In the early 1900’s Herbal Supplements were the hallmark of the pharmaceutical industry. About 67% of all medicine listed in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) were botanicals. Now only 2% of all entries in the USP are botanicals. With the cost of rising health care, and a shift towards self-medicating, the consumer demand for 100% natural products has increased dramatically. This Course will review the most common/y used herbs and natural substances. It will also provide you with information on drug herb interactions and unsafe herbs and natural supplements.
