How It Works:
Cascara sagrada, or sacred bark, is one of Nature’s Sunshine’s most popular herbal products and perhaps the most famous herbal laxative. Spanish missionaries noticed its use among Natives and named it the word "sacred" in Spanish. It was first marketed in 1877, and was later acknowledged and used by the medical profession. Cascara Sagrada works by stimulating the lining of the upper intestines to promote normal bowel function.
