industrialVervain compounds are used in the food, fragrance and pharmaceutical industries.
safetyVervain is safe for most people. However, you should avoid this herb if you have chronic anemia or iron deficiency since frequent consumption can significantly inhibit iron absorption. The plant’s vitamin K content may interfere with blood-thinning medications, such as warfarin. Pregnant women should avoid vervain due to the potential for bone ossification in a developing fetus. It is not known at this time if vervain compounds enter breast milk, but nursing mothers should err on the side of caution and not ingest the herb.
