Cleanse from the inside out. This unique product can be taken as a convenient loose leaf tea and used to work as a gentle purgative (laxative) to relieve occasional constipation. It is a special infusion of tried and tested herbs for digestive health. 

Potter’s Cleansing Herbs Tea is made with two natural active ingredients:


C. Senna which is also known as Alexandrian Senna is native to Africa and commonly cultivated in Egypt - as its alternative name suggests - and the Sudan while C. angustifolia, or Tinnevelly senna, is found in India and Pakistan. 

Senna is a proven and effective laxative. It works by interacting with the bacteria in the digestive track, resulting in intestinal contractions. These contractions are caused by the compounds known as anthraquinone glycosides that are contained in Senna. These anthraquinone glycosides derivatives are known as sennosides. The main forms of these sennosides are often referred to by: A, B, C & D. The sennosides are absorbed into the bloodstream and circulate through the body until they reach the colon where they stimulate the lining of the bowel and have a powerful laxative effect.

Senna releases histamine from the colon and prostaglandins and other autacoids are implicated in the effect.

Both leaves and pods of the senna plant are used as laxatives. The pods are less potent than the leaves.

A French study on the mechanism of action of sennosides indicates that the main modification of colonic motility induced by sennosides was a stimulation of propulsive activity (MLSBs), which occurred between 6­12 hrs after oral administration, the delay required for orocecal transit and metabolism of the drug.

Frangula Bark 

The berries of Buckthorn are used to make syrup of Buckthorn which is a laxative used particularly in veterinary practice. The bark contains naphlolide glycosides of the sorigenin type and flavonoid glycosides.  It works by relaxing the intestinal muscles.


Pour half a level teaspoonful of Potter's Cleansing Herbs Tea into a cup of boiling water at night or morning when required. Allow to stand for fifteen minutes and make sure it is cool before drinking.
