Help please! Could chinese skullcap root extract give you gas?

I'm taking snooze-in from the vitamin shoppe. It has 100mg valeria, 75mg scullcap, 75mg hops, 3mg. Melatonin, 75mg. Is this this safe?

Yes: This product is very safe. This will help many people but not everyone. If it does not help consider other natural sleep aids like 5-hydroxtryptophan, glycine, california poppy and magnolia bark. These (and what you are taking) are all much safer than prescription sleeping pills. See http://www. Mindbodygreen. Com/0-5104/herbs-for-insomnia. Html. ...Read more

Hello! I would like to ask if a Chinese scullcap herb could help me to prevent my beard growing? I am a transgender and I am new in all this!!!

Beware...: If there is an herb or supplement that advertises to grow a beard or remove a beard, it would be wise to stay clear of it. If an herb, skullcap or otherwise, could really mess with one's endocrine system and drastically alter bodily hormones to change hair growth patterns, just imagine what damage it could to all other body parts. ...Read more
