Cascara sagrada is perhaps the safest and most certain laxative available and can be used to restore tone to the colon and thereby overcome laxative dependence in the elderly. The herb is safe and effective for detoxifying and cleansing programs, as opposed to the harsher laxatives, such as senna. Cascara is also an effective liver tonic in small doses : hepatitis, gallstones, etc. Cascara can be used as an effective chelating agent to prevent the occurrence of calcium-based urinary stones.
Cascara sagrada is also used as a cathartic, purgative, cholagogue, and antibacterial agent.
