Many herbs are incredibly beneficial for total mind and body wellness. Take a look at a few of the natural herbal supplements that we’ve researched and the various benefits they could offer you.
1. St. John’s Wort
A small flowering plant that has been useful for centuries, St. John’s Wort is best known for its use as an antidepressant. While it should never replace a physician's care, there is evidence that shows this natural herbal supplement can be as effective as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) and can reduce the effects of minor depression.
St. John’s Wort also has antibacterial properties that are useful for treating wounds and can be taken internally to increase the production of certain liver enzymes that aid in detoxification.
Echinacea is a well known immune support supplement that was originally discovered by Native Americans. Many studies have shown that using echinacea as a deterrent for colds regularly can reduce the chances of developing one by over 50%! When the effects of this natural herbal supplement were explored in mice, scientists found that it significantly extended their lifespan and reduced the effects of cancer.
3. White Willow 15% Extract
White willow extract is an herbal supplement with benefits that have been used for millennia worldwide. While it can be used to break down the binding between albumin and THC in detox kits to help clear your system, this supplement is also effective as a painkiller and for skincare, inflammation, fevers, and joint pain. Many doctors even recommend a small dose of aspirin (made of white willow) every day to prevent heart attacks and strokes.
4. Horsetail Extract
Most people use horsetail extract as a mild diuretic, the same way you would use prune juice or ginger, but it has many more uses than that! Horsetail extract can improve your overall health due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties. A small daily dose can help with weight loss, regeneration of skin, hair, and nails, collagen production, and natural detoxification.
5. Psyllium Husk
Psyllium is a kind of seed, the husk of which can be used for many different reasons. While we use psyllium husk as a natural herbal supplement in our detox kits to act as a source of fiber and bind to THC in your gut, it can also be used for weight loss, as a prebiotic, and to improve heart health. Because it affects your digestion, it can help you maintain healthy gut flora which in turn lowers your cholesterol and blood pressure.
