Botanical Safety Handbook, Second Edition
Now available in hardback print and searchable online formats

Online version  Hardcover print version 


This publication is an essential tool for anyone who manufactures, recommends, or uses herbal products. It provides safety information on over 500 species of herbs, derived from data compiled from clinical trials, pharmacological and toxicological studies, medical case reports, and historical texts. It was co-edited by Zoë Gardner, research and development manager at Traditional Medicinals (the book’s Research Editor) and AHPA President Michael McGuffin (the Managing Editor). In addition, all entries were reviewed by an Expert Advisory Council that includes some of the most renowned herbal and integrative medicine experts in the United States.

The Botanical Safety Handbook, Second Edition includes:
  • Easily understood classification systems to indicate the safety of each listed species and the potential for drug interactions
  • Information on adverse events reported in clinical trials or case reports 
  • Safety-related pharmacology and pharmacokinetics of each herb
  • Additional information on the use of herbs by pregnant or lactating women 
  • Toxicological studies and data on toxic compounds 
  • Extensive references for each entry

The book is available in hardback print and online formats. Both versions contain the same information, but the online version, which is optimized for smartphones and tablets, has several additional attributes. Some of these relate to its operation, as it allows subscribers to search for keywords and botanical names and easily access the information they use most by saving personalized lists of entries. Perhaps more importantly, the online version will be updated regularly with new research, and subscribers will be notified of updates to provide immediate access to the most current information.

The standard retail cost for either version is $119.95 (one-time cost in print; a renewable annual subscription online). We are discounting the cost for our members and would be happy to offer a discount to other organizations.

A free preview of several entries are available online:
