Ingredients’ features

The main acting substances of Senna are anthraglycosides that have pronounced laxative effect. The mechanism of action consists in stimulation of mucous membrane receptors of the gastrointestinal tract, reducing secretion as well as enhancing peristalsis in a portion of the large intestine. In the dietary supplement “Senna D” this effect is reinforced due to the adding of powder of the roots and rhizomes of Inula helenium and MCC to its composition.

Roots and rhizomes of Inula helenium are helpful to eliminate the cause of constipation – dyskinesia of bile ducts. Inula contains inulin, inulenin, and helenin that normalize the intestinal microflora balance and the functioning of gastrointestinal tract, activate the function of immune system, and improve the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

Microcrystalline cellulose  (MCC) forms a colloid gel and dispersion in the stomach; absorbs moisture and swells by absorbing waste products, and excretes them from the body. MCC does not affect useful for the body proteins and molecules of nutrients as well as nutrition balance. MCC actively interacts with cholesterol and thus prevents its absorption into the blood. While in the gastrointestinal tract, microcrystalline cellulose stimulates receptors related to motor and secretory activities of the intestines. In addition, it affects the formation of fecal deposits and increases their volume, reduces intestinal pressure, and stabilizes intestinal microflora.
