Lactulose Solution - Constipation, a difficulty in emptying faeces or stools out of the bowel, can affect almost everyone at one time or another. A change of diet, a lack of exercise, ignoring the urge to have a bowel movement, some medications and some diseases can all impact on your risk of constipation. It is important to remember that constipation can become serious if left for too long without treatment.

Lactulose is a synthetic disaccharide, a sugar molecule composed of two smaller sugar molecules bonded together, in this case fructose and galactose. It is not metabolised or absorbed by the body. Rather, the bacteria in the colon or large bowel break the lactulose down into acids. These acids pull water into the colon and soften the stool. Peristalsis, the movement of the food through the intestines, is also promoted through the actions of lactulose. Bowel evacuation becomes much easier as a result.
