What is the difference between a natural supplement and a prescription drug?

The Food and Drug Administration regulates herbal supplements as foods. This means they don’t have to meet the same standards as drugs or over-the-counter medications for proof of safety and effectiveness. Just because a product comes from Mother Nature doesn’t necessarily make it safe to use. Companies also don’t have to follow the FDA’s rules about manufacturing practices. Without government oversight on the product manufacturing and development, a bottle of pills can be contaminated or have more or less of the herb than its advertising.
