It’s time to drink your way back to regularity with Smooth Move
Traditional Medicinals Smooth Move Tea is the sweet-tasting way to help relieve occasional constipation and regain your vitality. This caffeine-free herbal laxative of natural senna leaf works so your system can function once again. Adults and children over 12 years drink 1 cup before bedtime.
Label Information: Smooth Move® is formulated to act as a stimulant laxative based on the traditional use of senna leaf for relief of occasional constipation. Senna leaf, as a laxative herbal tea ingredient has at least a one thousand year history of human use in traditional Arabian, Asian and European herbal medicines. Today senna leaf preparations are approved for use as laxatives in the national pharmacopoeias and formularies of China, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Japan, Switzerland, and the United States. Senna's laxative action is largely attributed to its anthranoidcontent. Anthranaoids are compounds naturally occurring in many plant laxatives, including aloe, buckthorn, sacara sagrada, rhubarb, and senna.
Senna is an herbaceous low branching shrub native to Southern India (Tinnevelly district of Madras) and to the semidesert Nile region of northern Africa (Egypt, Sudan) and is now mostly cultivated in China, India and Pakistan. The yellowish-green to pale olive leaflets are hand-collected, dried and graded 3-5 months after planting. In Smooth Move®tea, only pharmacopoeial grade senna leaf is used containing the required level of its stimulant laxative active constituents known as hydroxyanthracene glycosides (sennosides A & B).

Works gently and effectively!Occasionally, I suffer from constipation before or after my menstrual cycle but I have problems with even the most "gentle" laxatives. This tea is amazing! It really works and it works gently; no severe cramping or nausea. Usually one cup before bed will do it and you'll be "going" by morning after you get up and move around a bit. I wouldn't take more than two cups at a time. If you haven't gone in 3- 5 days this will do the trick and you will still be able to go about your daily routine! Good luck.
