AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Botanical Council (ABC) announces that Natac, a natural products and biotechnology company headquartered in Spain, officially has adopted olive (Olea europaea) through ABC's Adopt-an-Herb Program. Natac's three-year commitment will help ABC keep its HerbMedPro database up-to-date with the latest scientific and clinical research on olive. HerbMedPro is an interactive and comprehensive database, available at ABC's website, that provides access to important scientific and clinical research data underlying the use of herbs for health.
"ABC is deeply grateful to Natac for their adoption of olive," said ABC Founder and Executive Director Mark Blumenthal . "Their participation in this program will ensure that information on olive preparations in the HerbMedPro database will stay current, all while supporting ABC's nonprofit educational mission. It seems that almost every week or month there are new studies coming out on the health benefits of consumption of olive oil or olive extracts, making this an especially timely adoption."
Natac joins 15 other herb and plant-based ingredient companies that have come forward to support ABC's ongoing efforts through the Adopt-an-Herb Program to collect, organize, and disseminate reliable, traditional, and science-based information on herbs, medicinal plants, and other botanical-based ingredients.
