Our Teas Distributors About Us Order
Manasul Tea (Senna)

MANASUL is specially formulated to help you lose unwanted pounds and improve how your digestive system functions. It is formulated with you in mind, so it taste’s great. Manasul tea is made from senna, also known by the old scientific name Cassia. Our senna is an Asian shrub that grows in India, Pakistan, and China of which both the leaves and the pods are equally medicinally effective as a mild laxative. We use only the senna leaves in our herbal blend, and avoid using the bitter pods. There is no comparison; the gentle flavor of Manasul is evident in every cup-full you drink.

History and Folklore

Senna has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. Northern Africans and southwestern Asian have used it as a laxative. Senna was considered a "cleansing" herb due to its liberating qualities. Additionally, the leaves were sometimes made into a paste and applied to various skin diseases. Ringworm and acne were both treated in this way. Most senna preparations have a bitter, slightly nauseating taste.

Manasul is specially blended and carefully prepared to insure that every cupful has a smooth, evenly balanced and very pleasant flavor.

Whether your goal is to lose weight or to improve your digestion, please use senna responsibly. The overuse of laxatives can cause the colon to become dependent on them to move properly. As with many herbal products, such as echinacea, consecutive use of senna may prevent you from achieving the results you want safely and effectively.

Senna should be consumed for a maximum of ten consecutive days. You should resume use after an interval of a few days. All products with laxative effects can also cause loss of fluids, low potassium levels, and diarrhea, all of which can lead to dehydration and negative effects on the heart and muscles if abused. Mansul is safe for use in pregnancy and lactation but only under the supervision of a physician.

How does senna work?

How does Manasul work? Senna contains anthraquinone glycosides known as sennosides. These molecules are converted into rhein-anthrone by the normal bacteria in the colon. This in turn has two effects. It first stimulates colon activity by affecting the lining of the large intestine and thus speeds bowel movements. Second, it increases fluid secretion by the colon. Together, these actions work to get a sluggish colon functional again.

How much should I use?

A single tea bag in a cup of boiling water consumed as an after dinner tea should be enough to stimulate your digestive system. Many people experience a bowel movement early the next morning. One can usually expect a bowel movement 10 hours after consumption. Some individuals are more sensitive to senna than others.

We recommend increasing the frequency with which you drink Manasul slowly, beginning with a cup after dinner two to three times a week. Manasul provides excellent relief from constipation. You may experience cramps as your bowel movements begin to regulate. Mint tea can help decrease cramping during these times (see our Poleo Menta Tea section). If constipation is not alleviated within a week or if cramping persists, individuals should seek the help of a health care professional.

Manaul is safe for children over the age of six; however, half a cup should be used instead to provide adequate relief. Great results can be achieved by drinking Manasul only 4-5 times a week. Manasul tea is less concentrated than senna tablets, which makes it safer to use long term.
