Botanical supplement use is common in the United States, but its assessment is difficult among Hispanics/Latinos. This report documents the prevalence of botanical and non-vitamin non-mineral (NVNM) supplement use over a 30-day recall period in a sample of Hispanics/Latinos in the US as measured with two instruments. Dietary supplement assessment in the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos included both a medication inventory and a nutrition-based dietary supplement interview, enabling a comparison of instruments across supplement categories. Additional supplements were captured from 24-hour dietary recalls. In addition, characteristics of botanical supplement users and their motivations for use were explored. The prevalence of dietary supplement use was substantially higher as measured in the dietary supplement interview as compared to the medication inventory: for total dietary supplements (40 vs. 26%, respectively), for NVNM supplements (25 vs. 13%), and botanicals (9 vs. 4%). Concordance between the two measures was fair-moderate by Cohen's Kappa (0.28 - 0.56). Estimates were sensitive to inclusion of botanical teas captured exclusively from 24-hour dietary recalls with increases in botanical supplement prevalence from 7 to 15% with their addition. After vitamins and minerals, the most prevalent supplement ingredients consumed were omega-3 fatty acids (9.7%), lutein (9.6%), and lycopene (10.5%). The prevalence of botanical supplement use varied across Hispanic/Latino background. Individuals with a self-reported Mexican, Central or South American background were more likely to use botanicals than individuals with a Dominican, Cuban, or Puerto Rican background. Other characteristics associated with botanical supplement use included age, income, and adoption of healthy lifestyle behaviors. The association of education with botanical supplement use was stronger for more rather than less acculturated individuals. Motivations for supplement use included treatment/prevention of health conditions and appearance enhancements. Botanical use prevalence varied by Hispanic/Latino background, but characteristics of botanical supplement users across backgrounds were similar to those in the general US population as were the types of botanical supplements captured. Results suggest that drivers of commercial botanical supplement consumption may not differ between Hispanics/Latinos and the non-Hispanic white population and indicate an interest in self-improvement. Clearly needed are better dietary supplement assessment strategies and standardization of categorization.

Dietary supplements are estimated to be used regularly by almost 60% of the American population, and over 300 million people worldwide. An important and ever-growing portion of this market is in botanical supplements that are derived from natural plants. Natural, however, does not necessarily mean safe, and although plants can provide health-essential and health-improving nutrients they can also provide toxic compounds. While the use and sales of botanical supplements continues to expand rapidly, scientific understanding of the efficacy and safety of these products remains limited. The aim of Dietary Supplements of Plant Origin is to give both the general and specialized reader a comprehensive insight into the most recent findings in this interesting area of dietary supplementation. It is hoped that this book will shed a new light on this topic and impact positively upon the health of people in this new millennium.

Dietary supplements can contain a wide variety of ingredients, either singly or in combination, including nutrients, botanicals and 'bioactive components' commonly found in foods. They are marketed and used by consumers for a range of reasons: to enhance "well-being", as traditional medicines, for health promotion or disease risk reduction, and as alternatives or complements to conventional drug therapies. On a global basis, the dietary supplement industry has enjoyed rapid growth, becoming a multi-billion dollar enterprise over the last 10 years. This growth has been associated with significant changes in both the types of products available and the reasons for using these products. In many cases, these changes have occurred without the benefit of a sound scientific basis for evaluating the safety and efficacy of these products under the new conditions of use and frequently the same limited scientific evidence is used, even though current product composition, user populations, purported beneficial effects, and conditions of use may differ significantly from the available evidence or historical usage. This book presents systematic examinations of the scientific data that are available and/or needed to substantiate and evaluate the safety and efficacy of dietary supplements. A series of case studies that are illustrative of the types of scientific challenges that have been encountered in substantiating safety and efficacy for various product types are employed to point out some of the successes but also frustrations that have occurred in recent years. Discussions among presenters and participants identify the lessons learned from these experiences and formulate ideas for improved approaches to identifying research needs and for enhancing the quality and relevance of the scientific evidence available for policy decisions. Dietary Supplements and Health constitutes a useful resource for nutritionists, biochemists, public health researchers and anyone interested in herbal, alternative medicines.
