What is senna?
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.
How does senna work?
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.
The sennosides (or senna glycosides) found within the senna plant stimulate a series of comfortable wave-like contractions called peristalsis to help encourage bowel movements and ease constipation.
