Look at the age of the company and see how many complaints they have had because of their products. Also check with the BBB of where they are located. Find out what standards are used to manufacture and if made in food grade or pharmacuetical grade as there is a difference. One is regulated by the Dept of Agriculture and the other is regulated by the Food & Drug Administration. Herbal supplements as a rule are not regulated, they are only taken off the market if enough people file and Adverse Reaction Event which can be found on the FDA's web site. Ironically, those with asthma preffer ephedra base products over their inhalors because it opens up the blook vessels after getting used to it.
