SENNA {Senna alexandrina} is a small, peel-able-bark shrub that grows in the upper Nile regions of Africa and the Arabian peninsula.

Senna was used over 3500 years ago by ancient Egyptian physicians According to rare and amazing Egyptian medical papyrus, dating to 16th century B.C. Senna was prescribed by physicians for their distinguished patients.

It was also used extensively by Arabian physicians, according to their 9th century A.D. writings.

Senna was introduced to Europe before the Crusades and has been widely used ever since. The Native Americans also employed the use of American Senna, a variety of European species. Senna is often combined with various aromatic herbs.

PS-DUE to meds causing constipation, this tea works so very well. The question begs asking? how did they know this would be so effective centuries ago?
