DulcoEase Information

  • What is DulcoEase?

    DulcoEase contains the ingredient docusate sodium, which is a type of laxative known as a stool softener. It is an effective product for treating constipation by drawing water into your stool making them softer and easier to pass.

    Each box of DulcoEase contains 30 soft gel capsules which when taken three times a day offer noticeable relief within one to two days.

    What is DulcoEase used for?

    DulcoEase capsules are stool-softening laxatives that draw water into your stool to make hard, dry stool easier to pass and to make opening your bowels less painful.

    These capsules are effective in easing discomfort caused by:

    • Constipation
    • Piles or haemorrhoids
    • Anal fissures

    Constipation is a fairly common condition and can affect people of all ages. Most people find that they are able to treat constipation at home by making small changes to their diet, drinking more fluids and getting more exercise.

    DulcoEase is however a great product for those times when you need a little bit more help to get things moving again.

    How does DulcoEase work?

    The active ingredient Docusate helps to soften hard, dry stools by increasing the moisture content inside the stool. These larger, softer stools are then easier to pass.

    Docusate also helps to get your bowels moving again by stimulating the muscles that line your gut, helping them to move stool along.
