How does Swallowroot work?

Early research suggests swallowroot might act like an antioxidant and might also be able to fight bacteria.

Are there safety concerns?

There isn't enough information to know if swallowroot is safe or what the possible side effects might be.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

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

Surgery: Since swallowroot might slow blood clotting, there is a concern that it might increase the chance of extra bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using swallowroot at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
