Cascara Sagrada by Nature's Way.
Cascara Sagrada bark is recommended by Germany’s Commission E as a mild and effective treatment for chronic constipation and is especially useful as a mild laxative for elderly people or for those with fragile health. Cascara Sagrada bark is used for constipation where a stimulant laxative is required. It is also used for colitis, digestive complaints, hemorrhoids, liver problems and jaundice. The bark contains anthraquinones (cascarosides A and B), which are transformed by intestinal bacteria into substances that increase peristalsis in the large intestine and help restore its tone. The bark is rich in hormone like oils that promote peristaltic action (contractions) in the intestinal canal and is considered excellent for cleaning and detoxifying programs. It is also used as a colon cleanser and for eliminating parasitic infestation.
