Senna Adopt an Herb

Senna alexandrina is a member of the pea family (Fabaceae) and is native to northern and northeastern Africa. Senna has been used for centuries in Eastern and Western medicine as a laxative and is useful for conditions in which easy defecation with soft stools is desirable, such as anal fissure or hemorrhoids.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.
