Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
At Napiers, we offer a range of herbal and natural products that can help support urinary tract health and prevent UTIs. For instance, our team may recommend cranberry supplements, which are known for their ability to prevent the adherence of bacteria to the urinary tract walls, reducing the risk of infection. We may also suggest D-mannose, a natural sugar that can help prevent bacteria from adhering to the urinary tract and flush them out of the body. Additionally, our team may advise on lifestyle changes such as staying hydrated, maintaining good hygiene practices, and avoiding irritants that can trigger UTIs.
Fertility & Pregnancy
There are a number of products and herbs that can support fertility and pregnancy. Fertility-enhancing herbs such as Vitex agnus-castus (chaste tree), can help regulate hormonal imbalances and support the menstrual cycle. We may also suggest maca root, a traditional herb known for its ability to support hormonal balance and reproductive health.
For pregnancy, prenatal vitamins and minerals, including folic acid, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids, all support foetal development and maternal health.
Hormone Health and Menopause
Herbs such as black cohosh, red clover, and dong quai, are known for their ability to support the balance of hormones and alleviate menopause symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. We may also suggest supplements such as evening primrose oil, which can help support hormonal balance and promote overall well-being during menopause. In addition, lifestyle modifications, including stress management techniques, regular exercise, and healthy nutrition, can also play a crucial role in supporting hormonal health and managing menopause symptoms.
A trust kept since 1860
Napiers the Herbalists was founded by Duncan Napier, who despite being abandoned at birth, went on to become an eminent Victorian botanist and the most famous herbalist in Scotland. His legacy lives on.
