Senna Leaf comes from the plant known by the Latin botanical name of Senna alexandrina. It is also commonly known as wild senna, locust plant and American senna. Starwest directly sources our Senna alexandrina from our suppliers in Egypt, and then we process the Senna Leaf ourselves in-house at our processing facility, allowing us to supervise the process in its entirety in order to bring you the highest quality dried herbs on the market today.
This dried herb may help to increase peristaltic movements of the colon and is commonly used as a purgative. It should not be used if you are pregnant or nursing, nor should it be used if you have abdominal pain or diarrhea.
