Herbs are plants used as natural health foods or as alternative medicine. They are used for cleansing, for nutrition and support for certain organs and systems and as natural medicine. 

Herbs can be consumed raw, with foods, dehydrated and made into tea or powdered in capsules, or made into an herbal extract or an essential oil, individually or as part of an herbal formula. 

The phytonutrients in herbs have special benefits for improving health. Many of today's nutraceuticals contain herbs, and several common pharmaceuticals were derived initially from herbs. 

Certain plants provide powerful compounds that can assist the body in correcting imbalances. Cordyceps tones organs and improves stamina. Turmeric has highly beneficial antioxidants, especially curcumin, to counter inflammation by free radicals. Aloe vera is soothing and healing to the skin as well as internal lining tissues such as the digestive tract. St. Johnswort calms the nerves and supports emotional well-being. Larrea tridentata interrupts the action of viruses and other invaders.
