More and more consumers are curious about, and starting to explore, herbal (botanical) medicine.
The most basic way to start using herbs for your health is to drink teas with specific herbs for your health concerns.
Herbs, including spices, can also be used in foods and recipes that support overall health and wellness goals.
At this point, you may be wondering what the difference is between herbs and spices. Basically, herbs are from the green, leafy parts of plants. Common herbs include basil, rosemary, sage, thyme, parsley, and oregano. Spices come from the root, stem, seed, fruit, flower or bark of trees and plants. Popular spices include cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, and turmeric.
Herbs and spices sometimes interact with prescription medications. For that matter, fruits (such as grapefruit) may interact with medications as well.
