The herb that fights constipation and cleanses the digestive system.
Net weight: 100g
They may be called leaves, but they are the pods of a plant called senna, cassia, cinnamon, Alexandria leaves or Egypt leaves
Its most important therapeutic components are:
The active substance chrysophenic acid, which has laxative properties and is the main component of many commercial pharmaceutical laxative preparations.
Alexandria leaves contain substances called anthraquinone glycosides, which have been shown to have a laxative effect, helping digestion and the movement of food through the intestine
The fruits and leaves of senna contain sennosides A and B (sennosides A & B), substances which are hydrolyzed by the bacteria of the human intestine and are broken down yielding the previous active substance anthraquinone. Sennosides A and B and their breakdown products act on the large intestine, accelerating the transport of the contents of the intestine to the colon. Several studies claim that these glycosides also have an anti-toxic effect on the liver.
The rheinic and cassic acids which are proven to have bactericidal and fungicidal action in the gastrointestinal system.
How to use: As soon as the water starts to boil, take it off the heat and add the herb. Leave it for 10-20 minutes, strain it and use it. Usual proportions for the infusion are 1-3 teaspoons for every cup of water.
They should not be used for a long time as a laxative (no more than 10 days) because the muscles of the large intestine weaken. Too frequent use can also cause dizziness and vomiting.
For milder action and better tolerance by the body, senna is often combined with cinnamon, cloves and ginger.
Packaging: Very practical, which keeps the contents fresh and allows you to open & close it multiple times.
