    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 tasting laxative you'll ever drink!

How To Use

Brew Well to be Well™

For maximum benefit, medicinal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a ceramic cup. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extract. Drink 1 cup at bedtime. If necessary repeat the next day, not to exceed 4 cups in 24 hours.
This product contains Senna. Read and follow directions carefully. Do not use if you have or develop diarrhea, loose stools, or abdominal pain because Senna may worsen these conditions and be harmful to your health. Consult your physician if you have frequent diarrhea or if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication or have a medical condition.

Best tea laxatives.
Smooth move works good for me. I will buy another box and truly works wonders.

Works very well but may not want to start off with full strength.
The first time I used it I prepared the tea as directed and while it did work quite well, I also experienced several hours of cramping. So the next time I used it I prepared a much weaker strength only steepng the bag for about one minute. Still worked but with much less cramping.

Never again!
Awful! I went through severe pain and nausea with this tea and 2 days later I’m still feeling miserable without a BM. Feels like having the worst period of my life mixed with food poisoning. If you have a sensitive gut, please beware of this tea.

Works as it should but be careful!
So I have terrible digestion issues due to my body not doing well with a lot of different foods. This tea works better than you could imagine. If I drink it in the morning and eat any food during the day, I am guaranteed multiple bowels. It also clears out my body in general, toxins and such so it gets me feeling good overall. Two complaints, one is if you don't eat enough when drinking this, I do get some pretty bad stomach cramps from it at times like to the point where I have to crouch over but they don't last long. Also if it really does its thing, sometimes I don't have access to a restroom when it hits and jeesh is it hard to keep it in cuz of the tea hahaha. Overall great product to keep around though.

To the Point
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.

True To It's Word!!!!!
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!!!

Can I drink every night?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2016
is it safe to drink one cup of smooth move a night?? love the taste !!!
A shopper on Nov 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is safe to drink one cup per night.
can a diabetic use this product? Does it contain sugar, or carbohydrates (because it has a sweet taste)
A shopper on Mar 24, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This is essentially a calorie free product (2 calories per bag) and it does not contain sugar or carbohydrates in any significant amount. Sweetness in this product is a result of the herbal blend (cinnamon, fennel, orange peel, etc). The active ingredient is Senna, which can cause diarrhea in some individuals. If this occurs, stop using the product, particularly if you are a diabetic as it may also contribute to a sudden drop in blood sugar.
Can you take it if you are pregnant?
A shopper on Sep 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: So talked to a doc...and the licorice root can cause you to go into pre-labor so I would suggest not.
Can i have more than one glass a day?
