Dr. Ivan Ross continues documenting the medicinal value of twenty-eight additional major plants species widely used around the world in medical formulations. These species have not been covered in his two other books and feature important plants including soy, ginger, green tea, coffee, olive, saw palmetto and dandelions. The book's exhaustive summary of available scientific data for the plants provides detailed information on how each plant is used in different countries, describing both traditional therapeutic applications and what is known from its use in clinical trials. A comprehensive bibliography cites the literature available from a wide range of disciplines. This book offers an unprecedented collection of vital scientific information for pharmacologists, herbal medicine practitioners, drug developers, medicinal chemists, phytochemists, toxicologists, and researchers who want to explore the use of plant materials for medicinal and related purposes.
