When should I be careful about consuming Jiaogulan? 

 “In studies of animals, birth defects occurred in some of the babies born to mothers given gynostemma during pregnancy. Although no reports of similar effects have been reported in humans, pregnant women are advised to avoid gynostemma.

Precautions: Very little information is available on how gynostemma might affect an infant or a small child. Therefore, its use is not recommended while breastfeeding or during early childhood.” Quoted from Drug Digest (all rights retained).
