Genexa Senna Laxative Tablets
Constipation is very common, and it can happen in people of all ages. Technically speaking, constipation occurs when you are having three or fewer bowel movements per week, but realistically, the definition of constipation largely depends on what is and is not normal for you in terms of your bowel schedule.
Constipation can be more generally understood as having less bowel movements than what is normal for you.
Constipation itself can be very uncomfortable, and the longer you go without having a bowel movement, the more difficult it can become to pass stool.
Constipation tends to cause the following symptoms:
- Stools that are dry and hard
- Bowel movements that are painful or require you to strain
- Stools that are difficult or painful to pass
- Feeling like you have not completely emptied your bowels even after passing stool
Constipation can affect anyone, but there are certain groups of people who are thought to be at an increased risk of experiencing constipation, such as:
- People of an older age, as old age can lead to a slower metabolism, less exercise, and less muscle contraction strength
- Women, especially pregnant women or women who have recently given birth
- People who are not eating enough fiber
- Those taking certain medications
- Those with certain medical conditions or health issues, such as digestive disorders or neurological diseases
Constipation happens when your stool moves through your large intestine too slowly, resulting in the colon having too much time to absorb water from it. As a result, too much water gets taken out of the stool, causing it to become dry and hard in the digestive tract.
Many cases of constipation are nothing too serious, and having constipation sometimes is generally nothing to worry about. However, if your constipation is particularly severe or prolonged (i.e. you have chronic constipation), you should consult your doctor for a professional opinion, as this may indicate a health issue beyond everyday, common causes of constipation.
Most cases of constipation can be relieved through the use of over the counter medicine, and Genexa Senna Laxative is an organic laxative product that can bring you relief in just 6 to 12 hours.
Genexa Senna Laxative: A Closer Look at Active and Inactive Ingredients
Genexa Senna Laxative is organic and works to bring you gentle, overnight relief from constipation.
The active ingredient is organic sennosides, or senna, which is derived from a plant and has long been used as a more natural means of soothing symptoms of constipation.
Senna can be very safe and effective when used correctly, but you should consult your doctor before using any form of laxative if you have certain health issues, like irritable bowel syndrome or other digestive conditions.
The inactive ingredients in Genexa Senna Laxative are organic rice bran extract, organic rice extract blend, sodium bicarbonate, organic tapioca dextrose, and organic tapioca maltodextrin, making this product organic, vegan, and free of artificial inactive ingredients like artificial colors and flavors.
Understanding Laxatives: What You Should Know
There are many different types of laxatives available, and different types of laxatives can work in different ways, but all laxatives are intended to bring relief from constipation by making it easier for you to pass stool.
Senna specifically can work to increase the amount of water in your stool, making it softer and easier to pass.
Laxatives may work best if you make sure to drink plenty of water, eat enough fiber or take fiber supplements, and get appropriate amounts of exercise while you are using them. You should always be careful to avoid using laxatives for longer than is recommended. Using laxatives for too long can end up worsening your symptoms or causing other complications in your bowels.
Always read the instructions and information on the product label very carefully before using your medicine for the first time, and consult your doctor with any questions.
Genexa Senna Laxative is safe for use by children between the ages of 6 and 12 years as well as adults and children aged 12 years or older, and you should talk to your doctor before giving this product to any child who is younger than 6 years of age.
If your symptoms worsen or fail to improve in spite of use of stool softeners, stimulant laxatives, and other methods of treatment, or if you experience any of the following symptoms, you should consult your doctor:
- Bloody stool
- Severe abdominal pain
- Unintended and unexplained weight loss
- High fever
Much of what causes constipation is nothing more than a temporary nuisance, but it is always best to get a professional opinion whenever you have new, worsening, or persistent symptoms in your bowel habits that are concerning you.
The Bottom Line
Constipation is a very common issue that can affect people of all ages, and it occurs when you are having fewer bowel movements than is normal for you.

Constipation is often nothing serious, but you should consult your doctor if your symptoms are severe or if you have bloody stool, weight loss, or severe abdominal pain.
