Our earliest human ancestors have found and used plants for healing dating back to pre-history. There is some evidence in the world that suggests people have been using plants for healing over 60,000 years. In 1960, the remains of a Neanderthal was found at a burial site, containing eight different species of medicinal plants, some still used today.
Plants are nature’s medicinary, and when treated with care and respect are beneficial and promote wellness. The herbs in all of the varieties of Beyond Broth are designed to encourage well- being and act synergistically with the other ingredients. Hippocrates said, “Let food be your medicine.” Edible, culinary herbs and spices such as turmeric, cumin, basil, parsley, ginger, thyme, and cayenne, often support the digestive system and circulatory system.
Incorporating herbs into your any and all parts of your diet is beneficial and supports wellness, especially preventative wellness. Herbs and spices, especially edible ones are not just medicinal- they are nourishing. They nourish the various systems and parts of the body.
When cooking, preparing a meal or a cup of tea or broth, treasure the nutritional and medicinal value of the plants. Be good to yourself, and get nature’s medicinary into your bowl!
