Product description

To relieve occasional constipation in the short term.

For short-term relief of occasional constipation, Senokot contains senna/sennosides, which work as stimulant laxatives. Congestion is a fairly common and uncomfortable condition, which includes hard, dry motions and difficult or irregular bowel movements. Weight loss cannot be achieved by using laxatives.
