Questions & Answers
1. Is Motion Potion a Laxative?
No it is not. Long term laxative use can slacken the bowel and cause dependency. Motion Potion will in fact do the opposite. It is very gentle and can sometimes take up to 3 or 4 days to see the full results. It should be used to maintain regularity. If you are severely constipated (no bowel movement for 3 or more days) it may be necessary to take herbal laxatives first and then take Motion Potion to maintain regularity.
2. How do I take it?
Stir 1 teaspoon vigorously into 1/2 glass of fruit juice (for flavour) or water and drink immediately as mixture will thicken. Always follow with 1-2 glasses of water.
NOTE: It is important to stay hydrated while taking Motion Potion. Therefore we recommend drinking at least 2L of water each day.
Take at least 10 minutes away from medication.
3. What about taking Motion Potion while I have loose stools?
This is also recommended. Motion Potion will add bulk to the stool and absorb a lot of the water. This will help slow down the transit time and give better consistency to the stool.

Maximum suggested serve is 1tsp 5 times/day – recommended during juice fasts only.
