Natural Vegetable Laxative for the relief of constipation. Provides
gentle and safe Bowel Stimulation.
The active ingredient in all Senna Tabs Vegetable Laxatives is purified senna. Used for centuries to help relieve constipation, senna is derived from Cassia acutifolia or Cassia angustifolia - the senna plant.
Taking senna by mouth is effective for short-term treatment of constipation. Senna is an FDA-approved nonprescription drug for adults and children ages 2 years and older. However, in children ages 3-15 years, mineral oil and a medication called lactulose might be more effective than taking senna. Senna also appears to be effective for treating constipation when used in combination with psyllium or docusate sodium. In elderly people, senna plus psyllium is more effective than lactulose for treating ongoing constipation. Senna plus docusate sodium is effective for treating constipation in the elderly and in people who have undergone anorectal surgery. Taking senna appears to be as effective as lactulose, psyllium, and docusate for relieving constipation in people taking opioids or loperamide.
