Herbs for Weight Loss
Cayenne is becoming increasingly popular for use in cooking. It adds spice and flavour to food and helps to stimulate and increase the rates for digestion and metabolism. It is very safe to use and is sold as a powder.
Seaweed is also becoming increasingly popular in Asian cooking. It has trace minerals such as iodine and stimulates the thyroid. It can be bought in its natural form or as a supplement in capsule or tablet form. I don’t think it is classed as a herb as such but it is great for boosting the metabolism!
Green tea is a natural stimulant and has compounds that are antioxidants. It can be purchased in tea bag form or loose crushed leaves and steeped in water. It can also be purchased in capsule form, but is less effective. Many of the commercial weight loss products will contain some or a mix of herbs for weight loss along with other synthetic ingredients. So it is always best to check the ingredients list before buying.
Herbs for Depression
There are several herbs that seem to be particularly effective for treating depression. They include St. John's Wort, Gingko Biloba, Kava Kava, Valerian Root, or 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan.) There are a few things to note before trying any of these. Keep in mind that if you do decide to try one of these herbs for depression you may react differently than someone else who has tried the same herb. In other words, what may work for one, might not work for another. It may take some trial and error before you find one that works for you. It is also important to realize that too much of anything is not a good thing. You can overdose on herbal remedies. Also, it is very important to consult your physician before you try any type of new medicinal treatment, natural or otherwise, because you never know how it may interact with other medications that you might be taking.
