Taking herbs in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Cascara Sagrada Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken when required.

Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

Do not take for more than 7 days at a time - may cause dehydration and loss of electrolytes.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

After careful harvesting, selection and cleaning the Cascara Sagrada bark used to make this tincture undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

Cascara Sagrada, Alcohol, Water

Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Do not take for more than 7 days at a time - may cause dehydration and loss of electrolytes.

Do not use if you have ulcerative colitis, Crohns, appendicitis or other gastrointestinal disorders.

When I was a teenager if we suffered from constipation my father gave us what he called "forked-lighting pills". They literally struck you down on the spot. That was cascara. I have never come across anything as effective for constipation but they were taken off the market and for a long time, I couldn't even find a reference for cascara. Then I found Indigo's Cascara Sagrada Bark Tincture. Brilliant, I thought, until I read the recommendations. It is so weak I need to take nearly the whole bottle to get any effect. That is an exaggeration, but it does work out to be very expensive to get the effect I was used to with the old cascara. Still, it is still more effective than senna.
