Cascara Sagrada - Nature’s Laxative.
Organika®’s Cascara Sagrada Vegetarian Capsules contains 500 mg of dried bark from the Cascara Sagrada (Frangula purshiana DC) plant. Traditionally used as a laxative, Cascara Sagrada is a member of the buckthorn plant family and is native to the western coast of North America.
The medicinal benefits are derived from the bark of this potent plant. Cascara Sagrada is known to consist of the substance emodin, a constituent with laxative effects. The bark also contains a type of anthraquinones called cascarosides A and B, which may interact with the bacteria in the large intestine to form substances that promote bowel movement.
