Herbal Products: Toxicology and Clinical Pharmacology / Edition 2

Herbal Products: Toxicology and Clinical Pharmacology, Second Edition
builds on the informative foundation laid by its predecessor. This
fully revised and expanded second edition boasts more than 200 new
references that document efficacy studies and adverse effects and four
new chapters devoted to dietary products. Practitioners and
researchers will find that this volume is a comprehensive resource for
objective clinical information about the potential uses, efficacy, and
safety of herbal medicines. The authors recognize that the majority of
available information on dietary supplements is typically provided by
distributors and designed to sell a product rather than objectively
inform consumers; therefore, the emphasis throughout is on information
not readily available from any other source. Similar to the first
edition, this volume is based on original studies published in
peer-reviewed journals, as well as meta-analyses, systematic reviews,
and other high-quality assessments by recognized experts.
