As a medical herbalist, I specialize in creating customized blends of herbal supplements tailored to the specific needs of my clients. Formulating these blends involves drawing on a huge variety of herbal supplements, each with proven properties that affect health and wellness. But, even if you don’t regularly take a full regime, having a basic herbal arsenal at your disposal is a great way to manage daily concerns, like low energy, lack of focus or fighting the flu, and improve overall general health. So, I boiled down my Top 10 Herbal Supplements, featuring my short-list of the most beneficial herbs out there.
1. Medicinal mushrooms. Ok, I’m already cheating since this is not actually an herb! But, medicinal mushrooms have such an amazing mix of ingredients, from immune-boosting glucans to stress-busting and anti-cancer compounds. Taking a medicinal mushroom blend, or a single all-rounder like Reshi, can help keep you from getting sick, while also providing a rich source of B-vitamins. I love Four Sigma Foods Instant Reishi, $30 for 20 convenient instant sachets.
