I've been plagued by digestive issues for several years. Things have gotten particularly worse the past few years. I've been lucky if I have even one partial elimination a week. I say lucky because sometimes I can go several weeks without any elimination. Nothing over the counter has worked, laxatives, suppositories, senna, etc. My doctor is puzzled and I've been put through every test, even a colonoscopy. Nothing. I read about Cascara Sagrada on a blog and thought I would give it a try. From the first dose (2 capsules at nighttime), I've been regular -daily. This works for me, so I'm not straying from it. It's been three weeks and all is finally well with me. A few times, I've had mild cramping the following afternoon. It's very good quality mild, and occurs just prior to a bowel movement. If I take this supplement at bedtime, I have a bowel movement the following afternoon.It have good ingredient.
Trying this for the very first time to help with constipation. I chose this one because Solaray states the cascara has been aged for at least a year, which is extremely important if you want to take cascara sagrada. It has magnesium stearate unfortunately but no other fillers. Start with just one capsule and take with plenty of water. Wait 24 hours to see results before increasing dosage.
These are my go to supplement to aid when ever I become sluggish. I generally take two without even the slightest of discomfort or any v adverse effects. It is well tolerated by my body. Quality and reliable product to help you get things moving along without any cramping.
