Organic Smooth Move Laxative Tea, 16 Tea Bags
Item #: 3206
Organic Smooth Move Peppermint, 16 Tea Bags
Senna leaf is the "move" in Smooth Move, and works by direct action on the intestine, which is why it is called a stimulant laxative. The pharmacopoeial grade senna leaf in Smooth Move contains an effective dose of sennosides - the component of the herb that ensures the laxative effect. Peppermint, licorice and fennel are traditionally combined with senna to ease discomfort and reduce the potential for unpleasant feelings, such as cramping. Organic Smooth Move® Peppermint is pleasantly aromatic and bittersweet.
Directions: For maximum benefit, herbal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a cup. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extract. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup!
Adults and children 12 years of age and over: Drink 1 cup preferably at bedtime, or as directed by a doctor.
