Herbal remedies in their many available forms may seem complicated, but the principle is a simple one. Your body views plants as food and utilizes them very efficiently, taking almost all the valuable active principles and organic compounds right into your body’s cells. In contrast, your body does not recognize synthetic drugs as food and often utilizes only 5 to 10% of what you take in, leaving the rest to float around in your bloodstream and cause unpleasant side effects.
The article link below alerts you that being familiar with the different forms of herbal supplements can help you make the best choice for your personal use. Not all herbs are completely safe. Don’t assume that you can safely take more than the recommended dose of any herb without unpleasant, or possibly harmful, results. But there’s no need to fear herbs either; just be aware and informed about herbs and how they can help your body reach and maintain a state of wellness.
Herbal supplements are available in several convenient forms and are safe and effective when used according to package directions; they are not mysterious at all, just a natural, healthy aid to achieving optimum health.
