Gentle Herbal Laxative
No matter how hard we try to eat right and be healthy, sometimes it’s just plain hard to “go.” Waking up for an important day or special occasion feeling heavy, bloated and “full of it” is a drag. But there no need to worry or turn directly to harsh chemicals when there’s Senna: a time-tested, gentle herbal laxative that supports regularity and healthy digestive function. Since the ancient Egyptian era, the pods of the senna plant and tea from the leaves have been used as a laxative.1
The active compounds, called sennosides, appear to work by drawing a larger amount of water in the bowel and increasing its movement.2 A double-blind study of 77 senior citizens found that using the active ingredient in Senna had more frequent bowel movements, softer stools and less straining.3 For a gentle and 100% natural supplement to help with occasional irregularity, nothing beats Senna!
Each bottle contains 30 tablets.
How to Use It
As a dietary supplement, take one (1) tablet daily, as needed.
When you take a tablet of Senna you are more likely to have a bowel movement within the next 6 to 12 hours. Some people prefer to supplement Senna over a course of 3 to 4 days for a more complete cleansing and to help support natural evacuation and digestive tract balance.
