in the Egyptian tombs, so it is alright to use this quassia?
Quassia is added to a number of foods and is considered safe by the FDA. So although there are few studies done to determine the appropriate dosage and it is not recommended for pregnant women, it has been used to aid in treatment of measles, diarrhea, fever and head lice.
The fact that it is outdated means it may not be as effective as it was when it was still "fresh". But other than that I can't really tell ya.
# 1 If it says use by 1/2005 it is too outdated to use. #2 Quassia is shown to be not safe to take by mouth even in medicinal doses. Side effects include irritation of the mouth, throat and digestive tract along with nausea and vomiting. Long term use can cause vision changes and possibly blindness. Large doses can cause abnormal heart function. It is not known whether it is safe to use on the skin either. Just because it is a natural substance doesnt mean it is safe. Many old herbal treatments are found to be toxic and can interact badly with other meds.
