    What will Smooth Move® do for me? Smooth Move provides gentle, overnight relief from occasional constipation. Senna leaf promotes bowel movement by direct action on the intestine.* How do I know it works? A single serving provides an effective dose of sennosides from senna leaf, which have proven stimulant laxative action and are generally recognized as safe and effective by the U.S. FDA. We include additional digestive support with fennel, orange peel, cinnamon, coriander and ginger to ease discomfort and reduce cramping. When should I use it? Drink one cup before bedtime. Repeat the next day if needed. Smooth Move will generally produce bowel movements in 8 to 12 hours. How does it taste? It's sweet and slightly bitter, with citrus-orange and spicy notes...best tasting laxative you'll ever drink!

Health Notes

Digestive Enzymes

Digestive Enzymes
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

4 to 8 tablets a day of proteolytic enzymes containing trypsin, chymotrypsin, and/or bromelainas Proteolytic Enzymes3 stars[3 stars]

Acne Rosacea
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Digestive enzymes have been reported anecdotally to improve rosacea symptoms.
Allergies and Sensitivities and Food Allergies
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
Proteolytic enzymes may theoretically reduce allergy symptoms by breaking down undigested protein to sizes that are too small to cause allergic reactions.
Chronic Candidiasis

Digestive enzymes inhibit the overgrowth of candida and prevent it from becoming established in the small intestine.
Crohn's Disease
Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]

Digestive enzymes are complex proteins involved in digestion that stimulate chemical changes in other substances. They work optimally at specific temperature and pH. Digestive enzymes include pancreatic enzymes, plant-derived enzymes, and fungal-derived enzymes. There are three classes of digestive enzymes: proteolytic enzymes needed to digest protein, lipases needed to digest fat, and amylases needed to digest carbohydrates.

        First off, to the person who said they had no clue it was going to be licorice. Did you even read the ingredients? It says licorice root at the top of the ingredients.

        Anyway, I have all sorts of digestive issues and this is by far the best product that has helped me in over 3 years. Does exactly what it says. Tea is good to drink. I let mine cool off a bit before drinking. No cramping. Not running to the bathroom. I love this and cant wait to buy some more.

          This tea has saved me!!! I am 43 years old and have NEVER been regular. I am very active and drink lots of water and am Vegitarian. I have always had to take some sort of fiber and it would NEVER work! I heard about this and am NEVER without it! It taste GREAT. You have to let it seep for at least five min. in boiling hot water for the full flavor. It tase so much better than chamomile. It taste so good that I can't believe its a laxative. As soon as I get up in the morning I GO! You will not be dissappointed!!!

              This tea works great and there is minimal cramping. Unlike the overnight pills that say "produce results in 6-12 hours" and then don't, this tea is a sure thing. If you can get past the licorice-like taste it's worth it.
