How does Kinetin work?

Kinetin prevents green plant leaves from turning brown. There is some information that suggests kinetin might prevent age-related changes in human skin by protecting the DNA in skin cells from damage (antioxidant effects) and decreasing skin water loss.

Are there safety concerns?

There is not enough information available to know if kinetin is safe.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

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

Bleeding disorders: There is some concern that kinetin might prolong bleeding time and increase the risk of bruising and bleeding in some people with bleeding disorders. If you have a bleeding disorder, use kinetin with caution.

Surgery: Kinetin might increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop taking kinetin at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
