Tamarine® falls into the category of stimulant laxatives (stimulating intestinal motility) and promotes increased peristalsis (or peristaltic motion) via at least two mechanisms that are activated by the active substances of the contained senna: anthraquinones (Sennosides A+B)

Sennosides A and B and their metabolism products act in the large intestine, promoting local water secretion and stimulating local nerves, making intestinal motility easier and faster.

Senna acts approximately 8-12 hours following ingestion.

Additional ingredients, such as coriander and tamarind, further enhance the laxative effect of the product, relieving spasms and local pain.
