Saline laxatives are used to relieve occasional or chronic constipation. Constipation is one of the most frequently reported Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (FGIDs) in the general population. Constipation affects multiple aspects of a person’s health, including health-related quality of life. Female are at higher risk of constipation due to factors including hormonal imbalance, damage to the innervation of the pelvic floor musculature related to childbirth or gynecological surgery, and genital prolapse.

The global saline laxatives market is expected to grow at significant rate during the forecast year, owing to high demand for and wide availability of over-the-counter laxative products for constipation. Apart from the constipation, saline laxatives can also be used during preparation for examination or surgery for elimination of food or drugs from the body in cases of poisoning or overdose and in supplying a fresh stool sample for diagnosis. Oral magnesium hydroxide (Phillips Milk of Magnesia), magnesium citrate, lactulose (Kristalose), and polyethylene glycol (Miralax) are some of the over the counter saline laxatives available in market. Furthermore, polyethylene glycol (PEG) (Golytely, Nulytely) is available through prescription.
