Germander is a plant. The parts that grow above the ground are used to make medicine.

Despite serious safety concerns, people take germander for treating gallbladder conditions, fever, stomachaches, and mild diarrhea; as a digestive aid, germ-killer, and “rinse for gout;” and to help with weight loss.

Some people use germander as a mouthwash to freshen the breath and kill germs in the mouth.

In manufacturing, germander is used as a flavoring in alcoholic beverages.

There isn’t enough information to know how germander might work.

Insufficient Evidence for:

Gallbladder conditions.
Fever.
Gout.
Stomachache.
Diarrhea.
Weight loss.
Use as a germ-killer (antiseptic).
Use as a mouthwash.
Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of germander for these uses.

Germander is UNSAFE. France has banned its sale. Canada does not allow germander to be included in products that are taken by mouth. However, the US still allows germander to be used in small amounts as a flavoring agent in alcoholic beverages.

The safety concern is that germander has caused several cases of liver disease (hepatitis) and death.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Germander shouldn’t be used by anyone. Some people may be at even higher risk of side effects.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Germander is UNSAFE for anyone to take as medicine. If you take it while pregnant or breast-feeding, you will endanger yourself as well as your baby.
