Herbal Meds Guide


A Useful Guide to Herbal Medicines

The recent changes to how herbal supplements are sold means that most herbal medicines must be fully licensed as medicines. With this in mind, the following infographic looks at the most popular herbal medicines you can buy and how they can help certain ailments and illnesses. If you're suffering from cold or flu, you want relief that's gentle on your body, Echinacea Cold & Flu Relief (THR) is a traditional herbal medicine which can help relieve symptoms of the common cold and influenza, based on traditional use. Echinacea contains dried, pressed juice from fresh flowering Echinacea purpurea – a combination of natural ingredients that could provide your body with extra ammunition against those winter bugs. It's advised to take Echinacea in its recommended dosage (for adults, elderly and children over 12 years that’s one or two capsules a day) at the first signs of illness.


With Christmas around the corner it's good to know that milk thistle can provide a natural way to help cure an upset stomach. A registered traditional herbal medicine, Milk Thistle is extracted from the fruits of the milk thistle herb. Based on traditional use only, it's been proven to relieve the symptoms associated with the occasional over-indulgence of food and drink.
