For me, sometimes, I just get somewhat plugged up due to too much cheese, or other reasons. Then I reach for the Cascara Barks! And I find that this brand Nature's Answer works fast, effectively, and it is so gentle on my stomach. What I do is to take two about five PM and by the next morning--RELIEF!
Cascara isn’t effective for me. I hoped it would be but it appears once again I need something strong for my lazy colon. Senna works but it does cause cramping because it increases peristalsis. Magnesium citrate works but it’s unpredictable. Mag 0 works but one can get dependent on it. This herb has many other good benefits so I don’t consider this to be a waste of time or money. Nature’s answer makes high quality supplements which I will continue to use.
Great quality, fast reacting effect (really improves the digestion)! My only concern is that one should not take cascara regularly every day several times per day; otherwise, body's natural digestive processes will be affected negatively. But Cascara itself is great as a supplement. Strongly recommend to people of any diet (check the ingredient and nutrition values for allergens though!)!
