font size

How does Carqueja work?

Carqueja contains chemicals that might relieve inflammation (swelling) and improve blood flow.

Are there safety concerns?

There isn't enough information to know if carqueja is safe.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

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

Allergy to ragweed, daisies, and related plants: Carqueja may cause an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to the Asteraceae/Compositae plant family. Members of this family include ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, daisies, and many others. If you have allergies, be sure to check with your healthcare provider before taking carqueja.

Diabetes: Carqueja might lower blood sugar levels. Using carqueja along with diabetes medications might make blood sugar levels drop too low. Monitor blood sugar levels closely.

Surgery: Carqueja might affect blood glucose levels. There is some concern that it might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgery. Stop using carqueja at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
