Bayberry - Dosage/Safe Use

** In large amounts, bayberry can raise blood pressure, cause you to retain fluids and sodium, because it will decrease your body's potassium levels.

**Do NOT use Bayberry if you have:

water retention
kidney disease
heart failure

Talk to your doctor first.

If you do not have these preconditions, use Bayberry in 1/2 to 2 grams of powdered bayberry 3 times a day in tea form, OR 1 teaspoon of the powdered root bark once a day.
