Senna tea is most commonly used for occasional constipation. Researchers have found that the active compounds in senna have a strong laxative effect. They work by irritating the lining of the colon. This promotes colon contractions and bowel movements.
Senna also prevents water and electrolytes from being reabsorbed from the colon. This increases the amount of fluid in the intestines and softens the stool.

It is recommended to take senna for only one week. Using senna for long-term use, as well as higher doses, has been linked to serious health problems. 

If you have any type of heart, liver, or kidney condition, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider before using senna.

Likewise, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, seek a provider's advice before using senna tea.

How to make Senna Tea:

  • Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat.
  • Add the senna leaves, cover the pot, and allow them to steep for 8-10 minutes.
  • Strain the mixture into a teacup, or larger pitcher if you're making a bigger batch. Add honey or sugar, if desired, and enjoy!
