     Weight loss supplements take many forms in that some are purported to increase your body’s metabolism to
     increase the burning of calories. Others are supposed to ‘burn fat’ in order to reduce extra weight that might
                                                come from overeating.

                                                    Is an Herb a True Medication?
                                                               By Stephen Lau



   ? Is an herb a true medication?

If you think an herb is not a true medication, think again!

Did you know that many of the most effective medications today have herbs as their main ingredients?
For example, Digoxin, one of the most popular medications to treat heart disease has the foxglove
plant as one of its main ingredients. Some anti-cancer medications contain Madagascar periwinkle and
the Pacific yew, which are herbs.

Many people have the misconception that herbs have no medicinal values because the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) does not approve of them; or rather they are not regulated by the FDA.

Medicinal potency and regulation are two separate issues.

Understandably, quality control of herbs or herbal supplement is often a concern. For a natural herb to
be efficacious, it must contain proven ingredients in the proper doses and potencies with strict
manufacturing procedures. Unfortunately, the FDA does not regulate the production of herbal
supplements. Even with strict control and regulation, many prescription drugs are still unsafe; without
the FDA, the safety of many herbal supplements remains a concern for many.

You may be concerned with what is really inside the bottle of herbal supplement that you get from a
health food store.

Your concern is well justified. The cost of developing and marketing a new prescription drug is over
millions of dollars, while that of an herbal supplement may cost only a few thousand dollars. In the
former case, the FDA monitors a new prescription's adverse reactions and side effects, but there is
hardly any government regulation regarding the benefits and safety of new herbal supplements,
especially if they are imported.

The herbal supplements may contain too little of the ingredients the label claims to contain, especially if
the ingredients are expensive.

                                                Presented by Daniel Toriola


The herbal supplements may contain too much of the ingredients, especially where the ingredients are
not expensive but measuring the exact amount may be costly. It is not always the case that the more is
better.

The herbal supplements may contain the wrong ingredients, such as the wrong species of the same
type of plant, or the wrong parts of the same plant.

The herbs may have been contaminated, due to pesticides.

The herbal supplements may have been "enhanced" with other hidden ingredients aimed at increasing
the effectiveness of the product, such as caffeine is sometimes added as a stimulant to ginseng.

Despite all these concerns, herbs do have medicinal values.

For example, saw palmetto is a naturally occurring substance that is effective in blocking the effects of
male hormones. For thousands of years, it has been used as an herbal remedy for the treatment of
prostatic disease. Currently, it is marketed in Germany as an over-the-counter medication for the
treatment of enlarged prostate gland. Several German studies have shown its effectiveness in
controlling symptoms of prostatic disease, such as urinary obstruction. Saw palmetto may also have
applications in the treatment of hair loss in men.

The fact that no formal studies have been conducted in the United States regarding the medicinal
potency of saw palmetto (the obvious reason being that the product cannot be patented by
pharmaceutical companies) does not undermine its potency as a medication.

Take yet another example: the anticoagulant medication coumadin was originally extracted from
turmeric, which is a common spice often added to curry. Turmeric has been used in Asia for its
medicinal properties for many centuries. It is used as a blood activator, a painkiller for joints, and a liver
and gallbladder cleanser.

Educate yourself and be knowledgeable of the specific names of natural herbs and their medicinal
values.

Choose reputable manufacturers of herbal supplements, and buy only top-quality products. Do not let
price or promotion influence your purchase. Always read the labels of herbal supplements. Watch out
for misleading health claims or false ingredient information.

The healing properties of medicinal plants are well established in the West now, after centuries of
being dismissed as old wives' tales. Many herbs are Nature's gifts to us; use them wisely to cure many
illnesses with fewer side effects than pharmaceutical drugs.

                            Why Consider Using Amazon Herb Company Products?
                                                     By Mr.Andrew Caxton



 Amazon herbs are used widely by the Amazon Herb Company. Out of 200,000 botanicals, they use
only around 2% of them in their products.

Herbs grow in a large number of places, but the Amazon is by far one of the biggest producers of the
different types of herbs that we use. For those who study in the natural medicine field, the Amazon is
known as the best natural pharmacy throughout the world.

In order to honor the Amazon rainforest and the herbs that it produces, the Amazon Herb Company
aims to provide you with herbs specifically found in the rainforest.

Why Consider Using Amazon Herb Company Products?

The Amazon Herb Company has spent a lot of its time researching the herbs and plants growing within
the Amazon rainforest. The reason why they are so passionate about herbs grown in the Amazon, is
the fact that they are extremely good for the body and they are easily absorbed. If you look into most of
the processed foods available today, you will see that they are hard for the body to digest. The
Amazon Herb Company is dedicated to providing herbs that can help the body to become healthier
and they select their herbs for their purity.

Many people do not realize just how many botanicals there actually are in the rainforest. So far over
200,000 different botanicals have been found in the Amazon Rainforest alone. So the Amazon Herb
Company has taken full advantage of these botanicals and they continue to use them in their skin care
and their nutritional products.

The research that the company has done regarding the herbs has mainly come from natives in the
Amazon Rainforest area. They currently use only around 2% of the herbs that are in the Amazon and
so they still have a lot to learn. The natives to the Amazon Rainforest have fewer health concerns than
that of other people in the rest of the world and that in itself speaks volumes. The Amazon Herb
Company also helps to provide for the native people, with part of their profits going towards the locals.
It is thought that every acre of land that is used to produce botanicals that are used by the Amazon
Herb Company provides $2,400 to the local community.

Overall the Amazon Herb Company will continue to research and offer the herbs from the Amazon
Rainforest. They are certainly one of the best companies to purchase herbals products from as you
know that they have a passion for the things that they sell.
