Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patrick J. Scoble, PharmD (ViroPharma Incorporated)
Description: This is valuable reference of herbs and supplements that a wide spectrum of healthcare professionals can use to advise their patients.
Purpose: The implied purpose is to provide a general informational source on available herbs and supplements that are intended for human use. This objective is worthy in no small part because of the fact that there is a paucity of data on herbs and supplements for human use. This reference compiles and distributes a great deal of valuable information in one place.
Audience: The backgrounds of the founders of Natural Standard speak for themselves, while its editorial board is a vast one with a remarkable pedigree. Given this level of expertise, both the founders and the editorial board are certainly credible authorities.
Features: Some 400 herbs and supplements are reviewed, in a layout that's the book's best asset. It is well organized, concise, and extremely user-friendly. However, the reference list online is not as helpful as it should be..
Assessment: This is great addition to any healthcare professional's library and can readily bolster one's herbal and supplement information armamentarium. The way the book is laid out, the concise and organized way each herb and supplement is presented, and the ease with which the book can be used are clear indicators of the value of this reference.
From the Publisher
"This new edition provides short monographs of approximately 400 herbs and supplements."
