Buckthorn General Information
Buckthorn is a shrub or small tree that grows up to 25 feet tall. The branches have tipped with sharp spines. Clusters of greenish flowers (May-June) produce berrylike fruits that contain three or four seeds and turn black when ripe. The name cathartica suggests it has cathartic or laxative properties. The berries are the part that has those properties and have been used for constipation since the 13th century; however, by the 19th century, its purgative action was thought to be so severe the use of it was discarded. It was said that Buckthorn was a medicine more fit for animals than human beings. Today many veterinarians use it as a purgative for dogs.

Buckthorn Uses & Scientific Evidence For

Buckthorn Dosage Information
Buckthorn comes in various forms and can be an ingredient in many products. To use an infusion, take 1 cup of boiling water to 2 teaspoonfuls of fruit. Drink in the morning or evening as it takes about 12 hours to be effective. You can also just chew about 10 seeds in the morning to produce the same results. As a tincture, take 1-2ml at night and in the morning. For other formulations, read and follow product label directions.

Buckthorn Safety & Interaction Information
Exceeding the recommended dose of Buckthorn can cause extreme diarrhea and vomiting. People who have an intestinal obstruction, Crohn’s disease, or colitis should not take Buckthorn. Those who are pregnant or breast-feeding and children under the age of 12 should not use Buckthorn without the advice of a physician. Buckthorn may also turn the urine dark yellow or red, but this is harmless. Using Buckthorn for more than 10 days consecutively may cause a loss of electrolytes, or can weaken the colon, and long-term use can cause kidney disease. Overuse can also cause a potassium deficiency that can affect heartbeat-regulating drugs.
