ABC Publishes 5,000th HerbClip

July 12, 2012

The association has published these summaries and critical reviews on herbs and botanicals since 1993.

The American Botanical Council (ABC; Austin, TX) just published its 5,000th HerbClip. The education group has published these summaries and critical reviews on herbs and botanicals since 1993.

Traditionally, ABC’s HerbClips set out to explain clinical research, regulatory environments, market information, and conservation and sustainability efforts relating to specific herbs or other botanicals. The full database is searchable by common and Latin names, journal titles, pharmacological actions, clinical endpoints, and more.

“A great challenge of modern herbal science is trying to keep up with the wide array of pioneering investigations on botanicals…as well as environmental, regulatory, and trade issues, etc.,” said Francis Brinker, ND, HerbClip consulting editor and assistant professor at the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine. “Long before I became a consulting editor for HerbClip, I relied on the steady supply of these diverse and pertinent herbal article summaries to help keep me abreast of important movements in advancing the knowledge of herbs, and I still do.”

ABC says it produces fifteen HerbClips and an HerbClip news article twice monthly. ABC members and non-members can access at least two free HerbClips per installment.
