Many people frequently suffer from occasional constipation, a common digestive problem, throughout their lives. It is characterised by difficulty in defecation, hard stools and reduced frequency of bowel movements. Although it is usually a temporary problem, it can still cause discomfort and unease.
Medicines made from senna and figs in liquid form can provide support. Senna in the recommended dosage produces a soft, slippery stool. This effect is supported by the mucilage, fructose and the acid of the figs.
