Western Herbal supplements are dietary supplements that come from plants. A few that you may have heard of are gingko biloba, ginseng, echinacea, and black cohosh.

Nutritional supplements are any dietary supplement that is intended to provide nutrients that may otherwise not be consumed in sufficient quantities. These are substances that you might use to lower your risk of health problems, like osteoporosis or arthritis. They might contain vitamins, minerals, fiber, amino acids, herbs or other plants, or enzymes. Sometimes the ingredients in dietary supplements are added to foods, including drinks.

I might suggest nutritional supplements or herbal supplements if it is indicated in your case. I only recommend the highest quality products. It is best to buy the ones recommended, as it is not only important to take a quality product, but the right dosage is also very important.

Always remember that just because something is said to be “natural”, doesn’t mean it is safe or good for you. It could have side effects and interactions with medicine prescribed by your primary care physician. It could also be harmful to you if you have certain medical conditions and are not aware of the interactions.
