How does Phellodendron work?

Chemicals in phellodendron might reduce redness and swelling (inflammation).

Are there safety concerns?

Phellodendron appears to be safe in adults when used short-term. The safety of phellodendron use for more than 6 weeks is unknown. In one study, one person experienced heartburn, shaking hands, sexual dysfunction, and thyroid dysfunction. Another person experience fatigue and headache. But it is not known if these side effects were caused by phellodendron or some other factor.

Phellodendron is UNSAFE in newborn infants.

Do not use phellodendron if:
