Product Details

Primary uses of cascara bark:

  1. Laxative: Cascara bark contains anthraquinone glycosides, particularly cascarosides, which have a stimulant effect on the colon. These compounds help to promote bowel movements and relieve constipation. Cascara bark is commonly used as a natural laxative and is found in various herbal laxative formulas.

  2. Bowel regularity: In addition to its laxative properties, cascara bark can also help regulate bowel movements over the long term. By supporting the muscular contractions of the colon, it can assist in establishing regularity in individuals with chronic constipation.

  3. Colon cleansing: Cascara bark is often included in colon cleansing or detoxification programs. Its laxative effects help to cleanse the colon by promoting the elimination of waste material and potentially toxins from the body.

  4. Digestive support: Cascara bark has been used to support digestive health by stimulating the secretion of digestive juices and improving the overall digestive process. It may aid in relieving digestive discomfort and promoting healthy digestion
