How does Iceland Moss work?

Iceland moss seems to have a soothing action. It might also reduce the growth of bacteria.

Are there safety concerns?

Iceland moss seems safe for most people when taken short-term. It is UNSAFE when used in large amounts, because the dried plant can be contaminated with lead.

Iceland moss is regulated in the United States, and is allowed only as a flavoring agent in alcoholic beverages.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: It might be UNSAFE to take Iceland moss during pregnancy. The concern is that Iceland moss can become contaminated with lead, and this can be harmful to the mother and unborn child.

Ulcers in the stomach or small intestine: Iceland moss can irritate the lining of the digestive tract. Don't take it if you have stomach or intestinal ulcers.
