What is Senna Leaves Tea?

“塞纳”是来自于水果和药leaves that come from a set of plants from the legume family. The herbal extract and teas made from senna plants have long been marketed as laxatives, weight-loss remedies, stimulants and detoxifying agents. Senna plants originated in Egypt, but now they are grown worldwide, including in India. They are an active ingredient in medicines that treat constipation and occasionally even weight loss supplements. However, the merit of senna tea has only been scientifically proven in treating constipation. Here are the uses of senna tea, why they should not be used in weight loss and precautions while having it.

Treating Constipation

Senna Tea is primarily used to alleviate constipation and stimulate bowel movement. The active ingredients in senna leaves are called “sennosides” or ”senna glycosides”. They cannot be metabolised by our digestive system and can only be broken down by our gut bacteria. However, the process of tearing them down lightly irritates the colon and produces a laxative effect, thus stimulating bowel movement within 6 to 12 hours of consumption. It is because of this property that senna is used as an ingredient in various over the counter constipation medicines.

Relieving Haemorrhoidal Discomfort

Having this tea is very useful in relieving discomfort caused by haemorrhoids. This disease causes swelling of veins and tissues in the lower part of the rectum, resulting in itching, pain and even bleeding. Chronic constipation can worsen haemorrhoids; therefore, drinking senna tea is prescribed for granting relief from the pain. Some people drink senna tea to clear their bowels and prepare for a colonoscopy.

Senna Tea: Side-effects & precautions

Do not have senna tea daily or else it will cause liver damage, laxative dependence and more severe health issues. Do not use it for detox or weight loss purposes. Having senna tea might cause short term diarrhoea and stomach cramps. Therefore, it is best not to drink continuously for more than seven days in a row. If you are buying commercial tea blends that include senna, never exceed the dosage it mentions. Only use senna tea as short-term aid for constipation.
