  • Patients on anticoagulant drugs, such as Coumadin (warfarin), should not fluctuate their daily consumption of vitamin K, which is found in alfalfa, cauliflower, liver, and in all dark green vegetables including broccoli and spinach.

  • This formula is contraindicated during pregnancy and nursing. It should be used with caution during menstruation as it may cause excessive bleeding. In such cases, discontinue use immediately and resume after menstruation is over.

  • This formula should be discontinued one to two weeks before surgery.
