Function of Senna Leaf Extract Powder
The active ingredient in senna leaves is called sensenoside. The molecule is converted into another substance in the colon by microorganisms. It is called rhubarb anthrone.This substance has a beneficial effect on stimulating colon activity. (it speeds up bowel movement and improves digestion) and increases fluid secretion.
The laxative effect of sennoside and its active metabolite anthrone rheinate are thought to inhibit the absorption of water and electrolyte in the large intestine, thereby increasing the volume and pressure of intestinal contents. It will stimulate the progressive contraction of the colon. In addition, the stimulation of active chloride secretion increased the contents of water and electrolyte in the intestine. These changes in the transport of active electrolyte depend on calcium on the serosal surface. The mild diarrhea effect of sennoside is partly mediated by stimulation of colon fluid and electrolyte secretion, which is regulated by stimulation of endogenous prostaglandin formation. Sennoside can be prepared into enema or suppository or mixed with stool softener or lump fiber laxative to form a combined laxative.
Side Effect of Senna Leaf powder
Senna is LIKELY SAFE for most adults and children over age 2 when taken by mouth, short-term. Senna is an FDA-approved nonprescription medicine. Senna can cause some side effects including stomach discomfort, cramps, and diarrhea.
Senna is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken by mouth long-term or in high doses. Don't use senna for more than two weeks. Longer use can cause the bowels to stop functioning normally and might cause dependence on laxatives. Long-term use can also change the amount or balance of some chemicals in the blood (electrolytes) that can cause heart function disorders, muscle weakness, liver damage, and other harmful effects.
