In a previous study, Japanese scientists discovered that agarwood acetone extracts had a laxative effect on normal mice and that the most pharmacologically active components of this extract are genkwanin-5-O-beta primeveroside. In fact, extracts of both Aquilaria leaves (A.sinensis and A.crassna) have been shown to increase the contraction tension of the small intestine.EEA (ethanol extract of agarwood leaves) had a laxative effect on rats that were constipated from having low-fibre diets, and multiple doses of EEA did not cause diarrhea as senna administration does. These findings suggest that EEA may be useful as a therapeutic laxative agent for humans (Mamoru Kakino, Gifu Pharmaceutical University)Senna can be used as a laxative. Senna can induce diarrhoea in certain people. So EEA is a good alternative.Many people have been brewing Agarwood tea (Aquilaria leaves). They said that drinking Agarwood tea makes them poop easier.
