The market for medicinal herbs is estimated at more than $3 billion, according to the Medicinal Plant Working Group. More than 60 million U.S. consumers take herbal remedies. The aging U.S. population is a contributing factor to the increase in supplement sales. Baby Boomers are seeking a more holistic approach to their health care.
There is widespread use of supplements, especially among senior citizens, according to Moshe Frenkel, MD, an assistant professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. Use of supplements among consumers over age 65 has doubled, according to Frenkel. Most of the supplement use is self-initiated and is done without physician approval. Frenkel says some supplements are okay, while others may have harmful effects. With growing interest in medical alternatives, physicians and pharmacists are taking herbs, dietary supplements and other self-care options into account. For example, the American Pharmacists Association published the 15th edition of the Handbook of Nonprescription Drugs in April 2006. The textbook includes a comprehensive examination of all self-care options, including nutritional supplements and herbal medications.
