Cascara Sagrada Tincture
Organic Cascara, has long used in herbal medicine to clean the intestinal tract and has a strong purgative effect on the body. While it has a long standing history, use with caution in small amounts. Over consumption of Cascara can lead to a day of the "quick step" to the bathroom. Also, continued use over a prolonged time can have an adverse effect on the colon, and always check with your practitioner if you have prolonged discomfort. However, occasional use can prove beneficial for cleaning the bowel and impactions. Much can be said for herbal medicine, and that is true with Cascara Sagrada, but use in moderation.
Cascara is a popular herbal medication and over-the-counter therapy of constipation. Cascara is generally safe and well tolerated, but can cause adverse events including clinically apparent liver injury when used in high doses for longer than recommended periods.
We recommend use of this herb for only short intervals. Long term use can place stress on the liver and kidneys, however for occasional constipation it has proven effective.
