TheAmerican Botanical Council (ABC), Austin, TX recognizes Naturopathica, East Hampton, NY, a natural health and wellness company, for being the first company to support the Adopt-an-Herb program and adopt arnica (Arnica montana). Naturopathica is one of 40 companies that provides support to ABC’s HerbMedPro database, a comprehensive interactive online tool that provides access to scientific and clinical research data on the uses and health effects of more than 250 popular herbs. “Naturopathica’s adoption allows ABC to ensure that the arnica record is up-to-date with the latest scientific and clinical research papers, just shortly after they are published, so researchers and others can access the totality of arnica-based research in a unique, time-saving organized format in HerbMedPro,” says ABC founder and executive director Mark Blumenthal.
