Senna

DESCRIPTION: Senna is a small herb that grows to a maximum height of about 2 feet high. The flowers are small and yellow. The pods are broadly oblong, about 2 inches long by 7/8 inch broad, and contain about six seeds.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: Used in the treatment of constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, fungal skin infections, and for hemorrhoids.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: Safe when taken by mouth in adults and children over the age of 2 for short duration. Senna is also an FDA-approved nonprescription medicine. Due to its laxative properties, it can have side effects of stomach discomfort, cramps and diarrhea. Unsafe for longer term use or in high doses as it will interfere with normal bowel functionality. Must be taken with adequate fluids.
