Insufficient Evidence to Rate Effectiveness for...

  • Wrinkled skin. Early research suggests that applying a cream containing 5% date palm seed extract around the eyes for 5 weeks reduces the depth and improves the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Coughs.
  • Breathing problems.
  • Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of date palm for these uses.

Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate (detailed description of each of the ratings).
