Naturopathica has adopted arnica (Arnica montana) through the ABC Adopt-an-Herb Program.

The adoption helps ABC maintain its information-rich HerbMedPro database, keeping it up-to-date with the latest scientific and clinical research on these herbs.

HerbMedPro is a comprehensive interactive database available on ABC’s website that provides access to important scientific and clinical research data underlying the use of approximately 250 herbs and their effects on human health.

Naturopathica is a wellness company with healing arts centers, skin and body care products, herbal remedies, and holistic health treatments. It was the first company to support the Adopt-an-Herb program upon its launch in 2009.

“ABC is deeply grateful to Naturopathica for its support of ABC’s nonprofit educational mission by adopting arnica in ABC’s robust HerbMedPro database,”​ said ABC Founder and Executive Director Mark Blumenthal.

“Naturopathica’s adoption allows ABC to ensure that the arnica record is up-to-date with the latest scientific and clinical research papers, just shortly after they are published, so researchers and others can access the totality of arnica-based research in a unique, time-saving organized format in HerbMedPro.”

Arnica montana, also known as European arnica, is a member of the daisy family (Asteraceae) and is native to Europe. Historically, arnica preparations have been used externally for their anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, skin-conditioning, and muscle pain-reducing properties. Although there are some traditional internal uses for arnica, preparations of the herb are almost exclusively used externally, with the exception of certain highly diluted homeopathic products.
