Introduction of Senna Leaf Extract

Senna is a genus of desert flowering plants formerly known as Cassia spp. that consists of
approximately 250 individual species now collectively known as the sennas. Generally speaking,
senna leaf refers to an herb remedy obtained from Senna alexandrina. While many other senna
species have a long historical use in folk medicine, S. alexandrina is the variety best known for
treating constipation.
The purgative action of Senna Leaf Extract is primarily due to the presence of organic anthraquinones in the form of various glycosides, including hydroxyanthracene, dianthrone, and naphthalene glycosides. Senna also contains a group of glycosides referred to as simply sennosides. These compounds stimulate the smooth muscles that transport digested food through the intestines,there by contributing to enhanced stool volume and an increase in peristaltic contractions to move it out of the colon. These actions stem from two events: An increased production of acetate,proprionate and butyric short chain fatty acids to promote fermentation, or digestion; and the
successful conversion of glycosides into a powerful purgative agent known as Senna Leaf Extract.
