Senna Tea – Nature’s Laxative


We’ve all been there – you’re eating the right foods, you’re drinking plenty of water, but you still can’t go. Rather than heading to the drug store for an abrasive laxative containing synthetic ingredients, reach for a cup of Senna Tea. It will get you going in no time and you’ll feel good about cleansing your body the natural way.

Senna Tea, which comes from the yellow flowering Sennna Alexandrina plant, is an FDA-approved nonprescription laxative. It is most commonly used to alleviate constipation but it also relieves symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids and weight loss.  It is native to tropical climates in South America, Africa and Asia.

How Senna Tea Works as a Laxative

Senna Tea contains a compound called anthraquinone that produce glycosides or sennosides. This anthraquinone derivative interacts with bacteria in the digestive system and, along with fatty acid chains, helps break down, ferment and turn food into waste. Sennosides encourage the muscle walls of the large intestines to contract thereby pushing waste through the proper channels and out of your body. Because Senna Tea encourages large volume bowel movements, it not only helps with short-term constipation, it can also help clean out food and waste that may have been in your digestive tract for awhile.

How to Take Senna Tea as a Laxative

Senna Tea is quite powerful. It typically works within 12 hours so it is best to take it at night a few hours before bedtime. You should feel the effects by morning. Start with one 8 to 10 oz. cup of Senna Tea per night to gauge your body’s response. Due to its potency, taking too much Senna Tea can lead to diarrhea so be careful not to overdose.

Other Uses of Senna Tea

For irritable bowel syndrome, Senna Tea relaxes the muscular lining of the intestines and reduces the spasm-related pain associated with the disorder.  Senna Tea can also reduce swelling in the intestines that may make bowel movements more comfortable for people with hemorrhoids. And due to its fiber content and laxative properties, Senna Tea is sometimes used as a weight loss supplement as well.

Don’t let constipation get you down. Clear your digestive system the natural way with Senna Tea!

What is Senna Tea + How to Drink Senna Tea

What is Senna Tea

Senna Tea is a natural herbal laxative that offers great relief for the digestive system.  Constipation is a common gastrointestinal condition that usually plagues everyone at some point in their lives.  It may be temporary based on consumption of a particular food, or it may be a prolonged or chronic problem that is caused by medications, a poor diet, lifestyle choices or stress. 

Senna Tea (Senna Alexandrina) originates from Asia and Africa and helps alleviate constipation with its main bio-active ingredient anthraquinone and two byproducts known as glycosides and sennosides.  No other species of plant offers this unique combination of elements and therefore, Senna Tea is regarded as one of the best herbal laxatives known to humankind.  Even the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institute for Health recognize its benefits as a leading non-prescription natural laxative.

The rare compounds in Senna Tea work in conjunction with bacteria that lives in the digestive tract.  They cause muscles of the intestines and colon to contract, which binds digested food and encourages the removal of this waste.  Additionally, Senna Tea helps compact waste and soften stools by promoting water absorption. 

How to Drink Senna Tea

Zokiva’s Senna Tea is a powerful all-natural laxative. It usually works within 12-hours of consumption.  Start by drinking one cup of Senna Tea within a 24-hour period to gage its effect on your body.  Then begin taking up to two cups daily for digestive relief.  Many people find it most helpful to drink Senna Tea at night and reap its benefits in the morning. 

For hot Senna Tea, steep a tea bag in water for 10 minutes.  Add other soothing herbs including ginger, peppermint, hibiscus or lemon to enhance the flavor and gastric benefits. 

For cold Senna Tea, allow one tea bag to soak overnight for 10 to 12 hours but no longer.  If the water absorbs the tea bags contents longer, it can have an extreme laxative effect.  Serve over ice with a natural sweetener as you would any iced tea.
