Are You Consumer-Smart?
by Dave Foreman
When you purchase a drug, you generally know exactly what you are getting. Drugs are single chemicals that can be measured and quantified according to their molecular structure. Thus, a tablet of extra-strength Tylenol® contains 500 mg of acetaminophen, no matter where or when you buy it. Herbs, however, are living organisms comprised of thousands of ingredients. The differences between one plant and another with regards to the proportions of all components may be dramatically different. Numerous influences can affect the nature of a given crop. Whether it was grown at the top or bottom of a hill, what the weather was like, what time of year it was picked, what other plants lived nearby, and what kind of soil predominated are only a few of the factors that can affect the chemical and nutritional make-up of an herb.
