THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM REVITALIZER® SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
Many of these safety considerations may seem to be in contradiction of each other. That’s because they are. Our infusions are designed to address many safety considerations with other pharmaceutical herbs (e.g. both raising and lowering blood sugar levels at the same time). The infusion is made further safe by managing the herbal quantities provided at any one time. Please follow our recommended dosage below and be confident and secure in your pathology prevention efforts.
Ingredients of this infusion consumed in quantities of three teaspoons (3 teabags) per day over a three to six-month period are GENERALLY CONSIDERED SAFE by the FDA under the G.R.A.S. provision. However, you might consider the following:
General Considerations This infusion may temporarily worsen symptoms because of the detoxifying action. When consumed by mouth in normal quantities this infusion does not cause serious side effects. But some people can experience stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, or diarrhea. Do not continue consuming this infusion if you experience any of these symptoms.
When consumed in extreme amounts (over ten teabags per day) for more than 4 weeks or in smaller amounts long-term, this infusion can cause side effects including high blood pressure, low potassium levels, weakness, and paralysis, in otherwise healthy people. Overuse and abuse of this infusion could make kidney disease worse. The infusion can lower a man's interest in sex and also worsen erectile dysfunction (ED) by lowering levels of a hormone called testosterone.
So don't consume more than 10 bags of this infusion per day - ever!
Infants and Children Not for the use by anyone under twelve years old. This infusion has not been tested for the consumption by children or infants and is considered UNSAFE. If accidentally ingested contact medical authorities immediately.
Allergic Reactions This infusion may cause an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to the Asteraceae plant families. Members of these families include ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, daisies, and many others. If you have allergies, be sure to test with a small quantity of the herbs contained within this infusion externally rubbed on your skin, followed by drinking a small amount of the diluted infusion. Only after these tests prove to be safe, should you consume normally. Check with your healthcare provider with any concerns. This infusion contains significant amounts of salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is similar to aspirin. Avoid drinking large quantities if you are allergic to aspirin.
People with eczema seem to have a higher chance of having an allergic reaction, so be careful if you have eczema.
Pregnancy and Breast-feeding There is not enough reliable information about the safety of consuming this infusion if you are pregnant or breast feeding. It is LIKELY UNSAFE. There is a concern that it might cause early delivery or miscarriage. It might promote a menstrual period or stimulate the uterus, putting the pregnancy at risk. Discuss the use of this infusion with your healthcare provider if you are trying to get pregnant.
Blood Pressure This infusion can theoretically lower your blood pressure and increase the risk of blood pressure dropping too low in people prone to low blood pressure or with pre-existing low blood pressure. It may also increase, or cause a spike in your blood pressure with people who have pre-existing high blood pressure. Some medications for male sexual dysfunction can also decrease blood pressure. Using this infusion along with medications for male sexual dysfunction might cause your blood pressure to go too low. Using this infusion with medications that also increase blood flow to the heart might increase the chance of dizziness and lightheadedness. Don't consume large amounts of the infusion without monitoring your blood pressure.
Bleeding Disorders This infusion contains chemicals such as berberine and Rugosin E, these might slow blood clotting and increase the risk of bleeding, the risk of bruising and bleeding in people with bleeding disorders. In theory, it might make bleeding disorders worse.
Seizures There is a concern that this infusion might stimulate seizures or interact with other medications taken to prevent seizures. If you have ever had a seizure, or if your taking medications that increase the chance of having a seizure, don't consume this infusion.
Anemia Deficiency of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD): This infusion might cause anemia in people who have G6PD enzyme deficiency. Until more is known, use cautiously or avoid the infusion if you have G6PD deficiency.
Diabetes Some evidence suggests that consuming this infusion might lower blood sugar levels. This might lower blood sugar levels too much in people with diabetes who are already taking medications to lower blood sugar. Watch for signs of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and monitor your blood sugar carefully if you have diabetes and are consuming this infusion. Dosing adjustments to diabetes medications might be necessary.
Thyroid Disease This infusion may interfere with the action of thyroid hormones. Don't consume this infusion without considering the concern that it may change thyroid function, reduce thyroid hormone levels, and interfere with thyroid hormone-replacement therapy. This infusion might act like estrogen in the body. However, other research shows that it reduces the effects of estrogen in some hormone-sensitive cancer cells. Therefore, this infusion might have beneficial effects on hormone-sensitive conditions. Until more is known, use cautiously if you have a condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen ‘like’ hormones.
Surgery This infusion might increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. It may also cause too much drowsiness if combined with medications used during and after surgery. This infusion may slow down the central nervous system. Anesthesia and other medications used during surgery also affect the central nervous system. The combined effects might be harmful. Stop consuming it at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
POTENTIAL INTERACTIONS No side effects or drug interactions have been reported concerning this infusion. However, you might consider the following:
Alcohol Interaction - Be cautious with this combination. Talk with your healthcare provider. Alcohol can cause sleepiness and drowsiness. Our infusion may also cause sleepiness and drowsiness. Consuming large amounts of the infusion along with alcohol might cause too much sleepiness.
