Many people believe that herb and dietary supplements (HDS) play a huge role in their health, but for patients who take cardiovascular or nervous system medications, certain HDSs could cause a dangerous interference.
As one of the doctors in the study explains:
“Our extensive review clearly shows that some HDS ingredients have potentially harmful drug interactions that are predominately moderate in their severity. It also showed that herbal and botanical remedies were more likely to have documented drug interactions and contraindications than the other dietary supplements, such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids.”
Many people feel that taking herbal and dietary supplements are safe because of the word “herbal”, but it could really have dangerous consequences. One should never assume something that is herbal can’t affect the body or the medications.
