Do All Herbal Products Heal

Packaged herbs

According to industry reports there are 18 million adults today (with numbers showing an exponential rise) who are on some form of herbal therapy. With this kind of surge in popularity, there are of course issues of safety and efficacy, which are coming up in the medical fraternity.

For instance, when an herbal supplement is marked ‘100% natural’ how can a  consumer be 100% sure of its purity, efficacy and safety? Though people ‘presume’ that they are safe, scientific research done with some of the herbal supplements show that there are traces of harmful chemicals and preservatives used, which could reduce the efficacy of the product as well as result in side effects.

Another example could be when herbal supplements are consumed during weight loss programs. With no industry regulations monitoring its quality, how can the consumer be sure that there are no ‘fillers’ like starch, etc in them? One of the things that one can do is to go by the reputation of the manufacturer, scan through product reviews by actual users on the net and consult a physician regarding the effects and side effects of the contents of the product.
