Organic Cascara Sagrada Natural Laxative

Constipation Relief Cascara Sagrada Bark Natural Organic Laxative

Cascara Sagrada (Rhamnus purshiana) contains compounds called anthraquinones that produce a gentle, natural laxative acting on the large intestines helping with constipation and to soften stools. The anthraquinones contained in the bark inhibit the absorption of water and electrolytes in the intestines. Because of this, stool volume increases as it absorbs the excess water, which increases pressure within the intestine. This stimulates muscle contractions in the colon, speeding the clearance of the bowel. This is intended to use for short periods of time and not for long term use.

  • Improving digestive health: helps relieve constipation, bloating, gas, and indigestion by increasing the secretion of bile and digestive enzymes. It may also support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut and prevent the overgrowth of harmful ones.
  • Enhancing liver function: protects the liver from damage caused by toxins, drugs, or alcohol by stimulating its detoxification and regeneration processes. It may also help dissolve and expel gallstones by increasing the flow of bile.
  • Supporting skin health: improves the appearance and health of the skin by reducing inflammation, promoting wound healing, and fighting infections. It may also help prevent or treat skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.
  • Aiding in weight loss: may help reduce body weight and fat by increasing the metabolism, suppressing the appetite, and enhancing the elimination of waste and toxins. However, this effect may be temporary and not sustainable, and it may also cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalance if used excessively.

The effects are not apparent for at least 6 to 10 hours. Start with a 1/2 a cup of tea before bed to allow the herbs to work overnight. If you need to increase the dosage drink 1 cup of tea before bed.

Directions: Add a sachet or use 1 1/2 teaspoons of Cascara Sagrada in a steeper to 4 ounces of boiling water. Cover and steep the tea all day until you drink it at bedtime. This is a very bitter herb and a sweetener is recommended.

To prevent cramping add 1 1/2 teaspoons of Lemon Balm and or fennel to the steeper when making your tea. Lemon Balm and Fennel have spasmolytic (anti-spasm) and carminative (anti-gas) properties.

We offer 1 and 2 ounces of organic Cascara Sagrada Bark loose or a 7 and 14 day sachet with Cascara Sagrada Bark, Lemon Balm and Fennel. Comes in an eco-friendly Kraft pouch.
