Herbalists may recommend a product like Herbal Pumpkin for problems like constipation, colon problems, digestive distress, inflammation and even yeast infection. Pumpkin is a great source of certain vitamins and nourishes the body. Black walnut helps the cleansing effect, while ingredients like mullein, slippery elm and marshmallow not only nourish but lubricate. The lubricating action comes from the high mucilage content in these herbs. Mucilage is a substance that turns into a gel when combined with the water in the body and may help soothe the intestinal tract.
