Herbal Products: Toxicology and Clinical Pharmacology, Second Editionbuilds on the informative foundation laid by its predecessor. Thisfully revised and expanded second edition boasts more than 200 newreferences that document efficacy studies and adverse effects and fournew chapters devoted to dietary products. Practitioners andresearchers will find that this volume is a comprehensive resource forobjective clinical information about the potential uses, efficacy, andsafety of herbal medicines. The authors recognize that the majority ofavailable information on dietary supplements is typically provided bydistributors and designed to sell a product rather than objectivelyinform consumers; therefore, the emphasis throughout is on informationnot readily available from any other source. Similar to the firstedition, this volume is based on original studies published inpeer-reviewed journals, as well as meta-analyses, systematic reviews,and other high-quality assessments by recognized experts.
