Food For Fuel Not Emotion - Herb Ready

To finalize our Allergy series we are bringing you two different Herbs for the month of July; Nettles and Gingko.

I am a firm believer in mixing and matching my herbs either when I’m brewing my tea, or when I am cooking my food. I find it to be fun and challenging! Yet the end result can be very rewarding and healthy for you. So why not get your Vitamins in the purest form.

Nettles have a long history of being a potent herb. It contains protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, and magnesium, beta-carotene, along with vitamins A, C, D, and B-complex, which are all in a form that your body can use and digest.

Nettles extract are a reliable source of diuretics which is helpful with excretion of uric acid, that simultaneously discourage night time bathroom urges, which makes the herb useful in solving bedwetting problems, overnight urinary woes of benign prostate enlargement.

Not only is it good to help fight allergies, and all the other vitamins it contains. Studies show Native American women would use the herb throughout pregnancy and as a remedy to stop hemorrhaging during childbirth! To the Native American women Nettles is considered one of the best all round women’s tonics.

Ginkgo Leaf is recent, and has been studied for different things… but showed to be beneficial to cardiovascular. Gingko contains many constituents: Gibberellin, cytokinin-like substances, ginkgolic acid, bilobol, ginnol aspartine, calcium. This herb is considered to be a tonic.

This new herb is great for many things! One of the greatest things it is known for is balancing whatever maybe going on in your system. So for example: if you are tired, it will energize you, and if you are stressed it will relax you. Cause of its constituents and other substances it helps to restore the blood flow to all parts of your body but particularly to the brain, allowing improved use of oxygen.

Ginkgo helps to increase circulation which also allows maintaining energy level, giving you full benefits of all the foods you eat, vitamins and herbal supplements you take.

Please note: Our bodies don’t all react the same to Food, Vitamins, and Supplements.
