    PEDUNCULATE OAK Overview Information

    Pedunculate oak is a type of oak tree. It is commonly found in Europe. The wood, bark, and leaf are used to make medicine.

    Pedunculate oak is taken by mouth for chronic fatigue syndrome, liver damage caused by alcohol, and build-up of fluid in the arms and legs that causes swelling (lymphedema). It is also used to improve athletic performance.

    Pedunculate oak is applied to the skin for wounds.

    Pedunculate oak is also used to make barrels to store wines and other spirits.

    How does it work?

    PEDUNCULATE OAK Uses & Effectiveness What is this?

    Insufficient Evidence for:

    • Liver damage caused by alcohol. Early research shows that taking pedunculate oak wood extract improves lab markers of liver damage in people with short-term liver damage due to alcohol. It is not known if pedunculate oak benefits people with more severe liver damage caused by alcohol.
    • Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Early research suggests that taking pedunculate oak wood extract might reduce tiredness and improve mood in people with CFS.
    • Exercise performance. Early research shows that taking pedunculate oak wood extract for 2 weeks while training for a triathlon can improve triathlon time. It’s not known if pedunculate oak is beneficial for triathletes when used for longer than 2 weeks.
    • Build-up fluid in the arms and legs that causes swelling (lymphedema). Early research shows that taking pedunculate oak wood extract might reduce swelling in people with fluid build-up in the legs.
    • Wound Healing.
    More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of pedunculate oak for these uses.
