What You Should Know
Swiss Kriss Herbal Laxative is one of the few laxatives we have reviewed that warns dieters not to take the supplement for anything other than occasional relief.

Swiss Kriss Herbal Laxative contains senna, a stimulant that causes the muscles of the bowel to contract. This contraction naturally occurs when waste is moved out of the body, but senna forces it to happen with stronger contractions before the body is ready to expel waste. Expelling waste early forces food out of the body before the intestines can absorb all the necessary nutrients. The remaining ingredients in the mix have no effect on constipation.
In terms of natural constipation relief, Swiss Kriss Herbal Laxative is generally considered safe. As is the fact with all herbal laxatives, users should not take this product within two hours (before or after) taking prescription medications. Laxatives can reduce the absorption of medications and thus reduce the efficacy of treatment. The majority of reviews on the product are from users 50 years and older. These users are more likely to be taking prescription medications for age-related illnesses or conditions than younger users.
