SD’s Tea is a blend of fruit, spices and herbal ingredients. It’s formulated to aid weight loss by stimulating regular bowel movements.
Based on an ingredient used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, this unique tea blend relies on the stimulating effects of Senna leaf. Senna belongs to a large genus of flowering plants found throughout the tropics.
Cassia angustifolia (Indian or Tinnevelly senna) in leaf and extract form are used to deliver a consistent and reliable laxative effect. The active components in senna extracts are anthraquinone derivatives and their glucosides, referred to as senna glycosides or sennosides. They are believed to gently irritate the wall of the colon to promote peristalsis and evacuation. Senna may also enhance intestinal fluid accumulation and increase the moisture content of stool by inhibiting electrolyte and water reabsorption from the colon.
The typical dose is 15 to 30 mg of sennosides twice a day, but is recommended for short term use only (less than one week). Side effects may include abdominal cramps and electrolyte imbalance.
For over a quarter of a century in Canada, SD’s Tea has been a safe and trusted ally to help people with occasional bouts of constipation.
I just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to your company for its wonderful products. I have battled low iron for almost 20 years now. In that time, I was never able to find a supplement that I could tolerate well enough to continue…even iron shots were not doing a good job.
I was introduced to EasyIron by a naturopath and all I can say is WOW. No digestive upset and the best news…my iron has doubled in three months. I still have a ways to go but am confident that I am on the right track. Thank you so much for creating such a stellar product.
At the recommendation of health food store staff, I changed my multi to one of their popular brands for a few months. During that time, I didn’t have the sense of wellbeing I was accustomed to, and I decided to switch back to Platinum Naturals’ Super EasyMulti 45+. Within one week, my nails stopped peeling and became noticeably stronger. Within several weeks, I experienced an increase in energy and regulation of my menstrual cycle. I won’t be switching again!
