Cascara Sagrada 450 mg 60 Capsules from Thompson® may help as a laxative during constipation. Native American used the bark of Cascara Sagrada (rhamnus purshiana) as a laxative herb. Cascara Sagrada contains compounds called anthroquinones. It is believed that this compound may be the reason for Cascara Sagrada’s laxative properties. Many people believe that these anthroquinones may produce contractions in the colon that leads to the urge for a bowel movement and may have a laxative effect.
Bad food habits‚ irregular lifestyles and not including fresh fruits and vegetables in the daily diet may lead to constipation. Other effects of constipation are swollen blood vessels that may lead to hemorrhoids. By including fiber-rich foods in our diet we may avoid constipation‚ but many a times we fail to do so because of our busy schedules. This is when we could take the assistance of herbal dietary supplements such as this one from Thompson®.
There are modern studies which believe that Cascara Sagrada may help cleanse the colon. This mild laxative is believed to help older adults too. The compounds present in this herbal extract have the ability to produce wave like contractions in the large intestine and may help speed up the process of peristalsis‚ giving the body less chances of absorbing the fluids from stools. By getting the body to produce faster and softer bowel movement‚ you may have less chances of developing hemorrhoids.
Use Cascara Sagrada 450 mg 60 Capsules from Thompson® and support against constipation.

Good when you need it!
