This herb is slightly toxic or toxic.  Like all things in life, Chinese herbal medicine is far from perfect, and it’s important for consumers to understand that although they are few in number, there are some ingredients that are part of the Chinese herbal pharmacopoeia that are considered toxic.  Normally, when toxic or slightly toxic ingredients are used (in a formula) an antidotal ingredient is always added as part of the prescription in order to mitigate the toxicity of the ingredient in question.  Therefore, we recommend this herb be used under the guidance of a traditional Chinese medicinal professional.
