How does Tarragon work?

Tarragon is a good source of potassium. It also contains ingredients that work against some bacteria.

Are there safety concerns?

Tarragon seems to be safe when used short-term as a medicine. Long-term use might cause cancer.

Do not use tarragon if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding, in amounts larger than typically found in foods.
  • You have an allergy to ragweed, marigolds, or daisies.

Dosing considerations for Tarragon.

The appropriate dose of tarragon depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for tarragon. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
