A wormwood complex is an herbal supplement that is made from a blend of wormwood and products from other herbs such as black walnut and clove. Wormwood complex might also include stemona root. Some herbalists and herbal supplement manufacturers assert that a wormwood complex can help people to improve the health of their digestive system. For example, some wormwood complexes are indicated for improving digestion, cleansing the intestines, and improving the function of the bowels.
It is important to speak to a medical professional before taking this or any other kind of herbal supplement. There are some herbal blends including wormwood that are labeled as being unsafe or otherwise inappropriate for use by women who are pregnant or nursing. Furthermore, this supplement should not be taken in order to replace medical attention. People suffering from problems related to the bowels or gastrointestinal tract should not use wormwood complex instead of seeing a doctor.
Wormwood complex is often taken with meals multiple times per day. It is sometimes indicated for use over a certain period of time, such as a span of one or two weeks, before the user should take a break for a similar duration of time. The complex is sometimes packaged in the form of a pill while other times it is prepared as a liquid. The indications for ingesting wormwood complex will vary depending on the way that it is prepared and packaged.
When wormwood complex comes in the form of a liquid it may or may not include alcohol. For people who cannot or should not consume alcohol, it is important to either consume the complex in the form of capsules or to make sure to find a version of the liquid complex that is made without alcohol. Companies that sell liquid wormwood complex sometimes sell two versions: one that includes alcohol in the formula and one that does not.
Although wormwood complex is not as common as other kinds of supplement complexes, such as a vitamin B complex, it can be found at a number of health food stores, stores that specialize in vitamins and dietary supplements, and via online retailers. Online retailers are also a good source for liquid wormwood complex that is formulated without alcohol. Online retailers also often include detailed information about all of the ingredients, the indications and contraindications of the product, and a list of products that are also useful for issues related to the bowels and gastrointestinal tract.
