Herbs for Healthy Ageing
Ageing is a natural part of life that comes with its own set of challenges, including chronic conditions, reduced energy levels, and skin changes. But what if you could age more gracefully with the help of nature's pharmacy?
Herbs have been the cornerstone of natural medicine for centuries, offering a myriad of health benefits without the long list of side-effects commonly associated with synthetic drugs.
The Top Herbs for Healthy Ageing
Curcumin, the active component in turmeric, is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.
It has been studied for its potential to combat chronic conditions like arthritis and heart disease. Some research even suggests that it could play a role in preventing age-related cognitive decline.
We recommend Napiers Organic Turmeric Gold Alcohol Free Tincture Drops. They are a convenient way to ensure a high-quality therapeutic dose of turmeric, and easy to incorporate into your daily routine.
Ginseng is renowned for its adaptogenic properties, which means it helps the body adapt to stress, a critical factor in mental health as we age.
Korean Red Ginseng, in particular, has shown promise in boosting energy levels and enhancing cognitive function in older adults.
We recommend Napiers Korean Red Ginseng Tincture. Extracts such as tinctures or essences offer a convenient alternative to herbal teas.
It's also been studied for its potential benefits in improving sleep quality, another common concern among older adults.
In addition to stress and sleep management, Ashwagandha has also been researched for its potential to increase muscle mass and strength, making it an excellent choice for older adults looking to maintain physical vitality.
We recommend Napiers Ashwagandha Root Tincture, as an easy way to incorporate this herb into your routine. Take up to 5 ml, 3 times a day in a little water, unless otherwise told by a qualified herbal medicine practitioner.
Black Cohosh is a go-to remedy for hormonal imbalances, especially during menopause. It is commonly used to alleviate symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, and mood swings. While not a direct substitute for oestrogen, it does interact with serotonin receptors to help regulate body temperature and mood.
We recommend Napiers Midlife Mix. This herbal blend has been formulated by herbalists specifically to support those experiencing menopause symptoms.
Best known for its potential to enhance memory and cognitive function, Ginkgo Biloba improves blood flow to the brain and acts as an antioxidant.
Some studies suggest it may help improve symptoms of dementia and other cognitive impairments.
Additionally, Ginkgo Biloba is often recommended for improving eye health, as it enhances blood flow to the eyes and may help counteract age-related macular degeneration.
Our Napiers Organic Ginkgo Leaf Alcohol Free Tincture Drops are a convenient way of adding Gingko into your routine.
