The Herb Research Foundation

Improving world health and welfare through herbs

Who we are:

The Herb Research Foundation (HRF) is a nonprofit research and educational organization focusing on herbs and medicinal plants. Our resources include:

What we do:


We publish the 80 page color journal, HerbalGram for our members, in coordination with with our sister organization the American Botanical Council in Austin, Texas. HerbalGramis the best herb magazine anywhere, critically acclaimed, interesting and beautiful. Through the magazine and our newsletter, Herb Research News, we keep our members up to date with the latest facts on herbs in science, legislation, and business.

Our Mission:

To improve world health and welfare through herbs.

The materials in our files are available to the public at a nominal cost to cover research time, copying and shipping. Our members receive discounts and priority service, but we strive to offer herb information to anyone, as time and money allow. We are beginning to distribute some materials on the Internet, and also working on a natural healthcare database, to answer questions from the public. We hope soon that we may be able to offer this online.

HRF is working to increase the rational and informed use of herbs through scientific research and historical documentation. We are working to bring nature back into modern health care in the US and around the world..
