Description

A natural tonic that contains eight carefully chosen herbs, each recognized for its distinct medicinal properties, Cascaralax® helps relieve the intestines during occasional bouts of constipation.
This richly textured formula takes its name from Cascara sagrada or sacred bark, as the Spaniards called the herb when they encountered it early in their exploration of the American west, acknowledging its gentle laxative properties. The remaining seven ingredients work delicately with the cascara in harmonious and complementary interaction. By contributing their digestive, gas-relieving, stomach-toning, and antispasmodic therapeutic actions, these herbs greatly enhance the effectiveness of Cascaralax® in terms of the gastrointestinal complaints that are associated with constipation.
