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.

  • does the job perfectly!...


    does what it says - 2-3 cups a day is all one needs to get the ' flow' going - will certainly stick with this - best method I have tried to stay regular!..great product! very happy with it.



  • It works for constipation


    I take one teabag before bed and it works the following morning. I like the taste, I find it quite pleasant. I would take as required, maybe once or twice a week.



  • Always on hand


    If you don't have regular bowel movement then I highly recommend this tea. Take with caution though, you don't want a really sore gut and running to the loo all day. Usually I just have a tea before bed and in the morning the action happens. This time I was really backed up, feeling crook with a bloated tummy, I hadn't been to the loo for 2 weeks then I remembered this tea and this morning HOOORAY, I had 2 teas last night. I know when its working because I have a slight tummy cramp followed by a rumbling sound

    Happy again
