Let's see.  Out of that list I have Calamus, Camphor Oil , Chaparral , Comfrey, Ginkgo Biloba, something with Gotu Kola in it, Yohimbe, Pau D'Arco (taheebo), Arginine , Ornithine, Lysine, Carnitine, Tyrosine, Phenylalanine,  Tryptophan, Kava Kava, Melatonin, DHEA, Chromium Picolinate and Boron, Zinc and Manganese  supplements.  I had some Stevia one time.  Thuja is in the list and the closest I have is wormwood.

The hardest thing to explain is the obvious

But what can we do?  Those who'd like to see the supplement market disappear are also those with the money, and money drives everything...

I noticed nowhere does it say growing and consuming these things yourself is illegal...  I grow my on stevia (I live in Canada, so that could be a no-no, right?), as it's superiour to any artificial sweetener I've tried (they leave a strange aftertaste which can invoke the gag reflex or can act as a laxative - stevia doesn't).

There are several others on that list that I currently use and would not give up without a fight...  if it goes underground people will get hurt, simple as that.  Look at the currently illegal drugs, back-alley abortions, etc.  Legislation never stops anything that people want to do, just generates more profit for those who already have too much, it seems...
