Ray Peat on Emodin which is one of the main ingredients of Cascara:

Origins of Cascara:
Cascara Sagrada is Spanish for “sacred bark” and was used for centuries by Native Americans.  Cascara
contains compounds called anthraquinones. Cascara is an extract from the dried, aged bark of Rhamnus Purshiana,

a species of buckthorn tree or shrub native to North America.  When the Spanish conquerors came along, they
were introduced to Cascara Sagrada and gave it one of its common names – “Sacred bark” because of its incredible effectiveness.
