HERBAL MEDICINES AND HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS

HERBAL MEDICINES AND HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS

Certain herbs and/or plant parts contain strong natural chemicals.

At the time of publication of this book, standards regulating the sale of herbs and the products that contain them are different from the standards that regulate food and drugs.

Under these standards, it is hard to know for sure whether a certain product is pure, what it’s actually made of, how strong it is, whether it works, and what side effects it may have.

It is also hard to know if claims made by the people who sell the product are scientifically based or, in some cases, whether it’s even safe to use.

Combining drugs (including natural chemicals) can potentially cause dangerous reactions. Herbal medications and/or herbal supplements may interfere with prescription medication you may be taking or even complicate an existing medical condition.

Before taking an herbal medication or herbal supplement, please run it past your pharmacist or another health care professional.
