Nutrabasics - Cascara Sagrada


Cascara Sagrada helps maintain the healthy functioning of the intestinal tract. It is obtained from the Rhamnus pursiana tree’s bark, which in turn must be carefully processed. Once the bark is selected, it is cut into small pieces that are left to dry for about a year in order to remove any rhamnus toxin in the bark. Drasanvi guarantees the total absence of this substance.

The use of dry extract

We use dry plant extract instead of powdered plant extract in our cascara sagrada capsules. This allows us to concentrate the product, giving exactly the same results just using less of it. For this product we have chosen cascara sagrada extract with a ratio of 8:1, which means that we have used 10000 mg of the plant to obtain 250 mg of the extract. “Dry extract” refers to a specific extraction process, during which the active ingredients are retained, while the impurities and other substances that are not needed are removed. The use of plant extracts has a number of advantages over vegetable-based and powdered forms:

  1. It is possible to measure the exact amount of active ingredients (standardised extracts)
  2. Products based on plant extract are more concentrated than those made from powdered form (a concentrated dose is easy to take)
  3. The assimilation of the active ingredients alone is easier than the assimilation of all of the compounds of the plant because there are impurities and fibres present in the powder.

Standardised extracts

Another important advantage of our product is the use of standardised extract, i.e. the provision of active plant ingredients remains constant over time. In the case of cascara sagrada, this extract is cascaroside A and it provides you with 25 mg per daily dose.

Concentrated dose, easy to take

The use of concentrated dry extract and active ingredients allows us to provide the same dose in just one capsule.

Vegetable-based capsules

The capsules we use are vegetable-based, made from hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, and have been certified by the Vegetarian Society. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is obtained from the cellulose found in various plant structures.

Free from allergens

We have ensured that our cascara sagrada capsules have not come into contact with the most common allergens, in particular with gluten.

Blister packs

Our cascara sagrada capsules come in blister packs: they protect the contents from any knocks as well as from environmental factors, ensuring that the product remains intact for as long as possible. This type of packaging is the best for protection against humidity and microbial contamination.
