Also known by its official name of rhamnus purshiana, the plant is often found in moist forests below 5,000 feet. The cascara sagrada herb is harvested in the form of quills and pieces of bark. Cascara sagrada is not meant to be used fresh and must typically be aged for at least 1 year before use in laxative preparations. This is so that its active anthrone chemicals should be broken down.
Cascara Sagrada Tea is known as a potent laxative. The active constituents in cascara sagrada are known to act on the nerves in the intestinal tract, numbing the nerves that hold back stool, and then stimulating the nerves that propel stool downward.
Cascara sagrada is quite bitter in taste so a lot of people with constipation opt to take it in the form of capsules or extracts.
Cascara Sagrada is not recommended for people suffering from appendicitis, Crohn's disease, or ulcerative colitis. It is also not recommended for children under the age of 12, as well as for pregnant women and nursing mothers.
