Well Aged Cascara
75g loose powder
Italian Cascara Sagrada (Rhamnus Purshiana) U.S.P. sourced from Farmalabor; best quality available. Well aged: Cascara not properly aged is irritating and lacks key benefits.
Naturally rich in Emodin: the active ingredient in Cascara.
Slowed bowel transit time leads to increased estrogen levels, accelerated ageing, and is detrimental to overall health. High-quality Cascara (along with anti-septic, indigestible fiber such as raw carrot, bamboo shoots or well-cooked mushrooms) helps to improve bowel transit time and encourage complete and regular emptying of the bowels.
This is not the only benefit of Cascara; Emodin, the active ingredient, has been demonstrated to possess multiple biological activities including being antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral. It is also a potent selective 11β-HSD1 inhibitor, the enzyme responsible for the synthesis of cortisol, which is closely associated with the development of metabolic disorders including insulin resistance, central obesity and hyperglycaemia.
