Product Description

Nature's Sunshine Cascara Sagrada 100 Capsules 400mg

Cascara Sagrada contains anthraquinone glycosides. These glycosides are not absorbed in the gut, but form pharmacologically active metabolites once in contact with intestinal bacteria. These metabolites are partially absorbed in the colon which stimulates peristalsis and normal healthy evacuation of the bowel. This herb is recommended for occasional constipation. Cascara should not be taken by those with digestive or bowel conditions when pain, nausea and vomiting are present.

The aged, dried bark of Cascara sagrada, also known as 'sacred bark' was traditionally used by the North American Indians as a laxative and is now one of the most popular herbal laxatives used today. Cascara sagrada influences intestinal contraction and supports a clean healthy colon. This product generally produces bowel movement in 6-12 hours. It is important to drink plenty of water and increase fibre in the diet
