Applications and Properties:
People in northern Africa and southwestern Asia have used senna as a laxative for centuries. It was considered a "cleansing" herb because of its cathartic effect. In addition, the leaves were sometimes made into a paste and applied to various skin diseases. Ringworm and acne were both treated in this way.
Dosage Suggestions: Dry hydroalcoholic extract (5.5~8.0% hydroxyanthracene glycosides): 0.25~0.55 g. For laxative formula use: NMT 50mgs extracts in 24 hours.Special caution for use: Stimulating laxatives must not be used for more than one to two weeks without medical advice.
Safety and Toxicity:
Cautions:The mechanism of action of anthranoids, however, is somewhat worrisome: they seem to work primarily by damaging the cells lining the colon. 1 In general, cell damage can be a precursor to cancer, and on this basis concerns have been raised that senna might increase colon cancer risk.
Use of a stimulating laxative for longer than the recommended period can cause intestinal sluggishness.Not indicated for:Children younger than age 12,Pregnant and breast-feeding women.
