Cascara Sagrada (450mg) Overview
Cascara Sagrada, or rhamnus purshiana, is a species of buckhorn with a long history of holistic use among Native Americans as an effective herbal laxative. Cascara Sagrada is a stimulant laxative commonly used for the treatment of constipation and general bowel cleansing. *
Cascara’s laxative effect comes from the high concentrations of Cascara glycosides consisting of cascarosides A, B, C & D. These cascarosides speed up movement within the bowels and facilitate the excretory process. Research suggests that Cascara Sagrada also strengthens the colon walls by improving their muscle tone. This mechanism may continue to promote healthy digestion and bowel movements even after supplementation is stopped. Typically, between 225-450mg of Cascara Sagrada is taken in the early evening to help facilitate regular bowel movements the following morning. *
