How to Use
Benefits: Mandrake root should not be ingested. Because there is not adequate scientific substantive research as defined by the FDA we are unable to provide any guidance on how to use this herb. We suggest you do your own research.
Cautions and Contraindications:
Mandrake has a very low therapeutic margin. Never use more than the stated amount. Mandrake root should not be consumed internally without the advice of a trusted herbal medicine practitioner or natural health practitioner. Do not use in excess. Do not use with children.
Since mandrake has a low therapeutic margin, we suggest consulting with a Registered Herbalist or Holistic Health Practitioner before use.
