Senna is derived from the leaves and fruit of the Senna alexandrina plant. One of the few herbs that has been approved by the US FDA as a non prescription drug to treat constipation
Senna contains sennosides and anthraquinones which acts as a stimulant laxative.It works by irritating and stimulating intestinal cells, producing contractions in intestines, water influx to the intestines and bowel movement
Senna takes about 8 hours to work. It's usually recommended to take it at bedtime so it works overnight;it is also widely used in cleansing the colon before colonoscopy and other types of colon surgery
What do we regard as constipation?

You may also experience hard to pass stools, or pellet-like stools, which also constitutes constipation
