Rhamnus purshiana, better known as a sacred shell or can be called a sacred bark, chitten bark and hawthorn, is an American plant native to the Oregon region of the United States. Well known for its cleansing properties, it is often used throughout the world as a laxative, being famous in the fight against intestinal constipation.

It is also very effective in cleaning the colon, its application is guaranteed for years and years of experiences of the native populations in their proper places of origin. But what makes the sacred shell a particular and special plant is that it does not let the body get used to it.
