We often get asked, “I really want to improve my health, but I’m new to using herbs. Where do I start?”
Great question! Unless you have a specific health need that calls for what we refer to as Direct Aid herbs, the best place to start is with daily use herbs to help keep your health balanced and in tip top condition.
“Use herbs every day?” we get asked. That’s right. Certain herbs are great for daily use. You see, herbs can be one of your best health supports when you use those that specifically help to build your health.
Health building herbs have what we call ‘phytonutrients.’ Phyto is the Greek word for plant. Phytonutrients, also called phytochemicals, are beneficial nutrients found in plants that are good for our health and help our bodies to function properly.
Plants produce phytochemicals to stay healthy themselves, and when we ingest them, these phytonutrients help us stay healthy, as well. Also, along with your daily use of healthful herbs, do make sure you are eating plenty of fresh veggies, especially colorful ones, to get more of those wonderful phytonutrients that your body is craving.
Some of the herbs that are full of phytonutrients you can use on a daily basis to build your health (alone or mix-and-match together) are stinging nettle leaf, alfalfa leaf, elderberry, dandelion leaf, green tea leaf, parsley leaf, rosehips and peppermint leaf.
Cedar Bear has several herbal blends specifically formulated to help build and support your health on a daily basis. You’ll love the way they taste, and even more, love the way you feel when you use them on a regular basis. Remember, all Cedar Bear herbal products are totally alcohol-free, and have only the herb, water, and glycerin in them. Nothing else.
