This premium Cascara Sagrada bark has been naturally aged to eliminate constituents which may cause irritation.
Cascara sagrada has a long history of traditional use by the Native Americans, Spanish and Mexican priests since the 1800s. Cascara contains anthraquinones, which are responsible for its laxative effects. In Spanish, Cascara sagrada means "sacred bark," perhaps because of its effectiveness.

- "Purgative or cathartic laxatives are generally not good for long term use, as they can cause damage and dependency, but are amazing for occasional use when necessary. Cascara sagrada is the gentlest of this categories and thus safer than something like senna or aloe. It may also help to tone the lower GI, according to some herbalists, but again, I wouldn't use it long term. Potent, effective, and one of few exceptions to the 'herbs are complex and don't just do one thing' rule." - Nick Becker.
