Introduction - An herbal extract predicted to reduce constipation and to regularize the intestine is tested. Materials and methods - 55 patients with a severe constipation disease from homes for the aged were divided into two groups. In both groups, diet and pharmacologic therapy didn’t change in the two periods except for the supplement intake. The first group had a lower dosage of supplement intake, the second group had a higher dosage. We considered as control the period of time before the supplementary intake. Results and discussion - In both groups, the average number of evacuation per day increased with the intake (p<,05) and the usage of the enemas didn’t change (p>0,05). Obtained results suggest that the lower dosage could be eligible for patients with light and temporary variation of the intestinal functionality while the higher dosage can be considered appropriate for patients with a significant alteration.

Abstract

Introduction - An herbal extract predicted to reduce constipation and to regularize the intestine is tested. Materials and methods - 55 patients with a severe constipation disease from homes for the aged were divided into two groups. In both groups, diet and pharmacologic therapy didn’t change in the two periods except for the supplement intake. The first group had a lower dosage of supplement intake, the second group had a higher dosage. We considered as control the period of time before the supplementary intake. Results and discussion - In both groups, the average number of evacuation per day increased with the intake (p<,05) and the usage of the enemas didn’t change (p>0,05). Obtained results suggest that the lower dosage could be eligible for patients with light and temporary variation of the intestinal functionality while the higher dosage can be considered appropriate for patients with a significant alteration.
