Speaker: Mark Blumenthal. The ABC-AHP-NCNPR Botanical Adulterants Program recently came out with a paper detailing adulteration of medicinal ginseng products with other species and ingredients. Using this most recent paper as a starting point, Mark describes the latest initiatives in the program to uncover accidental and/or intentional adulteration and outright fraud in global herbal markets, which emphasizes the importance of relying on dependable sources for the herbal medicines we use.
