Herbal supplements: Not risk-free

Some herbal supplements, including products labeled as natural, can have serious side effects. So it's important to do your homework and investigate potential benefits and side effects of supplements before you buy. And be sure to talk with your doctor, especially if you take any medicines, have chronic health problems, or are pregnant or breast-feeding.
