RECALL on NOW Ashwagandha Extract 450 mg

  1. RECALL on NOW Ashwagandha Extract 450 mg

    Got a email Just giving y'all a heads up

    NOW Foods is voluntarily recalling its NOW Ashwagandha Extract 450 mg 90 veg capsules due to the presence of an undeclared ingredient. This recall has been instituted because NOW has determined that this product contains an undeclared ingredient - licorice extract - which contains glycyrrhizin. Excess consumption of glycyrrhizin can cause potassium levels in the body to fall to an unhealthy level. Certain persons may experience abnormal heart rhythms, as well as high blood pressure, edema (swelling), lethargy and congestive heart failure. Some people, particularly those with preexisting medical conditions such as hypertension, heart and kidney disease and those with high salt intake, are more susceptible to these effects. While the known levels at which these symptoms may occur are higher than the maximum levels of glycyrrhizin contained in this product lot, and no reports of any symptoms have been reported to NOW Foods to date, NOW is taking this step as a precaution. Discontinue use of this product and avoid consuming licorice and licorice-containing products if you have taken this product. The FDA has provided a consumer update on the consumption of licorice at: Our records indicate that you may have purchased these products from If you have any of these products and an allergy to milk, please discontinue use and contact Customer Service to arrange a return and refund.
