Cascara sagrada, scientifically known as Rhamnus purshiana, is a deciduous tree native to North America. It has a long history of traditional use as a natural laxative. The bark of the cascara sagrada tree contains active compounds called anthraquinone glycosides, specifically cascarosides A, B, C, and D, which are responsible for its laxative effects. These compounds stimulate the muscles of the colon, promoting bowel movements and relieving occasional constipation.
Сascara sagrada played a significant role in the development of modern laxatives. In the late 19th century, an American physician named Dr. Frederick Templeton developed a widely popular laxative known as "Dr. Templeton's Extract of Cascara Sagrada." This marked the beginning of cascara sagrada's commercialization as a medicinal product.

I grew up in Mexico and used cascara sagrada in my home for all kinds of different stomach remedies. I am glad to have this in liquid form and readily available.
