"In our view, all manufacturers of herbal dietary supplements and herbal teas, in the U.S. and globally, should read this article and the AHP monograph on skullcap to ensure that they are taking adequate measures to confirm that their skullcap raw material has not been confused with germander," said ABC's Blumenthal.

Foster's article is the second in a series of publications to come from the ABC-AHP-NCNPR (National Center of Natural Products Research) Botanical Adulterants Program, a nonprofit educational consortium that includes numerous third-party analytical laboratories and experts on
