Herbal nutrition supplement
An herbal nutrition supplement is a type of dietary supplement that contains herbs, either singly or in mixtures. An herb is a plant or plant part used for its scent, flavor, and/or therapeutic properties. Many herbs have a long history of use and have claimed health benefits. For example, ginseng can provide energy, ginkgo biloba can increase memory and concentration, and vitamin C can ward off illness.
To find a high quality herbal nutrition supplement, one should look for the following. 1) The herbal nutrition supplement should contain pure extracts. The ones that fall into this category are known as standardized herbal extracts and offer the highest quality active ingredients. 2) Look for a product that is manufactured by a highly credentialed formulator. This is someone who is qualified to create the herbal nutrition supplement with ingredients that work together to create a maximum health benefit. 3) Each ingredient in the supplement should be backed by a Certificate of Analysis (COA) which ensure the safety, quality, and efficacy of each of the ingredients. 4) The herbal nutrition supplement should be manufactured in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations (GMP). These regulations ensure the supplement is manufactured under strict standards.
Additionally, it is advisable to take more than one herbal nutrition supplement together to enhance the therapeutic benefits of each other. For example, while vitamin E is an important antioxidant, other antioxidants such as green tea extract and red clover should be taken together to be more effective to ward off ailments and illnesses. Another example includes taking vitamin E and vitamin C together to enhance the effectiveness of each. The following is a brief list of what an herbal nutrition supplement can contribute towards:
Glucosamine and chondroitan: rebuilds cartilage found in joints. Echinacea: improves the immune system. Aloe: heals cuts and prevents infection. Ginger: helps with digestive and stomach problems. Vitamin C: is a powerful antioxidant and can help treat hip, arthritis, and urinary tract problems. Saint John's Wort: treats depression. Ginkgo: improves memory and brain function.
