Benefits of Senna Leaf 50g

Description

The senna leaf has been used traditionally as a laxative. The name comes from the Arabic word for “thorny bush,” which is “sena.” The ancient Egyptians were only one of many civilizations to benefit from Senna; they utilized it as a cure for constipation. Ancient Greek medicine also employed it for the treatment of skin conditions and snakebites. Senna was utilized to treat stomach and bowel problems in Indian Ayurvedic medicine.

Senna’s anthraquinones are the active molecules that help the body eliminate waste by contracting the intestines. Due to its laxative effects, senna is frequently included in over-the-counter medicines for the treatment of constipation. Senna’s anti-inflammatory, weight loss, and blood sugar-regulating properties have also been investigated.

Senna leaf may also be helpful for treating skin diseases including acne and dermatitis, as well as enhancing liver function.
The laxative effect of senna leaf may be greater than that of senna pods. This is due to the higher concentration of sennosides, the active substances responsible for stimulating intestinal muscle contraction and facilitating the passage of faeces, found in the leaves. In addition to being more effective than senna pods, senna leaf can typically induce a bowel movement within 6-12 hours.
