Herbal Supplement

Herbal Supplement - what is it?

So what is an herbal supplement? The herbal supplement is a supplement that provides you body with various nutrients necessary for your health and which is based of herbs and natural products. There are a wide variety of different types of herbal supplements available in the market nowadays. The benefits that each herbal supplement claims are also numerous and diverse.

Herbal Supplement - the risks.

Many of the benefits that some type of herbal supplement or supplements claims on its label are not supported by scientific evidence or scientific research. According to medical correspondent Dr. Emily Senay, preliminary research on St. John's wort for depression and gingko biloba for improvement cognitive function has not shown much of a benefit beyond that of the placebo effect. That doesn't mean though that all herbal supplements are fake. That only means that there is such a risk until more research is done.

Herbal Supplement - the variety.

You can find a great range of different brands, ingredients, and doses of herbal supplements in health food stores, grocery stores, pharmacies, discount stores, etc. According to medical correspondent Dr. Emily Senay, there are at least 880 different variations of the 10 best selling herbs. It can become very confusing to choose the best herbal supplement.

Numerous brands vary significantly in the ingredients used in production of some type of herbal supplement and in recommended dosages. The prices vary significantly too. You can definitely find the cheap or discounted herbal supplements, but with the price drop the quality usually drops. Also with cheap herbal supplements you have a greater chance of purchasing a fake product. Consult with your doctor or other health professionals before you start taking some type of herbal supplement.
