Health Benefits of Senna Leaf

Senna Leaf is most commonly used as a laxative or a weight loss aid.  Health benefits include: 

  • Stimulates bowel movements to relieve constipation.
  • May relieve discomfort associated with hemorrhoids.  
  • May boost metabolism and promote weight loss, but using it for this reason is not recommended.
  • Used as a detox tea based on its ability to eliminate toxins in the digestive system to improve nutrient absorption and metabolism.

How to Use Senna Leaf

  • Usually used as a tea by itself or in tea blends. 

Cautions and Side Effects of Senna Leaf

  • Senna is not recommended for frequent or long-term use, as it may alter normal bowel tissue function and cause laxative dependence.
  • The most common side effects are stomach cramps, nausea, and diarrhea. However, these symptoms are usually mild and tend to resolve relatively quickly. 
  • Senna is meant to serve as a short-term constipation remedy. You shouldn’t use it for more than 7 consecutive days unless otherwise directed by your healthcare provider.
  • May interfere with pharmaceuticals, so ask your doctor before using if you are on any medication.
  • If you have heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), or liver disease, you should consult your healthcare provider prior to taking any senna product, as it may exacerbate these conditions.
  • Not for use if pregnant or breastfeeding.
