Cascara sagrada powder comes from the bark of this deciduous shrub, which must be aged at least one year before use (ours is). The powder is a wonderful laxative, useful for chronic or acute constipation, depending on the dosage, because it both softens the stool and stimulates the smooth muscles in the colon.
