Resumen:

Many manufacturers of herbal supplements claim their products can improve brain function. However, the U.S. government does not require proof of these claims. Now, writing in plain English, two leading pharmacologists bring together all the scientific information you need to decide for yourself. Using clear examples, the authors explain how drugs and natural products can affect the body, how to determine whether any ingested substance is likely to have an effect, and how natural products might change the way prescription medications work. Next, they address specific herbal supplements which promise to enhance memory, relieve pain, promote sleep, and treat depression or anxiety. You will find the latest research about Ginkgo biloba, St. John's wort, valerian, lemon balm, kava, lavender, kudzu, daffodil, passion flower, and caffeinated beverages. If you use any of these products, you need this information.--From publisher description.
