Herbal Nutrition Supplements: The 5Ws


Herbal nutrition supplements are everywhere these days. So should you be taking them? To help you decide for yourself, here are the whos, whats, whens, wheres and whys on herbal nutrition.

Herbal Nutrition Supplements: What Are They?

The National Library of Medicine gives this definition: "Herbal supplements are a type of dietary supplement? that contain herbs, either singly or in mixtures".

Herbal nutrition supplements come in a variety of different forms, however, and some are better and safer than others. The Mayo Clinic advises you to "select products that have been scientifically tested".

Quality Herbal Supplements: Why Take Them?

There is a good chance that quality herbal supplements may be a healthy choice for you. Herbal nutrition supplements are excellent for people who are unable to meet their nutritional requirements because of food allergies, medical conditions, or busy schedules that don't leave enough time to control and monitor nutrient intake.

Quality Natural Supplements: Who Should Take Them?

Herbal nutrition supplements can be very beneficial for a wide range of people who need to fill in the nutritional gaps left by an incomplete diet.

However, there are also people who should not take herbal nutrition supplements. Check with your doctor first if you have:

  • High blood pressure
  • Thyroid problems
  • Parkinson's disease
  • An enlarged prostate gland
  • Blood clotting problems
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • History of stroke
  • Liver problems
  • Or, if you are pregnant or nursing

Herbal Nutrition Supplements: When Should You Take Them?

Herbal nutrition supplements can serve as a great complement to your diet or as an addition to conventional medicine. It's important to note, however, that in some cases, combining herbal nutrition supplements with other medicine can be lethal. If you're currently taking any doctor prescribed or over-the-counter medicine, be sure to consult your doctor before taking any herbal nutrition supplements.

Quality Herbal Supplements: Where Do You Find Them?

Herbal nutrition supplements are not all created equal. The Mayo Clinic warns that you "be extremely cautious about taking herbs manufactured or purchased outside the United States." They add that, "toxic ingredients and prescription drugs have been found in some herbal supplements manufactured in other countries." Your best bet is to stick to well-known products with wide usage and a popular history.

Herbal nutrition supplements, when used by the right person, at the right time can have incredible health benefits. If you think herbal nutrition supplements might be right for you and you'd like to learn more, click here to take a nutrition survey.
