Warning:
While cloves are renowned for their aromatic and medicinal qualities, it's essential to approach their consumption with informed caution. Cloves contain eugenol, a potent compound that, while beneficial in small quantities, can pose health risks if consumed excessively. Overconsumption of cloves may lead to adverse effects such as liver damage, blood thinning, and gastrointestinal discomfort. Individuals with liver conditions, bleeding disorders, or those on anticoagulant medications should be particularly cautious. Pregnant women and young children are advised to limit their intake. As with any dietary supplement or herbal product, moderation is key, and it is always prudent to consult with a healthcare provider before incorporating cloves or clove oil into your health regimen. Remember, the key to harnessing the benefits of cloves lies in their responsible and moderate use.
