Dodder / Aftimoon (افتیمون) is a leafless, delicate, yellow colored stem parasite seen entangled on shrubs and hedges along the roads and railway tracks.
It is also known as Devil’s Guts, Dodder, Hellweed, Love Vine, devil’s gut, beggar weed, strangle tare, scald weed, dodder of thyme, greater dodder, lesser dodder and Cuscuta Reflexa.
Dodder seed extract is natural and generally safe. The herb, however, is very powerful and each individual should take the correct dosage. No side effects have been reported, if the extract is taken as recommended by physician.
Dodder might cause stomach pain in some people. It is recommended to avoid its use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
