Le paquet de gingembre Senokot Ginger

This product is the best. I get so constipated at times and I wanted a way to relieve it without the uncomfortable pain caused by other laxatives. It literally just feels like a regular bowel movement and my stomach does not get upset from taking the pill. I love it!

Senokot Extra Strength Laxative pack

They work! Having them on hand is an enormous relief. Buying the box of 100 was an impulse, but now I'm glad that I did. The bottle is small and the pills are also small which makes them easy to swallow and great for traveling. Best of all, they get the job done easily and gently.

Le bouteille de sirop Senokot

I suffer from constipation and usually go poop once every few days. I tried this laxative and it definitely worked overnight wonderfully. It has not given me any adverse side effects and is made with natural ingredients. The price is also decent so overall this is a good product I'll continue to occasionally use when I'm really backed up.

Flower
The senna plant has been used throughout history for gently relieving constipation; that’s why SENOKOT® Tablets use natural senna.
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 and are commonly used to treat constipation.
How does senna work?
The senna used in SENOKOT® is extracted from the deseeded and dried pods of the Cassia Acutifolia Delile, otherwise known as Senna alexandrina. To ensure a standardized dose and consistent potency in every tablet, we only use the deseeded pods of the senna plant once they have been 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 to ease constipation. SENOKOT® Tablets use natural senna. SENOKOT®•S also contains a stool softener.
How can a stool softener help?
Stool softeners, like docusate sodium, help to draw water into the intestine, making it easier for hard, dry stools to pass through.
