Health Concerns Gentle Senna

Gentle Senna is used to clear excess heat and regulate the body's water content.

What it is best for:

Gentle Senna may be helpful for the following:

  • Constipation
  • Supports digestion

Chinese Therapeutic Effects:

  • Clear Excess Heat
  • Regulate Body's Water Content

This is an empirical formula based on Dr. Fung's 60 years clinical experience. Constipation is generally caused by three factors. The first is diet imbalance. In addition to providing necessary nutrients, food intake should also contain enough fiber and water content to regulate bodily functions; decrease in fiber and water can result in constipation. Another dietary cause of constipation is excess heat which can result from eating too many fried foods and meat.

The second factor is occupational. Many individuals sit at their jobs for long periods. Thus, constipation results due to inactivity.

Finally, fever or other illnesses can lead to a decrease in the body's water content. In such cases, constipation is a complication which usually disappears when the illness is resolved.

The ingredients in this formula are aimed at eliminating excess heat, relieving stress caused by sitting for long periods, and supplementing fiber intake. Microcos (po bu ye), lonicera (jin yin hua) and senna (fan xie ye), are herbs that clear heat. Prunus (yu li ren) moistens the intestines and unblocks the bowels. Pueraria flower (ge hua) relieves abdominal fullness.
