The 24 products being studied had been registered as drugs: 42% (D/DBVDL, 10 products), registered as food supplement: 4% (ML, 1 product) and traditional medicine : 54% (TR/TL, 13 products). Most of the products are mixtures of several medicinal herbs, plant extracts and chemicals, ranging between 1-8 item in each product. About 45% of these products were delivered to the consumers based on physcian 's prescription and most of them were registered as TL (registration code for imported traditional medicines).
