Definition of Standardized Potency:    When discussing a standardized potency of a herbal supplement; it is basically extracts of an herb that are “chemically tested and confirmed to contain a minimum dosage of all the known active constituents of the herb” (Balch, 2012). Standardized herbs usually go through a detailed process to manufacture and the extracts must be analyzed (Balch, 2012). With a non-standardized herb is there is no way to determine the potency; the herb is used as is without modification. This way you know exactly how much of the active ingredient you are getting when you take an herb which has been standardized.
