Additional Information

Castogel 1 g – Soft-Gelatin Capsules


Each soft-gelatin capsule contains :

  • Pure castor oil: 1000 mg.
  • Excipients: S.Q. for one soft-gelatin capsule.


Castor oil is a well known laxative used for acute constipation as well as control of defecation.

Dosage & Administration

For occasional constipation:

Take (5 g- 8 g) as a single dose at bedtime, or (3 g) in the evening at bedtime for 2- 3 days (don’t use more than one week).

It is advised to change the laxative (e.g. salt laxatives), as continuous consumption of purgatives may lead to habituation, decreasing in the bowel movements and increasing sluggishness of the bowel.

In addition prolonged use of castor oil may cause deficiency of lipid-soluble vitamins (i.e. vitamins A & D) and particularly loss of potassium.

Change of life-style and dietary habits (physical exercises, consumption of food rich in fibers) may increase efficacy of the product.
