Buckthorn, also known as Rhamnus cathartica, is a plant widely recognized for its uses in traditional medicine. The shrub's bark, leaves, and berries contain various beneficial compounds, making it a popular herbal remedy. In traditional medicine practices, buckthorn has been used as a natural laxative due to its cathartic properties. It is believed to promote bowel movements and alleviate constipation. Additionally, the plant has been utilized for its potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Its extracts have been employed to relieve minor skin irritations and promote wound healing. However, it is important to note that while buckthorn has a history of use in traditional medicine, it is always advisable to consult a healthcare professional before using any herbal remedies for medicinal purposes.

Buckthorn is not commonly consumed for its nutritional value. It is primarily utilized for its medicinal properties and as an herb in traditional medicine. As a result, comprehensive nutritional information, such as macronutrient content or vitamin and mineral profiles, specific to buckthorn is not readily available. It is important to note that buckthorn is primarily used for its potential health benefits rather than its nutritional content.
