Cascara is a a botanical stimulant laxative and works by increasing muscle contractions in the intestines, which helps move stool through the bowels to produce a bowel movement. Researchers believe its ability to act as a laxative is due to its content of anthraquinone glycosides. Other studies on Cascara have revealed that it may have possible anticancer abilities. In one study, researchers looked at a component of cascara called aloe-emodin. The results showed that aloe-emodin was able to inhibit cancer cells from proliferating and helped kill the cancer cells. Although research shows that cascara might have anticancer abilities, more clinical human studies are needed. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12175703
