Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicines are one type of dietary supplement. They are sold as tablets, capsules, powders, teas, extracts, and fresh or dry plants. People use herbal medicines to try to maintain or improve their health. Herb is a plant part or plant used for its flavor, scent or therapeutic properties for herbal remedies.

Many people believe that products labeled "natural" are always good and safe for them. This is not necessarily true. Herbal medicines do not have to go through the testing that drugs do. Some herbs, such as ephedra and comfrey, can cause serious harm. Some herbs can interact with prescription or over-the-counter medicines.
