Cascara Sagrada Bark Benefits & Information

Cascara Sagrada is a species of buckthorn shrub or small tree native to North America.  Historically, cascara sagrada bark was used by Native Americans as a laxative.  The bark of the shrub is stripped in the spring and is traditionally dried for one year before it is used for medicinal purposes.  Studies have found that Cascara sagrada bark contains anthraquinones, a powerful natural laxative compound. 

Cascara sagrada bark is a purgative herb, this botanical laxative that stimulates muscle contractions in the intestines to help move the stool through the bowels.  Research has found that cascara sagrada bark promotes large intestine and colon health, supports smooth muscle function, may be beneficial for occasional constipation, and supports liver and gallbladder health.

Use cut cascara sagrada bark to make a tea, decoction, or tincture.  Cascara sagrada powder can be used to make your own fresh filler-free cascara sagrada bark capsules.
