Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.
The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

I recently came upon an infographic containing this information by Dr. Jockers, but as usual I wanted to know more! So I did some research on these nutrients and here's what I found....
Ursolic Acid -- Found in the peels of fruits as well as in rosemary & thyme
Piperine -- An alkaloid responsible for the pungency of black pepper
Lycopene -- Bright red carotenoid found in tomatoes & other red fruits & veggies. However, it's not found in strawberries or cherries....weird huh?? Also there's no Vitamin A activity....hmmm.
Isothiocyanates -- A sulfur containing phyto chemicals. An anti-inflammatory found in types of mustard oils.
Curcumin -- The bright yellow chemical that gives turmeric it's color and the 'magick' ingredient!
EGCG -- A plant compound prominent in green tea
Resveratrol -- A type of natural phenol found in plants that respond to injury or when the plant is under attack by pathogens such as bacteria or fungi. Sources include: skins of grapes, blueberries, raspberries, mulberries or plants.
Vitamin D3 -- A fat soluble vitamin that helps the body absorb calcium & phosphorus. Important for bone development & made by the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight. 20 minutes daily is all we need for our full RDA of Vit. D3!!
6-Gingerol -- A chemical compound found in fresh ginger. A relative of capsaicin & piperine.
Silymarin -- Found in the extract of milk thistle seeds.
Quercetin -- A plant flavonol from a group of polyphenols. Found in many fruits, veggies, leaves & grains.
Anthocyanins -- A water soluble pigment that may appear red, purple, blue or black.
