As time goes by these Bupleurum based formulas are less and less necessary until eventually they are used only when needed, if at all. Bupleurum is a powerful detoxifying herb.

The primary side effect is that detoxification can take place too rapidly. This is why it is used with herbs such as White Peony and Scutellaria, both of which detoxify the blood and eliminate heat that builds up with detoxification.
