Herbal Supplements for an Alternative Approach to Whole-Body Health

Reading time 2 min.

A healthy and strong body is important to all of us. We all know that we should exercise regularly and eat right to make sure our body stays healthy, functions properly, and remains youthful. Getting enough vitamins and minerals is important and we often take supplements to ensure that we are getting the right amounts. These are all great ways to keep ourselves in top shape, however, there are some lesser-known alternatives that can help to boost your health as well. Consider trying out a few of these herbal supplements. They are natural remedies that are sourced from plants and have many proven benefits.

Turmeric

Turmeric is a popular supplement. This is a root that is a rich yellow-orange color and is part of the ginger family. Turmeric is often used as a spice in cooking, but can also be taken as a supplement to get more concentrated doses.

There is much debate on the difference between curcumin vs turmeric. The basic difference is that curcumin is actually the part of the turmeric root that provides health benefits. Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It amplifies good health and helps to support healthy joints. Because turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, it is great for conditions such as arthritis. It is also believed to help alleviate symptoms of depression, improve brain function, reduce the risk of cancer, and help to reduce the risk and effects of heart disease.

Reishi Mushroom

This mushroom has been gaining more recognition and popularity lately as a powerful wellness tool. It is often made into a supplement that can be taken as a capsule or a tincture. Reishi has been discovered to have anti-cancer properties. It can help to improve your immune system and fight infections. Reishi is also a good supplement to take to fight chronic fatigue. The benefits don’t end there. It has even been shown that reishi mushrooms can help to improve memory loss. Further, it can decrease blood sugar and blood pressure.

Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is a type of root and is one of the best known herbs classified as an adaptogen, meaning it will work with your body and adapt accordingly to provide the support that your unique system needs. This root is powerful and aids whole body function. It helps to strengthen your systems and keep your body in balance. Ashwagandha is great for lowering cortisol levels and alleviating depression and anxiety. It can also help with memory loss. It is an anti-inflammatory and can lower cholesterol and blood sugar. Another benefit of ashwagandha is increased energy. As you can see, this is a powerful supplement to consider taking since it has many benefits.

Rhodiola

This herbal supplement is great for relieving stress. It can also help to treat depression and anxiety. Rhodiola is also an excellent choice for helping to combat fatigue as well.

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo is a well known herbal supplement and a great antioxidant. It has been known to help treat heart disease and improve circulation in the body. Ginkgo can also be used to fight dementia and brain disorders. Finally, it is a powerful tool to help promote vision and eye health.

You should always speak with your doctor before you begin taking any new supplements. While many natural remedies are harmless and have few side effects, there is always the potential for interaction with other medications. Be safe and speak with your doctor or healthcare provider to make sure that you are choosing herbs that are safe and a good option for you. Your provider can give you advice on dosages and an effective treatment plan.

These herbal supplements are often used in a powder form that can be mixed into a liquid and drank. They also come as capsules, tinctures and sometimes teas. They are powerful tools to aid you in your wellness journey. Do your research, pay attention to your body’s reactions, and be sure to stick with it for several weeks to give your new supplement time to take effect. You should soon notice some wonderful benefits and changes to your body and how you feel.
