The active principles of Senna are absorbed from the gut and are excreted largely into the colon, where they stimulate peristaltic movement like normal bowel function. Saunf is an aromatic carminative. It is given for the treatment of flatulence. Spogel derived from the husk of mucilaginous seeds absorbs water and has a remarkable power of absorbing bacterial and other toxins. The action is purely mechanical in producing smooth semisolid stool.
