Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Whole Herb Dong Quai Root:
I have always had irregular periods. After doing some research on natural ways to help I ran across this product. I bought a bottle this past summer and within 2 weeks I had a period (after months w/out one)! It does take a while to regulate which is why I'm doing the review now. The only downside is the taste is pretty bad, but the results are worth it!
