Description

May alleviate pain

Wormwood has long been sought for its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties.

May fight parasitic infections.

Wormwood has been used to treat intestinal worms as far back as Ancient Egypt. This parasite-fighting property is attributed to thujone.

Boasts antioxidant properties

Besides thujone, another notable wormwood compound is chamazulene. It acts as an antioxidant and is most concentrated in the essential oils of the plant’s pre-flowering stage.

Antioxidants like chamazulene may combat oxidative stress in your body, which is associated with cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and other ailments.

May fight inflammation

Artemisinin, another plant compound found in wormwood, may help fight inflammation in your body. Prolonged inflammation is associated with several chronic diseases.

Artemisinin is thought to inhibit cytokines, which are proteins secreted by your immune system that promote inflammation.

 

Vulnerable populations and people with certain conditions may want to avoid wormwood. These conditions include:

  • Pregnancy. You shouldn’t take wormwood if you’re pregnant, as it may cause miscarriage.
  • Breastfeeding and early childhood. Breastfeeding women and children should avoid this herb due to a lack of safety information.
  • Epilepsy. Thujone stimulates the brain and has been known to cause seizures. Wormwood may also decrease the effectiveness of common anti-seizure medications, such as gabapentin and primidone.
  • Heart disease. Taking this herb with the heart disease medication warfarin may cause intestinal bleeding.
  • Kidney problems. Wormwood is toxic to the kidneys and may increase your risk of kidney failure.
  • Certain allergies. If you’re allergic to members of the Asteraceae family, such as ragweed and marigolds, you may also react to wormwood, which is in the same botanical family.
