Sana Makki, Cassia Angustifolia is an herb is known for its laxative properties. It is also known as wild senna, cassia marilandica and locust plant. Senna (Cassia) interacts with the bacteria in the digestive tract, resulting in intestinal contractions. These contractions are caused by the anthraquinone that is contained in senna.
Senna is a safe and effective laxative used widely throughout the world. However, repeated use of strong purgatives such as Senna may aggravate constipation and weaken the tone of the colon. This herb should be used only if no effects can be obtained through changes in diet or the use of bulk-forming products. This herb is not recommended if you are pregnant, menstruating, or lactating. This product should not be given to children under 12 years of age.
