Cascara Sagrada 450 mg - 250 Caps

Cascara Sagrada, also known as “sacred bark”, was first introduced to Spanish explorers during the 16th century by North American Indians.  It has a mild laxative effect, due to the natural constituents that that induce contractions in the large intestines. 

Cascara Sagrada's primary function is to promote more frequent, more normal bowel movements. It is is considered by many experts to be the safest and most effective natural laxative available. It works by stimulating and speeding up the large intestine's wavelike peristaltic contractions.

When this happens this allows for bowels to pass through more frequently which results in a softer and quicker bowel movement. The stimulating of these contractions also tones the entire bowel which helps to prevent against future constipation.

Cascara Sagrada's action helps colon health, eliminating bacterial poisons absorbed from the intestinal tract that can contribute to almost every chronic disease. It is an excellent cleanser and toner of the bowel whether taken alone or in conjunction with other herbs.
