How does Sweet Almond work?

Sweet almond might work as a laxative due to the presence of many fatty acids. When applied to the skin, these same oily ingredients might help chapped skin and irritated mucous membranes.

Are there safety concerns?

There is not enough scientific information available to know if sweet almond is safe to use as medicine.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking sweet almond if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Diabetes: Sweet almond might lower blood sugar in some people. Watch for signs of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and monitor your blood sugar carefully if you have diabetes and use sweet almond.

Surgery: Sweet almond might lower blood sugar in some people. In theory, sweet almond might interfere with blood sugar control during and after surgical procedures. Stop using sweet almond at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
