Herbs and Herbal Compounds
Herbs and herbal substances are simply plants and/or their components that do not fill any known nutritional need (unlike nutritional supplements) but may contain certain compounds that can affect the mind and body in favorable and desirable ways.

Vendors and products can vary greatly in quality which is why it is important to be very picky as to where your herbals come from.
