Herbal Medicine

Before chemical compounds began to be isolated and used as drugs, there was herbal medicine. Cultures around the world have their own native herbs and traditional use of herbal medicines. As the use of herbal medicine and supplements continues to grow, so does the importance of research on these products to ensure their safety and effectiveness. At Helfgott, traditional use of herbs as medicine meets modern science as we put these remedies to the test.
