When to Not Use Cramp Bark Plus: Safety and Cautions
Do not use during pregnancy.
Cramp Bark Plus is a newly created supplement combining traditional Chinese herbs with non-traditional substances. In the context of TCM, and its immense history of use, any combination in use for less than 100 years, should be considered experimental.
Note that cramp bark should not be confused with black haw (Vibernum prunifolium), which is sometimes referred to as cramp bark, but may not share the same properties.
Formulas are intended for health care professionals or for those knowledgeable of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
TCM is powerful and reliable, but it can be complex. Self-diagnosis and self-treatment aren't usually recommended. Best to Find A Nearby Practitioner, or begin an e-mail/phone consultation at Online-Herbal-Consultation
