Health Notes

Cascara

Cascara
Common names:
Sacred Bark
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Used for AmountWhy
Constipation
20 to 30 mg of cascarosides per day for no more than ten days3 stars[3 stars]
Cascara is considered a stimulant laxative because it stimulates bowel muscle contractions. Cascara has a milder action compared to other stimulant herbs.

Parts Used & Where Grown

Cascara is a small to medium-size tree native to the provinces and states of the Pacific coast, including British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and northern California. The bark of the tree is removed, cut into small pieces, and dried for one year before being used medicinally. Fresh cascara bark has an emetic or vomit-inducing property and therefore is not used.

      Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Whole Herb Cascara Sagrada:

      I use this supplement about 3 times a week as needed. I am normally on the constipated side, and 2 years ago had gastric bypass surgery, which caused nearly always constipation. I had been taking fiber, and stool softeners, which barely worked. I would have to take a dose of milk of magnesia 2 - 3 times a week to keep from getting fully constipated. Now since starting Cascara Sagrada, my constipation is nearly gone. I take 1 capsule in the morning and then another just before dinner time. I do this maybe 3 times a week, and sometimes that is too often. I feel that if I tried just 1 a day, it would probably be too much, so I am happy doing this way. I will be sticking to using this from now on! Goodbye nasty tasting Milk of Magnesia!!
