Constituents.—The constituents of senna leaves are not yet well known. Anthraglucosennin is the name given to a mixture of substances obtained by exhausting senna with weak ammonia, precipitating with hydrochloric acid, drying the precipitate, exhausting with alcohol, and evaporating to dryness. It contains senna-emodin, C15H7O2(OH)3, which appears to be identical with aloe-emodin, but different from frangula-emodin and rheum-emodin; senna-chrysophanic acid, probably not identical with ordinary chrysophanic acid; glucosennin, a glucoside yielding apparently senna-emodin and a sugar; senna-isoemodin, which closely resembles senna-emodin, but is soluble in petroleum spirit; senna-rhamnetin and senna-nigrin, the last two being ill-defined substances. Probably, therefore, the drug originally contains senna-emodin, senna-isoemodin, senna-chrysophanic acid, and glucosides yielding these bodies by hydrolysis. The so-called cathartic acid is undoubtedly a mixture. The drug contains in addition mucilage.

Action and Uses.—Senna is a member of the anthracene group of purgatives, its active principles being derivatives of anthraquinone. It is an efficient purgative either for occasional use or in habitual constipation. It is free from the after-astringent action of rhubarb, but, on account of its tendency to gripe, is usually combined with carminatives and other laxatives. Syrupus Sennae, Confectio Sennae, and Pulvis Glycyrrhizae Compositus are administered as suitable laxatives for the use of children and delicate persons, and are especially valuable in haemorrhoids. The infusion of senna is an active preparation, and is a useful vehicle for magnesium sulphate and other saline cathartics. The urine may be turned a yellow colour by senna, which changes to red on the addition of an alkali; it is uncertain, however, whether this is due to the absorption of the irritant principle. The properties of senna preparations ire altered by excessive heat and by the action of alkalies. The B.P. Mistura Sennae Composita retains its activity better when the aromatic spirit of ammonia is omitted.

Important - Senna can aid weight loss, but should be treated with cautionToday, because of the presence of ample anthraquinones, sennas are still used as the primary ingredient in certain commercial stimulant laxatives. Senna is also the primary ingredient found in most "dieter's teas". The combination of acting as a stimulant which reduces a dieter's appetite, and the laxative properties that cause food to move through your system before as many calories can be absorbed, is a combination that can lead to rapid and even dangerous weight loss. Bowel evacuation naturally decreases weight by a small amount. But when dieting, you should weigh yourself after bowel and bladder evacuation. Then monitor your weight daily. Take a note of your daily weight, and make a graph. The slow weight loss you should detect will help motivate you during the difficult period of dieting. The only way to safely diet is to eat healthily, eat less and exercise regularly. Treat all slimming aids with care.
