Buckthorn Bark

Buckthorn Bark is harvested from alder buckthorn, a small European tree now naturalized in North America. Because the bark contains high levels of phenolic compounds it must be dried for a year before use, although ingestion of buckthorn tea or tincture can be toxic in large amounts.

Flavor Profile: Mild, woody

Caffeine: 0mg/8oz. cup

Ingredients: Buckthorn Bark

Health Benefits: Buckthorn bark has been reported to treat digestive problems, especially constipation and hemorrhoids. The bark is also beneficial to the colon as it contains anthraquinone, which helps eliminate impacted fecal matter while treating spontaneous bowel movements.

Caution: Do not use if pregnant or if there is a history of Crohn's disease. Please consult with your health professional before usage.
