Yin Chen

How does Yin Chen work?

Yin chen is thought to contain chemicals which stimulate bile flow which can help to treat gallstones. The oils in yin chen might also reduce fever, decreases swelling, increase urination, and kill fungus and bacteria.

Are there safety concerns?

Yin chen seems safe for most adults when taken by mouth.

Yin chen can cause nausea, bloating, dizziness, and heart problems. Allergic reactions have occurred in people who are allergic to other plants and herbs in the Asteraceae/Compositae family. Members of this family include daisies, ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, and many other herbs.

Don't attempt to treat liver or gallstone problems without medical advice.

Don't give yin chen to children under 12 years of age.

Do not use yin chen if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You are allergic to plants such as ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, or daisies.
