    MiraLAX® Is Gentle on Your Body

    Not all laxatives work the same way. MiraLAX® provides effective relief from occasional constipation by working naturally with the water in your body to hydrate, soften and ease — unblocking your system. This helps to produce a normal and complete bowel movement without causing harsh side effects such as gas, bloating, cramping or sudden urgency. MiraLAX® is different from other laxatives like some stimulant laxatives, which make you go by forcefully stimulating the nerves in your colon.
