The Story

Oregon Grape: Mahonia aquifolium (Pursh) Nutt.

Why Oregon Grape? Oregon grape is a perennial plant native to the northern coasts of North America, and of course, our home state of Oregon! Oregon grape can grow up to six feet high and resembles holly with its bluish-purple clusters of berries. There is evidence to suggest Oregon grape can support healthy, normal liver function and possibly reduce oxidative stress.

Quality Assured: Our Oregon grape is sustainably wildcrafted in the U.S.A. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for use.

How to Use

Benefits: Oregon grape is often used in uniquely flavored brandies, wines, and even jellies and jams. This herb can be taken as a tea, tincture, or decoction. Oregon grape can offer support to the liver in healthy adults and possibly reduce oxidative stress.

Cautions and Contraindications: Herbs with berberine (a constituent in Oregon grape) may cause kernicterus (a form of brain damage caused by jaundice), and Oregon grape should not be used while pregnant or breastfeeding. Topically, Oregon grape may cause itching, burning, skin irritation, and allergic reactions.

The American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) cautions: Keep out of reach of children. Consult a practitioner prior to use. Herbs should always be used with care. Not to be used during pregnancy or nursing. Not recommended for infants or toddlers, or for extended periods of time.
