Cascara Sagrada Tincture is a single-herb liquid extract traditionally used as a laxative. People use cascara for constipation, emptying the colon before a colonoscopy, and other conditions. Add it to our Tummy Tea or tincture to help with constipation.
Cascara Sagrada is classed as a stimulant laxative – it is rich in phytochemicals known as anthraquinones which react with bacteria in the intestines to stimulate the bowels. It causes muscle contractions in the intestines which enables stools to move more smoothly through the bowels to trigger the onset of a bowel movement. This herb will usually stimulate a bowel movement within six to eight hours of consumption.
