Zi Cao ( External Use Only)

Alternative Name: 紫草

Product Code: HDZ100

Size: 500g / Bag

Lithospermum erythrorhizon Sieb.et Zucc.
Part Used:Root

EXTERNAL USE ONLY

As a result of new analytical techniques we and other members of the British Herbal Medicine Association have recently learnt that this plant is likely to deliver toxic pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) at levels far higher than the maximum recommended by health regulators. PAs have short term toxic effects in very high doses, but our main concern is the risk many years later of damage to the liver and other organs, and so we have taken the responsible decision in the interests of public safety to not supply this plant for internal use.
