The three herbs I am going to talk about are recognizable by most people as foods, confirming Dr. Christopher’s saying of “let foods be your medicine”.
Broad Bean is one that jumped out to me as I was not familiar with its medicinal use before adding the page. Broad Beans contain Lysine which helps to build immunity and combat and prevent fever blisters and herpes. Broad Beans contain L-dopamine, known to correct Parkinson's Disease and other shaking disorders. We have Broad Bean available in extract and bulk whole bean.
I love “juicing” but often don’t have the time to prepare the vegetables, much less juice them. Green smoothies are a much quicker option for me. But sometimes my green smoothies end up being a rather unattractive unappetizing color. I have found a great solution to the color problem and have been adding Beet root powder to my smoothies. Beet root is rich in minerals: potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulfur, iodine, iron, manganese, chlorine, and copper, as well as traces of the rare metals rubidium and caesium; vitamins B1, B2, niacin, B6, B12, C, P, and beta carotene; flavonoids; and amino acids. I am adding a more palatable “color” to my smoothies as well as an abundance of nutrients. Beet root is available in bulk powder and vegicaps.
Another single bulk herb that I like to add to my smoothies to improve
the color as well as nutrient value is Acai Berry powder, though more often I add it to my Jurassic Green concoction for the added flavor. Acai Berry may be the world’s most powerful anti-aging food. Acai Berries possess an unmatched ability to absorb free radicals that attack the body and contribute to the aging process and disease. High in Anthocyanins which have been shown to restore mental function, concentration, memory and mental clarity. Due to their ability to protect the brain from free radical damage and their support of healthy, cellular tissue growth, anthocyanins are reputed to be one of the most valuable anti-aging antioxidants known. Acai Berry is available in organic bulk powder and vegicaps.
I hope that you will enjoy using these foods as herbs as much as I do. Broad Bean, Beet root and Acai Berry are just a few of the great herbs that we have available at Herbs First.
