Senna Tea is a powerful herbal laxative. Praised as one of the best all-natural solutions for constipation, Senna Tea soothes the colon for gentle relief.What is Senna
Senna is an herb native to China, India and Northern Africa. Its leaves and pods have potent nutrients that benefit the gastrointestinal track. The primary health advantages of Senna come from a compound known as anthraquinone and its derivatives glycosides and sennosides. These are unique to the genus Senna and are responsible for its main health benefit, digestive relief.Benefits of Senna Tea
Senna is mainly used as a natural laxative. In fact, it is one of the strongest non-prescription strength laxatives approved by the Food and Drug Administration and acknowledged by the National Institute for Health.
Constipation occurs when waste gets trapped in the digested track for a variety of reasons. Some constipation is a result of a poor diet lacking fiber and water. Others experience constipation due to stress or while taking certain medications. Constipation can also be caused by chronic diseases.
The glycosides and sennosides found in Senna interact with bacteria in the digestive track to stimulate intestinal and colon muscles. By contracting, these muscles compact and ferment digested food and push feces through the system. Ancient Chinese herbalists believe that Senna removes heat from the colon, which helps round up debris and cleanse the body through normal waste elimination. Senna also aids absorption of water to soften stools for more comfortable bowel movements. Some people also use Senna as a natural alternative to cleanse the bowels before a colonoscopy. How to Take Senna Tea
Senna Tea can be taken once or twice daily to relieve constipation. Start with one cup of Senna Tea to gauge your body’s individual reaction to the herb. Senna usually works within six to 12 hours after consumption. Therefore, it is best to take Senna Tea at night to experience constipation relief the next morning.
Senna blends nicely with other stomach soothing herbs such as peppermint, ginger and fennel. Soak Senna Tea bags for 10 minutes in hot water before drinking. Or, let tea bags soak in cold water for 10-12 hours before drinking. Only make the amount you will drink at one time as letting Senna soak too long will amplify its effects.Health Benefits of Senna Tea
