Americans spend billions of dollars each year on bulk herbs and herbal products, but this does not mean they are always harmless. Although many come from natural sources, "natural" does not always mean "safe."
Some herbs can interfere with prescription medications. Others may be safe for most people, but just like prescription medications, unsafe for specific individuals. If you are thinking about trying an herbal product, play it safe. Consider discussing your interest with your primary care provider before purchasing any herbal product. Get the facts and make informed decisions!