Cocaine Interaction - Cocaine has many dangerous side effects. Using this infusion along with cocaine might increase the side effects of cocaine including heart attack and death. Theophylline Interaction - This infusion can increase how much theophylline the body can absorb. Consuming this infusion along with theophylline might increase the effects and side effects of theophylline.
Liver Processing Interaction - By design, some medications are changed and broken down by the liver. This infusion might affect how quickly the liver breaks down these medications. Consuming this infusion along with some medications that are broken down by the liver can increase the effects and side effects of some medications. Some medications that are changed by the liver include acetaminophen, amitriptyline (Elavil), atorvastatin (Lipitor), diazepam (Valium), digoxin, entacapone (Comtan), estrogen, haloperidol (Haldol), irinotecan (Camptosar), lamotrigine (Lamictal), lorazepam (Ativan), lovastatin (Mevacor), meprobamate, morphine, ondansetron (Zofran), propranolol (Inderal), theophylline (Theo-Dur, others), verapamil (Calan, Isoptin, others), oxazepam (Serax), and others.
Kidney Stones - This infusion contains a small amount of a chemical called oxalate. Since kidney stones are made primarily from oxalate combined with calcium, healthcare providers worry that this might increase the risk of kidney stones. In theory, this might increase the risk for complications in people with kidney problems.
Antibiotic Interaction - This infusion might decrease how much antibiotic the body absorbs. Consuming it along with antibiotics might decrease the effectiveness of some antibiotics. Some antibiotics that might interact with this infusion include azithromycin, ciprofloxacin (Cipro), clarithromycin, enoxacin (Penetrex), demeclocycline (Declomycin), erythromycin , minocycline (Minocin), norfloxacin (Chibroxin, Noroxin), sparfloxacin (Zagam), tetracycline (Achromycin), trovafloxacin (Trovan), and grepafloxacin (Raxar).
Lithium Interaction -This infusion might have an effect like a water pill or "diuretic." Consuming it might decrease how well the body gets rid of lithium. This could increase how much lithium is in the body and result in serious side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before using this product if you are taking lithium. Your lithium dose might need to be changed.
Ventricular Tachycardia - Don’t consume this infusion if you have this heart condition. Medications for Depression - This infusion might impact the effectiveness of your depression medication. Talk with your healthcare provider before using this product if you are taking antidepressants. Your dose might need to be changed.

Heart Disease - This infusion may interact with many prescription drugs used to treat heart diseases. If you have a heart condition, consult your healthcare provider before using this infusion. This infusion is UNSAFE to use unless you are under close medical supervision.
Potassium Interactions - Don’t use this infusion if you are potassium deficient. The infusion contains chemicals called cardiac glycosides that can cause the body to lose potassium. This could make potassium deficiency worse. Some medications for inflammation can decrease potassium in the body. Some medications used for inflammation include dexamethasone (Decadron), hydrocortisone (Cortef), methylprednisolone (Medrol), prednisone (Deltasone), and others. If your potassium level gets low enough, it can harm the heart. Low potassium levels can also increase the risk of side effects from this infusion.
Water Pill Interactions - This infusion contains significant amounts of potassium. Some "water pills" can also increase potassium levels in the body. Taking some "water pills" along with this infusion might cause too much potassium to be in the body. Some "water pills" that increase potassium in the body include amiloride (Midamor), spironolactone (Aldactone), and triamterene (Dyrenium).
This infusion may also reduce significant amounts of potassium. Low potassium levels can also affect the heart and increase the risk of side effects from the infusion. Some "water pills" that can deplete potassium include chlorothiazide (Diuril), chlorthalidone (Thalitone), furosemide (Lasix), hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ, HydroDiuril, Microzide), and others.
Calcium Supplements - This infusion can stimulate the heart. Calcium might also affect the heart. Using the infusion along with calcium might cause the heart to be too stimulated. Use care when consuming this infusion along with calcium supplements.
Digoxin (Lanoxin) Interactions - Digoxin (Lanoxin) helps the heart beat more strongly. Our Infusion also seems to affect the heart. Using this infusion along with digoxin can increase the effects of digoxin and increase the risk of side effects. Do not use this infusion if you are taking digoxin (Lanoxin) without talking to your healthcare professional.
Quinine Interactions - Quinine and this infusion can affect the heart. Taking quinine along with the infusion might cause serious heart problems at large doses.
Stimulant Laxatives Interactions - Stimulate laxatives can affect the heart. The heart uses potassium. Laxatives called stimulant laxatives can decrease potassium levels in the body. Low potassium levels can increase the chance of side effects from this infusion. Some stimulant laxatives include bisacodyl (Correctol, Dulcolax), cascara, castor oil (Purge), senna (Senokot), and others.
Acetaminophen Interactions - Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) interacts with this infusion. Drinking this infusion before taking acetaminophen might increase how fast your body gets rid of acetaminophen. But more information is needed to know if this is a big concern.
CAUTION: Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels, indications, and safety consideration product tabs. Consult your pharmacist, herbalist, or other healthcare professional before consuming.
