"Important Herba and Supplements for Seniors"
As we get older we need to have extra herbs, supplements, and foods that give us lots of energy and vitality and slow the aging process. Here are 6 vital elements that are important to for great energy so we can live to be 100 years old and feel like 30.
Astragalus Root - Astragalus root grows in China and East Asia and has been used for over 2,000 years. It's great for having more energy, vitality, and for boosting up our immune system. And it also works as a great anti-inflammatory, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, for wound healing, cancer fighting agent, diabetes, old age fatigue, multiple chemical sensitivity, herpes, anemia, kidney disease, adrenal fatigue, heart disease, liver challenges, allergies, helps with the symptoms of chemotherapy, lowers stomach acid... and it has no side effects. I recommend taking 1 or 2 - 500 mg capsules daily for 7 days and then take a week off and come back to it.
Goji Berries - Goji berries have been used for healing for hundreds of years. First grown in Asia and especially the high mountains of China these wonderful berries are very healing for many health challenges. Goji Berries have given long life to men like Li Qing Yuen in China who was born in 1678 and died in 1930 thus lived to be 252 years old. His daily consumption of Goji berries increased his lifespan and vitality. And scientists have looked over the evidence for Li Qing Yuen's long life and verified all the claims. Complex long chain sugars of the Goji berry coat the cell wall (the cell wall handles nutrients that go into the cell and waste products are removed from the cell and how the living tissue reacts to the world.) thus healthier cell is created able to deal with stress, diseases, and and even toxins. Goji has more vitamin C than oranges and contains a large amount of vitamins B and E. Plus over 20 trace minerals, and more than 18 different amino acids. Goji lowers cholesterol, helps with inflammation, promotes nervous system health, balances hormones, reduce blood pressure, help with PMS, and helps with cancer. Goji is also antibacterial, anti-fungal, and also a good immune booster, and it helps with hepatitis symptoms. Goji also helps with memory, allergies, skin problems, helps with arthritis, gastritis, oral health, eye health and more. I recommend eating 30 to 40 dried goji berries every morning.
Gotu Kola - Gotu Kola is a wonderful herb that grows all over the world and has many powerful health benefits... and is considered by many to be a true super adaptogenic herb.
Gotu Kola is one of the most powerful antioxidants on the market and also a great anti-inflammatory agent thus helping with arthritis.
Gotu Kola helps with stress and the regeneration of the adrenal glands and also boosts your memory capacity, focus, concentration, and some say intelligence too... plus it helps with depression and mood enhancement. In studies mice given gotu kola they were able to learn much faster... between 3 to 60% faster than the control group. And in studies done on children with learning disabilities they were able to concentrate better, adjusted to surroundings faster, and were more attentive.
Gotu Kola works wonders for nervousness, insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks and the effects of old age, and it also improves digestion and allows you to feel full of energy. In studies with older people given gotu kola they had less stress and depression in general. It also lowers blood pressure, strengthens the liver and kidneys, and helps with urinary tract infections. It also strengthens the walls of blood vessels and arteries and helps with the prevention of strokes... and studies show that gotu kola can protect brain tissue from damage caused by strokes. Gotu Kola has also been used for treating dementia, Alzheimer's Disease, seizures, and even MS. I recommend taking 1 - 400 mg capsule every morning for 7 days and then take a week off and come back to it.
Cordyceps Mushroom - Cordyceps is a small mushroom that grows in the high Himalayan Mountains which has powerful healing attributes. Cordyceps helps the body utilize oxygen more efficiently, improves kidney function by 51%, it's great for asthma and bronchitis, and also other respiratory problems, helps with heart rhythm disturbances, fights fatigue and tired legs, increases stamina, provides more energy, builds libido and sex drive, helps with fertility, improves athletic performance, repairs DNA damage, boost the immune system, increases production of NK cells, more muscle mass, lowers cholesterol, protects the liver, plus improves blood cell function... and more. I recommend taking 1 - 400 mg capsules every morning for 7 days and then take a week off and come back to it.
Protect Plus One Vitamin - As far as supplements go in order to provide the body with all the vitamins and minerals we need taking a good vitamin is very important. I have a good friend who formulated this vitamin and it's was the first prescription vitamin on the market. Protect Plus One is a powerful vitamin, talk to your pharmacist about a none prescription equivalent. Take one of these vitamins as least 3 times a week.
Whole Foods Plant Based Diet - There have been many people who have taken their parents and put them on a whole foods plant based diet and within 30 days they were more active, had more energy, their aches and pains disappear and they were rejuvenated and given a fresh start on life. Plants are life giving and thus and we have thousands of articles showing that a plant-based diet is extremely healthy.
