We will examine the major categories and subcategories of herbal constituents in order to provide a reasonable framework for understanding how molecules contribute to an herb’s observable actions. We’ll also study quality control issues, how to judge botanical potency, and principles of extraction, synergy, and variability. Colorful 3-D molecular models, diagrams, and plant photographs help to bring the concepts to life for the visually-oriented learner. While examining the details of plant constituents, this course holistically incorporates knowledge from traditional Western herbal medicine with scientific information from contemporary chemistry, botany, and human physiology.
