Cascara Sagrada Decoction


In cases of occasional constipation .


For a cup of Cascara Sagrada decoction, use:

– 2 grams (1-2 teaspoons) of dry Cascara Sagrada *.

– 200 mL of water.

* You can find dry Cascara Sagrada in pharmacies or herbalists.


– Add the water and the cascara-sagrada in a pan.

– Let it boil again for ten minutes.

– Let the mixture rest for two hours.

– Filter.


– Drink a cup of the decoction before each meal.


– The taste of this decoction can be very strong. You can sweeten by adding honey if necessary.

– Like many laxatives, prolonged use of this decoction is not advisable, not longer than a week, unless indicated by the doctor (the components derived from anthracene, which are found in this plant, can be irritating to the gastrointestinal system, with the risk loss of minerals). Talk to your doctor or pharmacist to find the possible cause of constipation if it persists (several weeks).
