Common Name: Alexandrian Senna | Scientific Name: Cassia Senna

Family: Leguminosae

Senna is a laxative. More specifically, senna stimulates the intestines to empty their contents. And, if you take senna, plan on booking some bathroom time because you will be in there. The problem here is that senna is addictive, and if you use it too much, when you stop using it, you may not see the bathroom for a long time. Not an herb I reccomend.
