Nature offers a large selection of plants that can heal or help many health problems. However, discovering the benefits of each plant extract continues to be a challenge while regulations often add more obstacles. Nevertheless, a registered pharmacist recently shared her list of beneficial plants and herbs for a variety of medical conditions.
Many plant extracts are viewed as natural remedies, but they can still be found on store shelves in neatly packaged bottles next to the vitamins or minerals. Their availability contributes to the large health industry that has formed around natural treatments. Although it is still important to read labels, research ingredients and check recalls, more people are turning to plants as their salvation.
