The American Botanical Council (ABC) and its executive director Mark Blumenthal have been active critics of a recent study that reported botanical supplements are adulterated. The study from the BMC Medicine used only barcoding assays to identify the botanicals. However, as Blumenthal has argued, the study did not verify botanical identities with another testing method and did not take into account fillers that might be present in the supplements.
In this exclusive INSIDER video interview, Blumenthal discusses the study, its flaws and his take on the best way to identify botanicals.
