For centuries, people have known of the power of herbs and other botanicals for treating a wide variety of health ailments and conditions. As part of their natural metabolic activities, herbs synthesize many kinds of complex chemical compounds. Many relate to the plant's energy production. Others are toxins that are created to protect the plant from animals or parasites. Quite a few of these compounds, when consumed, can have a beneficial effect.
Herbal supplements typically are used for specific ailments and concerns. There are herbs that are believed to support the immune system, and others that are used to purify and detoxify the body and its vital organs. Some support the brain and neurologic function, while others increase energy, support sexual health, speed up metabolism and improve mood. For example, ginkgo biloba, a Chinese herb, contains flavone glycosides, which is a unique substance that is thought to reverse age related mental decline.
