What are the most common herbs that people use over the counter?

Some studies indicate soy, a plant protein loaded with fiber, potassium and magnesium, may decrease breast and prostate cancer risks. Soy may also improve treatment success for these cancers. Companies of supplements containing ginseng claim it fights fatigue and weakness, and producers of supplements with ginger claim it decreases nausea, all common cancer side effects. When you consider using these products, remember that more research is needed to prove these supplements have the health benefits they advertise before they can be clinically prescribed, some herbal supplements have even shown to harm users’ health. Ginkgo, the most popular herb on the market, is used to prevent dementia and improve memory, but it increases bleeding risk. St. John’s Wort, shown to be effective in treating mild to moderate depression, can interfere with metabolism of other drugs.
