A general disillusionment with conventional medicines, coupled with the desire for a 'natural' life style has resulted in an increasing utilisation of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) across the developed world. The global market for herbal products has grown rapidly in the past decade, yet the majority are not assessed for their quality, safety and efficacy.
