Cascara Sagrada – a plant known also as California buckthorn, used in traditional North American medicine. It has been shown to be highly effective in normalising digestive function due to its multiple mechanisms of action on this system.
By stimulating secretory activity of the pancreas, stomach and liver, Cascara Sagrada promotes digestion and thus helps reduce discomfort after a meal. In addition, as a natural source of B vitamins, California buckthorn influences beneficially the metabolism of energy substances.
Supplementation with this herb is recommended for constipation. It increases slightly bowel movements, especially in the end section of the intestines. It has a beneficial impact on the stool’s hydration and condition of the gastrointestinal mucosa.
