People have relied upon herbal medicines to take care of their health since ancient times, and the interest in herbal products and the global market continues to grown each year. Several studies in ethnobotanical, pharmacological, and phytochemical areas have been conducted, but there is still much to explore, especially regarding the development of herbal products. Aside from pharmacological validation, herbal product development requires studies on all production processes. These studies include plant cultivation, the extraction process, formulation development, the definition of quality control parameters, and clinical assays. Therefore, in this Special Issue, we invite researchers to share their findings on all aspects of development and innovation in herbal products, such as quality control, the standardization of extracts, clinical assays, and regulatory issues related to medicinal plants, functional foods, and dietary supplements.
