Herbal medicine is the theoretical part of herbology which uses scientific examination of the constituents of medicinal herbal remedies to determine how herbs work to support, maintain, and promote health, wellness, and well-being.
Herbal Medicine is Herbal Biochemistry
Herbal medicine may use the empirical hands-on traditional and cultural uses of herbs within herbalism for guidance in biochemical research to find the unique constituents and discover the properties that are responsible for the promotion of health benefits in specific systems, organs, glands, tissues, and cells.
The main properties of medicinal herbal remedies are biochemically researched to identify how their various unique constituents work, not only by their essential nutrients, like vitamins and minerals.
Tea is a commonly used medicinal remedy that is examined and studied for the biochemical polyphenol catechin constituents, called EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), which has medicinal properties that include antioxidant, vascular heart health, liver health, and fat metabolism boosting benefits.
Chamomile flowers contain azulene essential oils that calm the nerves, soothe minor irritation in the digestive track, maintain vascular tissue, and support digestion.
