The mysterious world of herbs and spices can seem a little daunting, with so many substances that are said to possess health benefits. Of course, there are far too many to mention in this article, so we have selected a few that are commonly used to improve health.
1. Burdock root –
This has been used as a health tonic for centuries and is native to parts of Asia and Europe. The root is typically harvested in the autumn when the leaves are grey and it is ground to a powder and used to make tea, which is believed to be a tonic that helps balance hormones.
2. Cinnamon chips –
Of course, we all know and love cinnamon, yet you may not be aware that cinnamon chips, which are made from the bark, are also used for medicinal purposes. The tree grows in parts of southern China and it is believed to promote good health and well-being. If you would like a sample of cinnamon chips, search online for an Australian herbs & spices wholesaler and they would be happy to send samples of any item you would like to try.
3. Echinacea –
Organic echinacea has long been used to make tea in Canada and North America, which does soothe a sore throat, and relieves symptoms of cold and flu, while also reducing blood pressure. If you would like to try this herb, search the web for an Australian herbs & spices supplier and ask for a sample. You can also order in bulk quantities from a wholesale supplier.
4. Ground moringa leaf –
One of the richest herbs on the planet, moringa leaf is very rich in nutrients, with more Vitamin A than carrots and more Vitamin C than oranges; the herb is also high in calcium, fiber, and protein, making it a firm favorite with all.
