Buckthorn Bark (Rhamnus Frangula) extract benefits include easing constipation, having a strong purgative, laxative effect on the body.
Buckthorn Bark is also used to cleanse the colon in preparation for gastrointestinal diagnostic procedures. Its diuretic properties help cleanse the blood and in turn, help with rheumatism, liver and gallbladder problems.
