Senna (Senna alexandrina) was used for centuries before being introduced into trade in Europe in the 9th century. Named after the port in Alexandria, Egypt, senna was transported to Europe and Asia, where it became a mainstay in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese practices. Senna is one of the most commonly consumed herbs to help promote regularity and for relief of occasional constipation (not intended to be used to treat chronic constipation).*
Alvita Senna Tea is made with premium-quality, organic senna leaves, and has a mild, bitter flavor.
