Does Banjo have any side effects?

Everything has side effects.

Drinking too much water will kill you, so will breathing pure oxygen for an extended period. Everything has side effects and too much of anything can be harmful.

That’s one reason we don’t recommend using more Banjo than you need – because at some point you’re bound to start experiencing negative side effects – from anything (the other reason is financial – why purchase more and use more than you need to relieve and control symptoms?)

General safety and side effects of ingredients – a ‘common sense’ approach.

Banjo does not contain any ‘unusual’ ingredients. Each of the herbs used to make Banjo has a very long history of use by a very large number of people. In fact most of the herbal ingredients in Banjo have been used for thousands of years by millions of people. This is by design  (we deliberately choose to use only those herbs with a long track record of safe use.)

Most of the herbal ingredients in Banjo are recognized as a common food or a common spice.

Generally recognized as or commonly used as food:

Neither food nor spice – but a long history of safe use:

  • Milk thistle

Each of the herbs in Banjo has a long history of safe use.

If any of the herbs used in Banjo were ‘dangerous’, it’s likely that danger would have turned up by now. Of course it’s possible, however unlikely, that one or more of the herbal ingredients presents some yet unrecognized risk. it’s also possible that the unique combination of ingredients results in greater risk or the appearance of heretofore unknown side effects (see below.) It’s also possible that the unique delivery method (as a lozenge) creates additional risk or results in new side effects (see below.)

Nonetheless, it would seem that the greatest risks and most likely side effects would be the risks and side effects of the individual ingredients. You are encouraged to investigate the safety of each individual ingredient. An abundance of information on each ingredient is readily available on the Internet.
