European Chestnut

How does European Chestnut work?

European chestnut contains chemicals called tannins that might help reduce skin swelling (inflammation) and have a drying (astringent) effect on the tissues.

Are there safety concerns?

European chestnut seems safe for most adults when taken by mouth. There isn't enough information to know whether it can be safely applied to the skin as a medicine.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of European chestnut during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
