How does Tansy work?

The chemicals in tansy increase saliva and blood flow to the tissues in the mouth, stomach, intestines, and pelvic area. Some researches think the chemicals may also have effects on the brain. Tansy extracts may decrease pain, increase bile production, and increase appetite in people with liver and gallbladder problems.

Are there safety concerns?

Tansy is UNSAFE when taken by mouth or applied on the skin.

Tansy can cause restlessness, vomiting, severe diarrhea, stomach pain, dizziness, tremors, kidney or liver damage, bleeding, abortions in pregnant women, seizures, and death. Applying tansy to the skin can cause a severe skin reaction.

Do not take tansy if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
