Well Aged Cascara

$95
- 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.

Well Aged Cascara was traditionally used by American Indians as a laxative, however, it is unlike other “laxatives” in that it energises the smooth muscles of the small intestine and bowel to contract, rather than irritating them. 

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.  Source

Emodin also inhibits the formation of nitric oxide (mitochondrial poison) and prevents the reabsorption of endotoxin; extremely important for the promotion of clear and youthful skin.

Serving suggestion:
Start with a scant 1/8tsp (310mg), dissolved in some hot water. Allow to cool slightly or add a dash of cold.  It’s best to have some milk or other food in the stomach when it’s taken.  If no improvement to bowel motions the next day at this dose, increase gradually to 1/4tsp (620mg) at once or split in 2 doses through day.  If bowel motions become too loose, discontinue for a day or two, and take a lesser dose thereafter when needed.

*Note: scoop not included.
