The different causes of constipation
Nearly a quarter of Canadians are affected by constipation every year. Constipation can occur when the colon absorbs too much water or when its muscle contractions slow down. Many lifestyle factors can contribute to this, including: travel, a lack of fibre in one's diet, certain medications, pregnancy, or stress. Each of these causes can call for a different solution to relieve one's symptoms.

Lax-A-Day: the #1 doctor-recommended PEG 3350*
Clinically proven, Lax-A-Day, the #1 doctor-recommended laxative in its class, provides gentle and effective relief for people suffering from occasional constipation. Available in a convenient packaging of 60 doses/1020g with an easy grip, Lax-A-Day increases the frequency of bowel movements without generating a sudden urgency to go. Sold at a very competitive cost per dose, Lax-A-Day also offers a grit-free, 100% soluble and taste free oral solution that is well tolerated by both men and women.
