Now, Herbs Demystified does something entirely different: It is the first book to explain exactly what herbs actually do inside our bodies and how they achieve their effects. Biochemist Holly Phaneuf covers 100 of the most popular herbs-astragalus, black cohosh, chamomile, echinacea, garlic, gingko, ginseng, milk thistle, pine bark extract, saw palmetto, valerian, and many others. Phaneufs introductory overview lays out the basic chemical principles that underlie the journey herbal molecules make in our bodies.

Then, for each of the herbs, she covers its history and folklore- explains what the herb really does-its evidence of action- its good uses and not so good uses, including the forms in which it is typically available and commonly reported dosages- interesting facts and the bottom line. Like no other herb book before, Herbs Demystified allows readers to custom-fit an herb to ones own particular concern, therefore minimizing trial and error.
