Benefits of Cascara Sagrada
• Promotes Digestive Health
Cascara sagrada promotes gentle yet effective laxative effects that may support individuals who suffer from a sluggish digestive system. The digestive system's function in the body is to turn food and drink consumed into nutrients used for energy. Often, due to poor diet, the proper function of organs such as the large intestine is disrupted, which may cause several digestive issues.
• Promotes Colon Health & Toxin Removal
The colon works around the clock to remove waste from the body. Cascara sagrada has traditionally been used to promote natural laxative effects to help flush and restore the large intestine. It works by irritating the colon enough to promote a bowel movement. Cascara sagrada promotes the elimination of any unwanted toxins left behind in the colon. Colon health is vital in the digestive process as it is responsible for the absorption of water and changes waste into stool preparing it for a bowel movement.
• Promotes Gallbladder Health
The gallbladder sits under the liver and stores bile produced by the liver. Cascara sagrada is believed by many to support the protection of the gallbladder against stones.
• Supports Bowel Regularity
Constipation is commonly experienced at some point in a person’s life. It can be caused by lifestyle, lack of fiber, and even stress. Cascara sagrada is considered a stimulant laxative. Anthraquinones, found in cascara sagrada, slow down the absorption of water in the intestines. Stool volume then increases as it absorbs excess water, which increases pressure within the intestine. This promotes muscle contractions in the colon, speeding bowel movements.
• Supports Weight Loss in the Abdominal Area
“Belly fat” is quite difficult to target when trying to get rid of it. Along with adequate diet and exercise, cascara sagrada offers additional support in returning the colon to its normal state by getting rid of potential waste attached to the inner lining of the colon that causes it to expand.
