Organic senna leaf tea
Today, senna is commonly used as a laxative and is an active ingredient in products like Senokot, Fletcher’s Castoria, and Ex-Lax Gentle Nature. Senna grows naturally in most tropical regions around the world, with both its leaves and seeds possessing medicinal properties. It effectively relieves constipation by stimulating the colon, and accelerating the passage of its contents. This process reduces the time for fluid absorption from the stool, keeping it soft. Many individuals find that preparing senna as a cold tea produces less resin, thereby decreasing the likelihood of abdominal cramps.
