Are herbal product companies ripping us off?

In brief: No

Consumers have a choice whether or not to purchase a particular herbal product.
We should educate ourselves on the evidence of their benefits prior to purchasing them for a particular purpose. The product companies will be biased in the reporting benefits for a host of conditions but we have to use our own knowledge to determine the validity of their claims. The fda also plays a role.
