Cascara Sagrada Bark- Nature's Laxative

The herb, cascara sagrada bark, has a long history of being used as a laxative by traditional herbalists. The name "sacred bark" is given because of its naturally occurring compounds that act on the digestive system to promote bowel regularity. In this blog post, we will explore the science behind this widely used herb and its safety profile.

How It Works

Cascara sagrada bark contains compounds such as anthraquinones and tannins. These compounds work on the lining of the intestine to stimulate muscle contractions (peristalsis). This action helps move stool through the digestive system and promotes bowel regularity.cascara-sagrada-bark-laxative-effect-on-bowel-movements
