The dried and aged bark of cascara sagrada has been used for centuries to support healthy bowel activity. When used properly, it may help achieve regularity. Traditionally, cascara has only been used for short periods of time. Whether or not cascara is habit-forming has no substantial support from studies. Due to the limited evidence in the scientific literature, our product use recommendations reflect the traditional use of cascara sagrada and we recommend that it only be used for short periods.
