Cascara Sagrada Bark
En some conventional physicians recommend cascara sagrada to patients suffering constipation after surgery for hemorrhoids.
The 1, 8-dihydroxy-anthracenes in cascara sagrada act on the nerves in the intestinal tract, numbing the nerves that hold back stool and stimulating the nerves that propel stool downward. If you experience cramping, you've probably used too much.
For occasional use only as it is a bulk forming laxative and should be taken with sufficient fluids. You should not use Cascara Sagrada or any other laxative if you have appendicitis, Crohn's disease, or ulcerative colitis. Not recommended for children under 12. Unlike buckthorn, cascara sagrada is not known to be safe for pregnant women and nursing mothers.
