Senna is a plant that's been grown and harvested as a natural laxative for over 3,500 years. In modern times, the laxative effects of the senna plant have been identified as sennosides.
We harvest the senna plant at maturity and remove the seeds, stems and leaves.
The senna used in Senokot® is the deseeded and dried pods of the Cassia Acutifolia Delile otherwise known as the Alexandrian senna.
To ensure a standardized dose and consistent potency in every tablet, we only use the deseeded pods of the senna plant ground up into a fine standardized powder.
A high-speed computerized tablet press is then used to monitor the weight, ensuring that each Senokot® Tablet is produced according to specifications.
Senokot® Tablets are quality-controlled to confirm potency, moisture levels, tablet hardness and additional chemical/physical characteristics.
Once Senokot® Tablets pass quality assurance, they are packaged and delivered.
