The Role of Science-Based Herbal Medicine in Healthcare, Part 1


Mark Blumenthal is founder and Executive Director of the American Botanical Council (ABC). We commemorate the 35th anniversary of the ABC, the 40th anniversary of HerbalGram, an informative publication about botanical medicine, and Mark’s 50th anniversary as an herbal advocate, consultant, educator, and researcher. His Botanical Adulterants Prevention Program is a resource to the natural products industry to combat fraud, contamination and toxicity of herbal products. We discuss the science underlying such nutraceuticals as curcumin, berberine, maca, ashwagandha and black cumin. Mark traces the development of the botanicals industry from its origins with teas and tinctures to today’s standardized and scientifically vetted products. Click HERE for part 2.
