Greater Celandine

How does Greater Celandine work?

The chemicals in greater celandine might slow the growth of cancer cells, but might also be harmful to normal cells. Preliminary research suggests greater celandine might increase the flow of bile. Greater celandine might also have some pain-relieving properties.

Are there safety concerns?

Greater celandine might not be safe when taken by mouth. It can cause serious liver problems. When applied to the skin, greater celandine can cause allergic skin rash.

Do not take greater celandine if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have liver problems, including hepatitis.
  • You have a blockage of your bile duct (bile duct obstruction).
