Super Herbs For Super Health!

There are many super herbs that have incredible health benefits such as improving the immune system, anti-inflammatory benefits, keeping blood sugar under control and lowering cholesterol. Today we will look at turmeric, garlic and aloe vera and some of their healing properties. Have you done any research about the best healing herbs?

If so, you may have discovered that turmeric is a super herb that deserves it’s place at the top of the list. This strong Indian spice has been used medicinally for over 4,500 years, and it’s in the same plant family as ginger. In the last few years, turmeric has reappeared within the health and wellness arena due to curcumin, the healing substance which supplies its bright color. Curcumin has significant anti-inflammatory properties that are said to strongly compete with those found in ibuprofen, and it can soothe your tummy by balancing the acids in your stomach.

 

Garlic has been used to improve the immune system, help manage inflammatory joint disease as well as reduce arthritis symptoms. The high levels of selenium in garlic are much greater than other plants. This healing herb helps the body by boosting the ability of white blood cells to fight infections, and by stimulating other immune cells which fight viral and bacterial infections.
I grew up with  mom and dad cutting opening an aloe vera leaf and placing the gel on a cut or burn. They learned from their parents and grandparents, and I never heard the word anti-bacterial… but they knew it would help. It was not until many years later that I learned of the many other healing benefits of this plant. Aloe vera is also high in antioxidants, and is great for sunburns. It is often used in cosmetics and skin care products.
