My stuff reads that way, too. I take it while pregnant (and breastfeeding). My children take it. I know naturopaths and midwives who recommend it. I'm guessing the warning is probably just a precaution because the herbs aren't really regulated by the FDA, so they're just covering their butts for litigious reasons.

I talked to my midwife and she said as long as it's standardized extract (it is), then it is fine.
