So I actually just bought some Reservatrol/Japanese Knotweed (Gaia Herbs brand) and wanted to start taking it to see if it helps with inflammation/boost immune system but am a little scared to now as apparently you can herx from it. Will I herx taking it if I am not taking any antibiotics or treatment? I am only really taking turmeric and MSM/vitamin C right now along with the modified citrus pectin at night.
Yes you can herx on JK.
It has antibacterial properties.
And also - immune boosting can also result in a herx.
