What is Senna Patta or Sonamukhi  Leaf (Senna Alexandrina):
Senna Patta, also known as Sonamulkhi or Senna Alexandrina is a deciduous shrub that grows up to 3 metres tall. It is one of the world's most commonly used laxatives, with a very long history of use dating back thousands of years. It is cultivated in many tropical areas, especially India, for its leaves and pods.

Senna is the leaf of the plant Senna alexandrina. It is approved in the US as a laxative for short-term treatment of constipation. Senna contains many chemicals called sennosides. Sennosides irritate the lining of the bowel, which causes a laxative effect.

Senna is an FDA-approved over-the-counter (OTC) laxative. It is used to treat constipation and also to clear the bowel before procedures such as colonoscopy. People also use senna for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), hemorrhoids, weight loss.

Constipation is a common, uncomfortable problem. It can make you feel bloated, uncomfortable and, of course, not very good about yourself.

That's why we recommend trying senna (from the plant Senna alexandrina) as a first step.

It might cause stomach upset and diarrhea. Senna should not be used for more than 1 week without the supervision of a healthcare provider.
