How is it used?

Historically, alder buckthorn has predominantly been used to treat constipation. It’s thought that the compound anthraquinone, which makes up between 3 and 7% of the plant’s content, has a laxative effect.

The plant can be used for non-medical purposes too, namely in the production of dye and charcoal for use in gunpowder.
