How does Lovage work?

The chemicals in lovage might increase water loss through urination, decrease spasms, and help fight infections.

Are there safety concerns?

Lovage is possibly safe for most people. It might increase sensitivity to the sun, especially with long-term use. This might put you at greater risk for rashes from the sun, sunburns, and skin cancer. Wear sunblock and protective clothing outside, especially if you are light-skinned.

Do not take lovage if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have high blood pressure.
  • You have kidney problems.
  • You have heart problems.
