The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has issued out warning to all Nigerians to desist from patronizing hawkers of herbal concoctions.

Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, NAFDAC DG, has stated that herbal concoctions lack storage standards and might be coming from a non-credible source.

She added that though some of the work, those who take it should be careful and make sure that they have passed NAFDAC’s safety and efficacy tests.

“For the liquid herbal concoctions, especially after four or five days, it starts growing bacteria.

“Even if the herbal concoction has some medicinal properties, the bacteria will kill the person first that is taking it.

“Many of our herbal medicines work but we have to do a lot of research to show how they work, at what level are we supposed to be taking them so that it will not get to the toxicity level.”
