What are laxatives?
A chemical or drug that induces bowel movements and relieves constipation is known as a laxative. The mechanism by which a laxative functions to promote bowel movements is referred to as its laxative action.
Laxatives can work in a number of ways. Some laxatives make the colon more water-filled, which results in softer feces and easier passage. Others work by energizing intestinal muscles to expedite the passage of feces via the digestive system. Some laxatives function by softening the stool to facilitate passing.
