- Graviola has demonstrated uterine stimulant activity in an animal study (rats) and should therefore not be used during pregnancy.
- Large doses may cause nausea and vomiting. Do not use in pregnancy or lactation, or in the presence of liver, or kidney disease.
- Do not take in combination with Coenzyme Q10 supplements.
- Graviola has demonstrated hypotensive, vasodilator, and cardiodepressant activities in animal studies and is contraindicated for people with low blood pressure. People taking antihypertensive drugs should check with their doctors before taking graviola and monitor their blood pressure accordingly (as medications may need adjusting). Graviola has also demonstrated significant in vitro antimicrobial properties. Chronic, long-term use of this plant may lead to die-off of friendly bacteria in the digestive tract due to its antimicrobial properties. Supplementing the diet with probiotics and digestive enzymes is advisable.
