Senna Extract 20%
Senna Leaf is commonly known as senna or Alexandrian senna, and its scientific name is Cassia angustifolia. It is a herb. The active components sennoside in senna leaf extract are anthraquinone derivatives and their glucosides, referred to as senna glycosides or sennosides.
Senna is an FDA-approved over-the-counter OTC laxative. A prescription is not required to purchase senna. The two original kinds of senna Cassia senna and Cassia angustifolia used to make remedies are now mass-cultivated for medicinal purposes – primarily for their laxative properties. Senna is often taken as a tea, capsule, tablet or liquid extract.
Senna has been used since the 9th century by Arabian physicians as a laxative and has been known as the cleansing herb. Only the leaves and the pods of the herb are therapeutically useful, states Herbs 2000.
