ABC's HerbalGram celebrates 30th anniversary
The American Botanical Council hit a milestone with the 30th anniversary of its quarterly publication, HerbalGram. The publication, which began life as a simple newsletter, has now transformed into an 80-page, full color magazine/journal hybrid featuring high quality photography and peer-reviewed articles.

"One of the herb community's biggest challenges, especially back in the early 1980s, was credibility,"​ said Mark Blumenthal, editor of HerbalGram​ and founder of ABC. "Herbs were like the Rodney Dangerfield of medicine; they got no respect.

“Throughout its history, starting with Rob McCaleb's 'Research Reviews,' ​HerbalGram has been a leader in reporting the emerging science on herbs,”​ Blumenthal said.

Earlier in its history, HerbalGram​ was published with financial support from the American Herbal Products Association, of which Blumenthal was a founding member.  The publication is now read in more than 80 countries, according to ABC.
