OPINION: Dr. Ken Romeo, 775-870-6942
Medicinal plants have been used in Oriental Medicine for thousands of years. Even today, what are termed as “medicinal plants” play an extremely important role in healthcare.
Conventional medicines are essentially poisons that either augment or stop a natural bodily function. They are typically not “additive” in affecting the human body.
It can certainly be argued that medicinal plants can cause fewer side effects and milder adverse effects than conventional pharmaceuticals.
In today’s world of nutraceutical development, the bioactive compounds within plants and herbs are extracted to produce the products for retail consumption.
A major player in nutraceutical development is a substance known as Orientin which is found in millet and bamboo leaves.
The properties of Orientin are broad in utility as Orientin has been associated with the following properties:
- Anti Inflammation
- Cardiovascular protection
I won’t be eating any bamboo leaves in the near future, but you can be sure that I have added Millet to my anti-aging diet.
Yours in Health!
