NZ Lifestyle Block - - Plants with a purpose -

Bor­age plant parts can con­tain pyrrolizidine al­ka­loids (PAS), nat­u­ral tox­ins which could be toxic to the liver and cause dis­ease. Use only prepa­ra­tions which are la­belled hep­a­toxic Pa-free. Preg­nant and lac­tat­ing women should avoid bor­age oil as there is in­suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence for its safety.
