In 1992, two people using large doses of chaparral in capsule form developed nonviral hepatitis and three others developed other symptoms of liver toxicity. This led the American Herbal Products Association and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to issue a press release warning of potential risk from use of chaparral and suggesting that sale of chaparral be suspended. After more research, there was found to be no basis for the warning, and sale of chaparral was reinstated in 1995. There are still some precautions to take, nevertheless. Avoid chaparral during pregnancy and also while nursing. Excess use may be detrimental to the liver, kidneys, and lymphs. Discontinue use in case of fever, nausea, or jaundice (such as when the whites of the eyes become yellow).

HOW TO MEASURE OUR TINCTURES:
Suggested doses are given in drops. However, for easy dosing, you may want to use the guidelines below:
Droppers: If a dropper were immersed in a tincture bottle and the bulb squeezed twice, the number of drops in the pipette for most given tinctures will be approximately 30 drops.
Note: These are only averages. More viscous (thicker) tinctures will produce fewer, and bigger, drops.
Teaspoons: There are approximately 120 drops in 1 teaspoon (approximately 4 droppersful).
