      Bekunis in the evening - relief in the morning
      Constipation is still a taboo topic in our society. And yet many people have this problem and know only too well the feeling that “nothing’s doing down there”. Depending on the individual habits or preferences, there are various possibilities for effectively counteracting constipation. The Bekunis brand offers a comprehensive range of products that supplies the most suitable laxative for each individual requirement. 

      The Bekunis brand has a long tradition. For more than half a century people in more than 45 countries have known and used our preparations. During this time we have constantly invested a lot of time and effort in the development and the ongoing improvement of their products.  Bekunis deserves your trust. Because all the products from our company have one thing in common: an effectiveness against constipation that is as gentle as it is reliable.

      Exercise and diet adjustments do not always do the trick and, in some cases, the specific and controlled administration of laxatives is indicated. Different medications are available for treatment, which can be grouped according to their underlying mode of action:

      • Osmolaxatives
      • Swelling agents and bulkage
      • Lubricants 
      • Anti-absorptive and hydragogous laxatives

      When choosing a laxative it is important to consider:

      Efficacy
      the product should be clinically tested and must deliver reliable consistent results.

      Tolerability
      ideally, laxatives should work with your body to encourage a normal elimination process

      Standardization
      can the dose can be specified individually so you can plan to reduce the dose to suit your requirements.

      Bekunis meets all these needs.   Bekunis Products have for many decades been a popular phytotherapeutic drug of choice for constipation relief in more than 40 countries world wide. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare professional.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Q. What is constipation?
      A. Constipation is one of mankind's most frequent disorders, especially in highly civilized countries, with women and older people the most commonly affected. Medically speaking, constipation is the delayed and too infrequent evacuation of dry and hard stool.  It is either due to some delayed intestinal passage under a normal defecation mechanism and/or a disturbed evacuating reflex.  Constipation may be the result of some organic disease or, as is much more commonly the case, of some functional disorder. A low roughage diet, insufficient intake of fluids, jobs with low levels of activity (sitting work), a lack of physical exercise, excess stress and a hectic lifestyle can all contribute to constipation.

      Q. What can I do about constipation?
      A. For relieving constipation physicians and nutritionists recommend a change in one's living and eating habits.

      • Try to maintain a balanced diet that includes plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables and wholemeal products
      • Drink at least 1 - 2 liters of water a day - 3 if you can
      • Try to establish a pattern of regular exercise
      • Set a toilet time each day and allow your body time to perform its natural functions.

      Q. Will Bekunis harm my intestines?
      A. No. Senna, the active ingredient in Bekunis, is one of mankind's oldest and most frequently used remedies. It works with your body, not against it, to encourage the natural elimination process and bring you smooth, comfortable relief.

      Q. How and where does Bekunis work in my body?
      A. The active ingredient in Bekunis, senna, contains a number of compounds derived from anthracene. They reach their actual site of action, the colon, unchanged and without any losses due to absorption. Bekunis increases the secretion of electrolytes and water into the lumen of the bowels and inhibits the absorption of electrolytes and water from the colon. The increased volume in the intestine results in a gentle pressure in the intestine that stimulates peristalsis (evacuation).

      Q. How long does it take?
      A. Bekunis's gentle laxative effects begin within 8 to 12 hours. Take Bekunis at night and enjoy smooth comfortable relief in the morning

      Q. Is Bekunis well tolerated?
      A. Used for centuries as a natural laxative, senna has proved to be effective and reliable. Patients with extremely sensitive systems may experience abdominal pain and diarrhea. In these cases it is wise to reduce the dosage or discontinue use.

      Q. How much should I take?
      A. As with any laxative, Bekunis should only be taken when needed, for a limited time and only in the recommended doses.

      Q. When shouldn't I take Bekunis?
      A. Laxatives should not be taken by those suffering from ileus or inflammatory gastro-intestinal diseases or from abdominal pain of unknown origin.

      Q. Can I take Bekunis while pregnant?
      A. Constipation is a problem for pregnant women, while toxicological studies have found no adverse effects on unborn babies or breast fed infants, they recommend that whilst pregnant or lactating you do not use any medication until after consultation with your healthcare professional.
