The monograph was written by Heather S. Oliff, PhD and ABC's Blumenthal. It was formally peer reviewed by scientific and medical experts for its accuracy.
"This monograph is extremely valuable for the consumer and healthcare provider because it provides an unbiased review of the Sinupret literature," said lead author Dr. Oliff, who is the principal in the Scientific Consulting Group, LLC, and holds a doctorate in toxicology and pharmacology. "The monograph includes numerous studies to which people in the US have limited access," she continued, noting that some studies of Sinupret have been published only in German.
ABC emphasizes that the publication of the Sinupret monograph is not an endorsement or recommendation of the product or the manufacturer. "ABC has had a long history of documenting the specific herbal products and ingredients that have been clinically tested," said ABC's Blumenthal. "As part of our nonprofit educational mission, we believe it is in the public interest to identify clinically tested natural plant-based products and ingredients which the scientific literature indicates are safe and beneficial."
ABC's Sinupret monograph is the third in a series of product-specific monographs that the organization has initiated. Previous product-specific monographs developed by ABC have focused on the scientific and clinical trial data regarding the health benefits of CVT-E002 (the active ingredient in the ginseng-based dietary supplement COLD-fX) and of POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice. Additional monographs concerning specific researched commercial products and ingredients are being developed by ABC.
ABC's Sinupret monograph is available on the ABC website, one of the largest independent websites summarizi
