**Adverse effects are rare with extracts of properly prepared He Shou Wu. Potential adverse effects of this herb are mainly digestive, resulting in loose stool in cases where the herb is not tolerated, and occasional light abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Raw, unprepared He Shou Wu is a laxative and should NOT be consumed as a tonic herb, i.e. on a long term basis. Some companies selling He Shou Wu products are unaware of this issue and sell unprepared He Shou Wu, resulting in adverse effects.

Raw, un–prepared He Shou Wu is used as a laxative in Chinese herbalism, and is NOT used in tonic herbalism.
