How does Chirata work?

Chirata contains a chemical that may help reduce swelling (inflammation) and might also fight malaria.

Are there safety concerns?

Chirata is LIKELY SAFE when taken by mouth in the amounts found in beverages. However, there isn't enough information available to know if chirata is safe in larger medicinal amounts.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking chirata if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Diabetes. Chirata might lower blood sugar levels in some people. Watch for signs of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and monitor your blood sugar carefully if you have diabetes and use chirata as a medicine.

Intestinal (duodenal) ulcers: Chirata can make ulcers in the intestine worse.

Surgery. Chirata might lower blood sugar. In theory, chirata might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgical procedures. Stop using chirata as a medicine at least two weeks before a scheduled surgery.
