Traditional Medicinals Organic Smooth Move® Herbal Tea Chamomile Description
Senna Stimulant Laxative Tea
Naturally Caffeine Free
16 Wrapped Tea Bags
For gentle overnight relief from occasional constipation (irregularity).
Easy to use: One cup of tea taken before bedtime will generally produce a bowel movement the next morning, within 6-12 hours.
How it works: Senna leaf is the "move" in Smooth Moves, and works by direct action on the intestine, which is why it is called a stimulant laxative. The pharmacopoeial grade senna leaf in Smooth Move contains an effective dose of sennosides - the component of the herb that ensures the laxative effect.
Chamomile, fennel and peppermint are traditionally combined with senna to ease discomfort and reduce the potential for unpleasant feelings, such as cramping.
Taste: Pleasantly aromatic and bittersweet.
Drink Smooth Move responsibly. Please follow all directions for use.
