How Liquid Paraffin + Magnesium Hydroxide (milk Of Magnesia) + Sodium Picosulphate works

Sodium Picosulphate (Picosulfuric acid) falls under the stimulant laxative category. It inhibits the absorption of water and electrolytes and increases peristalsis (the wave-like movement of the intestines) to push the stools forward. Liquid paraffin falls under the lubricant laxative category. It acts as a hydrophobic barrier on the skin's surface and in the gaps between cells. This barrier blocks the movement of water and fats into the faeces. Milk of magnesia falls under the osmotic laxative category. It acts by pulling water into the colon by osmosis, softening the faeces. Together, they make it simpler to pass stools.
