Cardamom Health Benefits

Cardamom is likely safe for most people when taken by mouth, but the potential side effects of cardamom are not known.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking cardamom in medicinal amounts if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and stick to food amounts.

Gallstones: Do not take cardamom in amounts greater than those typically found in food if you have gallstones. The cardamom seed can trigger gallstone colic (spasmodic pain).
