The gastrointestinal tract, also called the digestive tract, alimentary canal, or gut, is the system of organs within multicellular animals that takes in food, digests it to extract energy and nutrients, and expels the remaining waste.

     When your digestive tract isn't working properly, it can throw off your whole day. I oughta know! But "Don't wait to feel great™ - try MiraLAX® when you feel your first signs of constipation."
      As BzzAgent puts it, "nothing works better than MiraLAX laxative to relieve constipation and soften stool with no harsh side effects, so you can get on with your day and back to being you."

 This is an image from the classic 1918 edition of Gray's Anatomy. Henry Gray's Anatomy of the Human Body (or 'Gray's Anatomy' as it has more commonly become known) is an anatomy textbook widely regarded as a classic work on human anatomy. The book was first published under the title Gray's Anatomy: Descriptive and Surgical in Great Britain in 1858, and the following year in the United States.

     (My mom and I discovered the benefits of Miralax firsthand, as you will see in the review below excerpted from the review I put on BzzAgent.)

     How? MiraLAX works differently than other laxatives*. It empowers the water you drink to do more, drawing water into your colon to unblock your system gently and naturally. Because when your laxative works with your body to provide relief, you can get back to being you.
     Below is the review I put on Bzzagent:

  •     Although Miralax has helped me personally, I think the strongest thing to say about it is that it helped my mother post-surgery when nothing else gave her relief from horrible constipation. She had tried so many methods to feel better, to no avail. But then I received my free Miralax as a Bzzagent and sent her some. It helped! Yay!

  •      We both loved that it unblocks our system gently and naturally. Bzzagent explains that Miralax empowers the water you drink to do more, drawing water into your colon to unblock it gently.

  •     Laxatives I have tried in the past (pre-surgery for example) have tasted yucky and definitely weren't gentle! So I've been afraid to take something when feeling constipated. Which of course caused me pain and worse hemorrhoids, since then.

  •      But now that I know I can take something that will help AND be gentle, I will use it. As will my mom. I recommend it!

  •      As BzzAgent puts it,"When you have a headache, you take something right away. When you have heartburn, you don't hesitate to seek relief. So why is it that when you feel constipated, you wait?" 

  • Working naturally is just one of many reasons to consider MiraLAX at your first signs of constipation. Why else should you keep it close?

    • Relieves constipation and softens stool

    • Doesn't cause bloating, cramping, or gas(extremely important for folks like me!) 

    • Doesn't cause sudden urgency, so you're in control (This is my favorite part)

    • The #1 recommended laxative by doctors, pharmacists and gastroenterologists

    • Dissolves easily in water and other liquids, with no taste or grit (so cool that it's tasteless!)

    • Available without a prescription in the laxative aisle of drugstore chains, supermarkets, mass merchandisers and club stores nationwide

    • MiraLAX comes in four sizes to suit your needs: 7, 14 and 30 dose bottles, and pre-measured, single-dose 10-packs (SRP $8.49 - $23.99).
      Use as directed for occasional constipation.
      How MiraLAX® works
      Water is vital to your body for healthy living, and to help your digestive system stay regular. But when stool moves slowly through the colon, too much water may be removed, making stool hard, dry, and difficult to pass. (see the stool illustration above.)

      Unlike some other laxatives*, MiraLAX contains Polyethylene Glycol 3350, which gently replenishes water to your digestive system, to help cause a bowel movement naturally. This water both increases the frequency of bowel movements and softens the stool, making it easier to pass.

      Don't Wait to Feel Great™ 
      By now, you know to take MiraLAX at your first signs of constipation to relieve constipation and soften stool with no harsh side effects - but what are the symptoms of constipation? While they're different for everyone, here's what to look out for:

      • Abdominal discomfort

      • Fatigue

      • Gas

      • Achiness

      • Bloating

      • Irritability

      • Straining

      • Lack of energy

      • *Excluding other Polyethylene Glycol 3350 laxatives
        Generally produces a bowel movement in 1-3 days.
        Use as directed for occasional constipation."
        As a BzzAgent, I received free Miralax to try and coupons I shared as well.
