    Cascara Sagrada: Product Information

    Today, the bark is aged or cured, and then ground into a powder, before it is used in commercial preparations. The use of cascara sagrada for constipation is approved in The Complete German Commission E Monographs, and is recognized as a safe and effective herb by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Health Canada.

    Promotes fast, gentle results

    Cascara sagrada has been tested in a number of clinical trials for its value in thorough, yet gentle cleansing of the colon. Clinical researchers have isolated several anthraquinone glycosides which are the compounds that stimulate laxative activity. These active substances promote blood circulation and nerve center stimulation, causing increased peristalsis, the vigorous wavelike contractions of the large intestine that keep food moving through the digestive system, and trigger a laxative effect. When the process speeds up, the body produces a softer, quicker bowel movement because the intestine has had less time to absorb liquid from the stool.

    Cascara sagrada is considered one of the safest laxatives that can be used to tone the colon. It is also valued for its usefulness in detoxification and colon cleansing, and has been used in cleansing programs prior to surgery or bowel exam. Studies have shown that cascara sagrada is especially gentle and effective in easing chronic constipation in elderly people.

    Combined with conventional measures to soften the stool, such as adding plenty of fiber to the diet, as well as water and exercise, the use of cascara sagrada makes sense for the relief of occasional constipation, and it can prevent the pressure and pain associated with hemorrhoids and anal fissures. In fact, by speeding up the bowel movements, hemorrhoids may be less likely to develop.
