Cleanse/Restore the Body
Herbs and Botanicals
Cascara sagrada is in the category of a stimulating laxative. It stimulates contractions in the smooth muscles lining the large intestine. This IC is appropriate for anyone suffering from acute or chronic constipation. As an IC the risk of dependence with long-term use is dramatically reduced. However, those who experience a return of constipation upon stopping this IC should pursue a treatment program that is more comprehensive for gut motility restoration.
