This comprehensive resource consists of evidence-based systematic reviews of herbs and supplements. Ninety-eight rigorously reviewed monographs provide impartial data to help make unbiased clinical decisions. Validated rating scales are used to evaluate the quality of available evidence. Each monograph has extensive information including, synonyms or common names; a clinical overview of each herb; dosing/toxicology information from adult to pediatric dosages; adverse effects/precautions/contraindications; interactions; mechanism of action; history; table with discussion and review of the evidence; and brands used in clinical trials and third party testing.

• An evidence-based approach provides readers with credible information on the efficacy and safety of a therapy so they can make a decision with confidence.
• Research summaries provide readers with an overview of what the research reveals concerning the efficacy, safety, indications, and contraindications of herbs and supplements.
• Evidence tables consolidate human clinical trial data, statistical analyses, magnitude of benefit, and quality of studies, summarizing study results and relevance to aid in decision-making.
• The grading scale used to rate each herb and supplement is based on the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), an independent panel of experts in primary care and prevention that systematically reviews the evidence of herb and supplement effectiveness and develops recommendations for clinical preventive services. This grading scale is very comprehensive.
• Organized interaction tables help identify clinical significance of potential drug/herb/supplement/food/lab interactions.
• 160 condition tables, organized by specific health conditions and their related terms, prevent readers from having to reference numerous herbs and supplements when trying to treat a particular condition.
• Editorial board includes leading experts from a variety of disciplines, including physicians, pharmacists, administrators, naturopaths, homeopaths, acupuncturists, chiropractors, and researchers.
