HerbStat allows the user to sort herbs by the number of positive or negative studies done on that herb with regard to various health conditions.

*What herbs have the most scientific evidence for promoting longevity? Protection against various types of cancers? Neuro-protection? Alzheimer's disease? Parkinson's? Infertility? Heart disease?*

HerbStat provides you with cumulative evidence-based lists and their associated abstracts, to answer all of these questions and hundreds more.

Don't risk your health or the health of your loved ones on unsubstantiated advice. Know the facts!

The work put into this app represents years of ongoing study and analysis... you won't find another database like this anywhere else!

The database from which the HerbStat iPhone app has been constructed is a dynamic ongoing collaboration designed to give statistical weight to complementary alternative medicine modalities incorporating information on cancer targets, proteins, inflammatory cascades and more. The information herein is based on direct (herbal) and indirect (phytochemical component/s, up/down regulation of cancer targets or inflammation factors associated with that herb) scientific information, or in cases of a “0” in the sorted column, anecdotal or traditional use.

Overall rankings for any herb or supplement refers to its position in the database; a position derived from an algorithm based on: Accumulated net-positive abstracts for ALL conditions; the number of cancer targets it inhibits like EGFR, HER2, COX-2, CXCR-4, CYCLIN D1, ICAM, VCAM, cFLIP…, and many other promotion, inflammation, metastasis and invasion factors; minus the total accumulation of any negative and mixed results as well as cancer targets it may promote (some herbs and supplements or their chemical components may both promote and suppress cancer targets depending on dose and the specific organ system affected); a fractional ORAC value and other factors add points as well. For Specific conditions one herb or supplement may have a low overall ranking but be well ahead of other herbs in terms of accumulated positive, or a very high percentage of positive, abstracts for a specific condition. Overall rankings are good at finding herbs with a broad spectrum of protective characteristics while condition-specific herbs will have a more specific interest.

Over time the statistical sorting of positive and negative studies will tend to raise and lower the ranking of an herb with respect to certain conditions. Nevertheless, the positive studies with regard to that herb will stand regardless of it's day to day ranking.


Please be responsible. The data contained herein is not intended to diagnose or propose treatment. Some herbs can be toxic or have adverse affects that may not have, as yet, been cautioned against in this version of the database. There are several good websites and books that contain extensive information about herb/drug interactions and we suggest that you avail yourselves of their expertise. While we do accumulate such information in the course of our research, our database, as such, is statistical in nature, specializing in research that has come to light regarding herbal efficacy against certain conditions. Please see your healthcare provider before beginning or modifying any treatment regime.

5/5 stars

Very informative!

This app provides herbal alternatives for all possible conditions. This is a keeper!

3/5 stars

Not enough info

I thought this app would have more studies and more info. For instance, there are no studies or dosages for 5HTP. It has about two sentences of info. And on curcumin, it shows numerous negative studies but no positive ones, just lists the benefits. I wish I hadn't paid 4 bucks for this. But it will come in handy. Should be 99 cents.

5/5 stars

Best yet, could be perfected.

An indispensable pocket reference and study guide. Not folk lore, but actual scientific abstracts based on careful studies by scientists around the globe. I use this app constantly. My criticisms are: 1) They need to improve cross referencing between conditions and herb profiles. 2) Need to speed up load times. 3) Need to add more common names for herbs; or at the very least always put the scientific names in the alphabetical list. 4) A quick search would be great. Still, even without these features, this app is a priceless, in-depth source of accurate information.
