Comments about NOW Foods Cascara Sagrada, 450mg, Capsules, 100 ea:
I've been taking 3 pills a day now for a few weeks after having chronic constipation for years. I think that it has helped to make my stools less hard and easier to pass on most days. I still have some days where my stools are still hard but I'll continue to take this since it works most of the time. While taking it I've had some mild stomach cramping and lots more gas but it hasn't been that uncomfortable. I would recommend this to anyone who has trouble with constipation in the past and hasn't had any luck with stool softners helping the problem.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules 1 to 2 times daily, with water or juice on an empty stomach. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW® Psyllium Husk and Aloe Vera.
Store in a cool, dry place.
