How does Bogbean work?

Bogbean contains bitter chemicals that can increase the flow of saliva and stomach juices. This might help stimulate the appetite or relieve indigestion.

Are there safety concerns?

Bogbean might be safe for most people when used in medicinal amounts. It might not be safe in large quantities. Bogbean can irritate the stomach and intestines and cause diarrhea, pain, nausea, and vomiting.

Do not take bogbean if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You are at risk for bleeding.
  • You have stomach or intestinal problems such as diarrhea, colitis, or Crohn's disease.
  • You are scheduled for surgery in the next two weeks. Bogbean might increase the risk of bleeding.
