Senna Info

For many people, bowel problems are part and parcel of everyday life, with irritable bowels being an everyday occurrence. One of the extremes of this phenomenon, constipation, can be a painful and annoying problem when it strikes.

Senna (Senna alexandrina) is a shrubby herb native to Egypt and the Middle East traditionally used to help constipation. When taken as a tea or capsules, the leaves and pods of the herb help create peristalsis in the colon, moving stools along and helping the elimination process. Both the leaves and pods contain components known as sennosides (glycosides specific to the Senna plant), which act on the smooth muscle and give rise to its action.

It may be of use short term for those who find themselves battling constipation, such as those suffering IBS and similar digestive problems, whilst the underlying cause is addressed.

Try great-tasting BioBalance Sennax, which contains psyllium, honey, and mineral-rich dates and prunes as well as senna to help gently get things moving again.

  • Quality is the same at a normal moisturizer

    star

    I'm living in Auckland now. I compared the results using this herbal cream and another natural moisturiser and find they have the same moisturizing effect. In areas where my skin are dry, I expected that they would sooth my skin for a long time but it only lasts for an hour. When I just applied, it left my skin feel quite oily and probably would feel like that for at least another 15 minutes. I found another use of it as a lip balm. It is quite a good natural lip balm and keeps moiture for the lips well.
