CASCARA SAGRADA - The active constituents in Cascara Sagrada are hydroxyanthraquinone glycosides called cascarosides. These cascarosides have a cathartic effect by inducing muscular contraction called peristalsis in the large intestine, encouraging a bowel movement. This is why it is considered a top natural laxative by herbalists. It is thought to be the most effective herb for colon cleansing available.

Cascara Sagrada is thought to act as a natural antibiotic in the intestines when taken internally and it has been used to help eliminate gastrointestinal parasites such as worms.

Cascara Sagrada increases the secretion of bile from the gallbladder. Because of this property, it has been used to break up and prevent gallstones.

It is thought to relieve the pressure and pain associated with hemorrhoids and anal fissures as well but this claim is only supported by traditional use.

#ALERT - Can lead to laxative dependence as the intestines begin to adapt to the anthraquinones and become less able to work on their own. Please refrain from taking it for more than 2 weeks without taking a break ( at least 2 days).
