Has anyone tinctured this? Would you use aerial parts or root? I have an 'in remission' cancer patient that is on C-Statin by Aiden Products, which is an extract of Convolvulus arvensis produced as a supplement to prevent the growth of new blood vessels that feed tumours. She would like to take the real plant but are the comments on the C-Statin website accurate as to the toxic load carried by the plant before the extraction process, or something exaggerated to drive people forward to the ordering page...
I am trying to find info on the web, but I would really like the input of herbalists who have used the plant an have an understanding as to the long-term 'toxic' effects of the plant, if any.
