Insufficient Evidence to Rate Effectiveness for...
- Digestion problems.
- Intestinal gas (flatulence).
- Wounds, when applied to the skin.
- Other conditions.
Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate (detailed description of each of the ratings).
The appropriate dose of galbanum 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 galbanum. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important.
