Herb commonly used from ancient times. Firm evidence is available on its effectiveness for treatment of depression, to the extent that it should be avoided a sudden stop of medication to prevent a rebound effect. It has been also topically used for the treatment of wounds, burns and eczema due to healing and antiseptical properties. Constituents are: Hypericin, Hyperforin and Quercetin. Antidepressant properties are attributed to Hypericin but mostly to Hyperforin. Quercetin is a flavonoid which is commonly found in many fruits and eatable vegetables. Hyperforin is excreted into breast milk in nil or clinically non-significant amount with not side-effects reported among breastfed infants from treated mothers, except for isolated and dubious cases of somnolence and colicky pain with spontaneous resolution with no medical intervention being required. Plasma levels in those infants were undetectable or close to the lower detectable point (0.1μg/L). Hypericin has not been detected in the breast milk. Quercetin levels found were as low as of few nanomols/L., and related to composition of fruits and vegetables of diet. It is most important to make sure that composition and amount of Hypericum contained in commercially available products is correct, do not take it without medical surveillance, avoid sudden stop and consider pharmacological interactions with many other medications.

Ingested magnesium is not concentrated in the breast milk. Average natural concentration of magnesium in the milk is 31 mg / L (15 to 64 mg / L) which is barely affected by magnesium intake. Its low oral bioavailability makes the step to plasma infant from ingested breast milk is scarce, except in premature and immediate neonatal period that may be characterized by an increased intestinal absorption. Daily Magnesium needs for nursing mothers are estimated at 250 mg.Avoid chronic use or overuse.

Se utilizan las flores y también raíces y hojas de esta planta herbácea.Contiene lactonas sesquiterpénicas, aceite esencial, flavonoides y trazas de alcaloides pirrolizidínicos.Uso tópico sobre piel íntegra.Indicaciones en medicina tradicional sin pruebas de su eficacia: antiinflamatorio tópico en contusiones, esguinces y dolores musculares localizados (EMA 2014). No aplicar sobre piel dañada.Es muy tóxica por vía oral (Anderson 2017) habiéndose descrito gastroenteritis, arritmia cardiaca problemas neurológicos y muerte (WHO 2007 p.77, n.a.l. 2001) en personas que la tomaron y un caso de anemia hemolitica grave en un recién nacido de 9 días cuya madre tomaba infusión de arnica (Miller 2009). A fecha de última actualización no encontramos datos publicados sobre su excreción en leche materna. La pequeña dosis y la escasa absorción plasmática de la mayoría de preparaciones dermatológicas tópicas hacen poco probable el paso de cantidad significativa a leche materna. No aplicar sobre el pecho para que el lactante no lo ingiera, ni en áreas extensas o por periodos prolongados para evitar absorción sistémica. Conviene lavarse las manos después de la aplicación de arnica para evitar un posible contacto con la boca del lactante.

Comfrey (Symphytum officinalis) herb and leaf contains allantoin and rosmarinic acid; comfrey also contains pyrrolizidine alkaloids. Comfrey preparations have been used topically for pain following episiotomy and cracked, painful nipples, either as aqueous preparations or in creams and ointments. Scientific evidence of effectiveness for these indications is minimal. The pyrrolizidine alkaloids in comfrey can cause severe liver damage, liver cancer, mutagenicity, and even death. For this reason, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has banned the sale of oral comfrey products in the United States. Furthermore, most sources consider topical use of comfrey during breastfeeding to be contraindicated. If it is used on the skin, it should only be applied to intact skin away from the breast on the smallest area of skin possible, and for a limited duration. It is particularly important to ensure that the infant not come into direct contact with the areas of skin that have been treated, because ingestion may cause severe liver damage. Dietary supplements do not require extensive pre-marketing approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Manufacturers are responsible to ensure the safety, but do not need to the safety and effectiveness of dietary supplements before they are marketed. Dietary supplements may contain multiple ingredients, and differences are often found between labeled and actual ingredients or their amounts. A manufacturer may contract with an independent organization to verify the quality of a product or its ingredients, but that does certify the safety or effectiveness of a product. Because of the above issues, clinical testing results on one product may not be applicable to other products. More detailed information #about dietary supplements# is available elsewhere on the LactMed Web site.
