Why read labels?

Supplement Label Regulations

Herbs are classified by the U.S. government as
"Dietary Supplements", and are not regulated as drugs.
Certain statements can legally be made on a supplement
label, such as "increases circulation", but other
statements cannot be made, such as "alleviates asthma".
Know what
you're reading. The claims that can be made are
specific to the exact action of the effect of the herbal
medicine on the body, and no claims of "cures" can legally
be made, although there is proof that many herbs have
such healing properties.
