Does SWEEP have a laxative effect?

No. Sweep doesn't aggravate the lining of your bowel causing a sudden evacuation - so it's highly unlikely that you'll need to run to the toilet. The ingredients used in SWEEP are natural and restorative and when taken daily (with increased water) you can expect your bowel function and elimination to improve. SWEEP will not make for a lazy bowel like regular laxatives.


Should I take this before or after my medication?

We advise that you take your daily dose of SWEEP away from other prescription medications (by 1-2 hours). 


I take Blood pressure Medication - is it Safe? 

Liquorice root is used for its tonic effect, flavour and benefits to the bowel. However Liquorice in high doses may affect Blood Pressure so we advise supervision when using SWEEP and to take it away from Blood Pressure Medication (as above). 


Can I take the regular SWEEP if I am Pregnant?

Pau D'arco is a powerful anti-parasitic and anti-microbial BUT it's contraindicated during pregnancy and breastfeeding. We advise against using SWEEP during pregnancy and breastfeeding up to 12 months. 


Can I take the Pregnancy SWEEP if I am no longer Pregnant or Breastfeeding?

Yes you most certainly can.


Is it best to SWEEP before or after food?

SWEEP is best taken 1st thing in the morning or last thing at night shaken in a jar with milk (of choice), coconut water or water. As a maintenance dose adding it to your smoothie is totally okay.
