Chinese Cucumber

How does Chinese Cucumber work?

Chinese cucumber ROOT contains a chemical that might cause abortions when injected during the first trimester of pregnancy. Chinese cucumber SEED might help decrease pain and swelling (inflammation). The FRUIT might also help protect against stomach ulcers.

Are there safety concerns?

Chinese cucumber ROOT is UNSAFE. Chinese cucumber root injections can cause severe side effects, including allergic reactions, seizures, fever, fluid build-up in the lungs and brain, bleeding in the brain, heart damage, and death.

Chinese cucumber FRUIT and SEED seem to be safe for most people. They can cause some mild side effects such as diarrhea and upset stomach.

Do not use Chinese cucumber if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have diabetes.
  • You are scheduled for surgery in the next two weeks.
