Are bay leaf supplements safe for pregnant or nursing women?

A Answers (1)

  • Use cautiously in pregnant or breastfeeding women due to lack of available scientific evidence. Bay leaf has been used historically to induce abortion. In Italian folk medicine, bay leaf has been used to promote the flow of breast milk.
