Flordis set out over 10 years ago to answer this question for you.
The first challenge is that natural medicines, especially herbal medicines, are very difficult to make to a high standard. This is because the plants themselves are hard to grow on a big scale and processing and manufacturing them, whilst preserving their biological activity, is exceptionally difficult. To provide a reliable medical benefit for you this process needs to be exactly the same every time for every batch of manufacturing.
Due to the difficulty of making natural medicines to a high standard, all products on the market (even using the same herb) are really unique different products. This is because the plants used are different - they may be bought in bulk from China or have been grown by the same family in Switzerland for decades. Also manufacturing processes are very different - companies may process the plants differently, use different solvents etc.
This means that companies should provide you, the user of natural medicines, detailed information of where their product comes from, how it is made and who is responsible for making sure this is the same every time.
Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare professional.
