The Benefits of Supplemental Extracts

Aug 17, 2007
Taking supplemental vitamins is nothing like popping a Tylenol for pain or antibiotic for infection. A supplemental vitamin helps maintain your health and ensure that you get the vitamins you need. You may already get enough of certain vitamins which is why you can buy individual supplements of just about anything you can think of. If you are looking to improve your memory, try ginkgo biloba. For healthy skin try lupine extract. This article will explore the benefits of a few different types of supplements on the market today.

Pomegranate extract supplements
As one of the most power antioxidant supplements on the market today, pomegranate extract is touted to be not only an antioxidant, but also an anti-cancer and anti-viral substance. One of the most important benefits of taking pomegranate in extract form is that you aren't taking in the extra calories that you would in juice form. This is especially important for diabetics or those who want to take pomegranate long term as a dietary supplement. Many studies also indicate that consistent pomegranate use is linked to a drastic decrease in the risk of prostate cancer.

Rosemary extract
When bought in liquid form, rosemary extract can be a powerful supplemental herb. A couple of drops mixed with beef will hinder carcinogenic compounds from being formed on the BBQ. Rosemary extract can also be rubbed on the skin to help circulation and tighten the skin. There have also been studies that rosemary extract pills may help with prostate health and fighting cancers.

Ginkgo biloba extract
Ginkgo is well known as a memory-enhancing agent and is most commonly found in supplemental pill form. The plant originates from China and has a long history of medical uses. It is also thought to be a mild aphrodisiac, Alzheihmer's cure and a great antioxidant.

Echinacea
Echinacea is widely used to help the immune system, as an antibiotic and to purify the blood. It is typically sold in supplemental pill form, but it makes an outstanding herbal tea as well. There are many manufacturers that have an Echinacea tea so it is very easy to find online or in your local supermarket.

St. John's Wort
St. John's Wort is used to fight depression, anxiety and other mental disorders. Over the ages, it has been used for a few other things, but mainly for mental disorders. Recent studies have shown that it may not be as powerful as once thought in combating these illnesses, however, St. John's Wort has many followers, including medical professionals that stand by it's uses.

As you can see, there are a wide variety of uses and benefits of extracts. The even better news is that this is just a very partial list of supplements available. Other powerful extracts include: Bilberry, Boswellia, Cranberry, Elderberry, Eyebright, Goldenseal, Grapeseed, Milk Thistle, Tea Tree Oil, and many, many more.
