4 Health Benefits of Senna Leaf Tea
Senna leaf is one of the main ingredients of Herbal One’s Bio Body Cleanse. And that name gives you a hint about one of the benefits you can get when you drink senna tea.
- It Can Be Used to Treat Constipation – The laxative effect of the green tea helps promote bowel movements and return your digestive system to healthy, optimal performance. In the U.S., senna has been approved by the Food & Drug Administration as a non-prescription treatment for constipation.
- It’s Known as the “Cleansing Herb”– In addition to its laxative properties, traditional Chinese medicine has used senna leaf to help reduce abdominal pain by lowering heat in the large intestine as it clears away food that’s been trapped there and in the stomach for an extended period of time. It’s also known as a detox tea based on its ability to eliminate toxins in the digestive system to improve nutrient absorption and metabolism.
- It Relieves Indigestion – Senna tea is linked to reducing symptoms of indigestion, including heartburn, nausea and bloating.
- It Promotes Weight Loss – By relieving constipation, improving digestive system functions, and getting rid of toxins, senna tea not only creates a better environment for nutrient absorption and efficient metabolism, but it also helps your body lose weight in the long-term. And the more fluids you drink, the less food you’ll eat.
