Senna is a potent laxative. Its cathartic effects can be obtained from a tea prepared from one or two teaspoonfuls of dried leaves. Senna’s use in treating constipation is well documented. It is one of the most popular laxatives, especially in the elderly and for long-term laxative treatment.
- The active substances in senna leaves are called sennosides. These molecules are converted by bacteria in the colon into another substance, rhein-anthrone, which has two beneficial effects, colon activity stimulation(which speeds bowel movements and improves digestion) and increased fluid secretion.
- The laxative effect of sennosides and their active metabolite, rhein anthrone, is due to inhibition of water and electrolyte absorption from the large intestine, which increases the volume and pressure of the intestinal contents. This will stimulate the colon motility resulting in propulsive contractions.
- It is used in the treatment of constipation,working through a stimulation of intestinal peristalsis.
- It also helps to temporaroly prevent fluid from being absorbed from the larg intestine,thus contributing to softer stools.
