Short answer:
No, for many, mostly political, reasons. Herbs and supplements are not regulated by the government (on purpose), and instead, have to post a disclaimer. You have probably seen the statement "This product has not been reviewed by the FDA..."

Long answer:
Statements made on this website regarding the herbal and natural products offered by Lily and/or Haven Herbs have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (because the FDA does not evaluate or test herbs). This information has not been evaluated by the USFDA, nor has it gone through the "rigorous double-blind studies required before a particular product can be deemed truly beneficial or potentially dangerous and prescribed in the treatment of any condition or disease". (Their required language, not mine- as herbs are indeed tested in other countries using rigorous scientific methods, just not in the USA.)
