Health care practitioners have been concerned about giving plants with phytoestrogens to patients that have estrogen sensitive breast cancer.

The active constituents are thought to be (a) triterpene glycosides, principally actein (aglycon acetylacteol) and cimifugoside (aglycone - cimigenol), (b) isoflavones including formononetin, (c) aromatic acids including isoferulic acid, ferulic acid, and salicylic acid.281 Contraindications: Do not use in the first trimester of pregnancy due to emmenagogue effect. 404 Use after the first trimester should be under the guidance of a trained professional.

When applied topically to warts, a solution of salicylic acid (12 percent) or lactic acid (10 to 17 percent) works to soften and loosen the hardened skin. Such solutions are available over the counter as Wart-Off and Occlusal, among others. The usual recommendation is to dab acid on the wart two or three times daily, then cover it with an adhesive bandage. Acid treatment is a slow, painless way to remove warts, but acid is drying and irritating to the skin, so it must be applied with care to protect the surrounding skin. Acid-impregnated plasters may be easier to use.

While salicylates are very familiar to me as a botanist, I must admit that they are also unfathomable. salicylic acid lowers my temperature, but the very same chemical causes plants to warm up by as much as 20 degrees above the temperature of their surroundings.

Ounce for ounce, raisins contain more of all of these compounds than grapes because they contain less water.

Aspirin is readily degraded into salicylic acid, which is eventually conjugated and metabolized through glycine conjugation and glucuronidation to form salicyluric acid and salicyl glucuronide, respectively.22 Alternatively, in individuals with salicylate sensitivities, the common food preservative, sodium benzoate, can be used to assess phase II glycine conjugation.23 Either way, the metabolites are then measured in the urine. These probe markers therefore serve as useful, well researched challenge substances for the functional evaluation of four important phase II detoxification pathways.
