levels of harmful enzymes, and probiotic levels were found to increase significantly after treatment. People reported improvements in the frequency of bowel movements and the amount of stool passed.

Of the four harmful enzymes tested, the levels of two decreased significantly over the study period. "Probiotics may be beneficial in preventing colon cancer because of their inhibitory effects on harmful enzymes in the intestines," the authors commented. No side effects were reported during the study.

Get cultured

Probiotic supplements come in many different forms, though not all are equally potent, so you should talk to your doctor or retailer about what brands may be the best for you. An easy, cost-effective way to boost your intestinal flora is by eating unsweetened yogurt or kefir. Look for products with a mix of several probiotic strains, and skip the ones with extra ingredients. All you need is milk and culture-the bugs themselves.

        Comments about Traditional Medicinals® Smooth Move®:

        First off, to the person who said they had no clue it was going to be licorice. Did you even read the ingredients? It says licorice root at the top of the ingredients.

        Anyway, I have all sorts of digestive issues and this is by far the best product that has helped me in over 3 years. Does exactly what it says. Tea is good to drink. I let mine cool off a bit before drinking. No cramping. Not running to the bathroom. I love this and cant wait to buy some more.

          This tea has saved me!!! I am 43 years old and have NEVER been regular. I am very active and drink lots of water and am Vegitarian. I have always had to take some sort of fiber and it would NEVER work! I heard about this and am NEVER without it! It taste GREAT. You have to let it seep for at least five min. in boiling hot water for the full flavor. It tase so much better than chamomile. It taste so good that I can't believe its a laxative. As soon as I get up in the morning I GO! You will not be dissappointed!!!

              This tea works great and there is minimal cramping. Unlike the overnight pills that say "produce results in 6-12 hours" and then don't, this tea is a sure thing. If you can get past the licorice-like taste it's worth it.
