Herbal Therapy for Neurological Health

Turmeric

It has been discovered that people in India have a very low incidence of neurological diseases. Researchers have identified turmeric as a spice which may have a protective effect on the brain and nervous system.

Curcumin, the active component of turmeric, works to thwart the progression of demyelinization. It is also a potent anti-inflammatory agent. While the work remains preliminary, it doesn't hurt to add this spice to the daily diet.

   

Ginkgo Biloba

In another experiment with mice, gingko biloba increased the lifespan of mice with ALS. Gingko is a potent antioxidant, and it protects the mitochondria (energy producing cells).

We carry a standardized extract of Ginkgo Biloba that comes in a 250 capsule container - good enough for 250 servings.

It contains no additives or preservatives of any kind and is preferably taken with meals.

Ginseng

In experiments with mice, ginseng was given to mice with a defect in the SOD gene. Compared to controls, there was a delay in the onset of signs of motor impairment. These experiements lend support to the use of ginseng root in ALS. (Available at your local health food store.)
