The Danger of Senna Leaves for Weight Loss

Senna leaves can be taken as a laxative, but should not be used for weight loss indiscriminately. Unfortunately, too many people are beginning to use senna to accelerate their weight loss because they believe it passes their food faster through their gastrointestinal tract. They believe so because senna is advertised as a laxative and many believe that taking a laxative will help them lose weight without the trauma and dangers of forcing themselves to vomit their food as many bulimics do.

Many take senna teas continuously after a meal, but the problem here is that senna leaves reduce the appetite and also force the food through your system too quickly for you to gain the full nutritional benefit. This can be dangerous, and yes, you may lose weight in the short term, but in the longer term you will suffer malnutrition which leads to unhealthy, or even dangerous, weight loss.

Senna leaves can help you to overcome constipation, and can also be useful as a temporary appetite suppressant, but when you add these two effects together you are asking for trouble. Refer to your doctor or physician if you intend using senna leaves to lose weight.
