Like cascara sagrada, senna is an active ingredient in many brand-name laxatives (such as Ex-Lax). Why bother with a bunch of fillers, flavorings, and a trademark when you can use a natural substance?

Senna supplements Dosage Options:

When constipated, 50 milligrams of a standardized supplement once or twice a day, 1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon of a liquid leaf extract daily, or 3 to 6 pods steeped in a cup of warm water every 6 to 12 hours. Senna's seedpods possess more constipation-relieving might than do its leaves, but leaf formulations are deemed safer. To reduce the likelihood of intestinal pain when taking senna, mix it with ginger, cloves, or mint.
