Each person is confronted with important life choices each day. When it comes to health care and medicinal agents, such choices abound. Each individual must decide whether their preference should be for the greatest nutrient and phytochemical complexity as found in the whole herb and in a somewhat reduced content with native extracts. Or, are the concentrated fractions or their isolated drug constituents more desirable? It becomes more confusing when the extract is called a herb and the fraction is referred to as an extract. It is exasperating when the fraction is marketed as an herb. Dried herb, extract, fraction or isolate, each at some time likely to be called a drug, all have a living plant as their source. How close to the source do you want to be? This book provides information to help understand the differences, so that decisions can be made with a better grasp of the issues involved.
