Cascara Sagrada is an effective stimulant laxative. For relief of occasional constipation (irregularity). This product generally produces bowel movements in 6 to 12 hours.
Cascara sagrada has a long history of traditional use by native americans. Cascara sagrada contains compounds called anthroquinones, which are responsible for cascara's powerful laxative effects. Anthraquinones trigger contractions in the colon, called peristalsis, which causes the urge to have a bowel movement. Today, it is one of the most common herbal laxatives.
In addition to being a powerful laxative, Cascara Sagrada is also believed to improve the muscle tone of the colon walls.
Cascara sagrada should not be used for longer than 7 days in a row.
