In Ayurveda, ashwagandha (Withania somnifera, Solanaceae) is considered to be a Rasayana, i.e., a rejuvenator. It has been studied for its effects on cognition, mood, joint health, and inflammation. It contains alkaloids, lactones (withanolides), and glycosides, but it is not clear which constituents account for its adaptogenic qualities. The root is the most used part in traditional practice but leaves also contain many bioactive constituents, so some research has begun to explore the use of ashwagandha leaf. Several recent studies have looked at ashwagandha as an athletic performance enhancer, with encouraging results. In this double-blind, randomized controlled trial, the researchers explored the effect of an aqueous extract of ashwagandha leaf and root (Sensoril; Natreon, Inc.; New Brunswick, New Jersey) on exercise outcomes over a 12-week period. The primary outcome measures changed in upper and lower body muscle strength. Secondary outcome measures were changes in body composition, recovery…

Cardamom is the Queen of Spices and has grown lavishly under the tropical canopy on hillsides in the Ghat Mountains on the Malabar Coast of southern India to be harvested by hand and shipped around the world. The cardamom familiar to India and the western world is called green cardamom and it, along with several other types such as giant cardamom, black cardamom, and bastard cardamom, have been used for cooking, perfumery, incense, and medicine since very early in history.
Ancient Egyptians used it frequently for perfume along with frankincense, myrrh, cinnamon, and cassia, and had a recipe for an ointment called “Oil of Lilies” that included the scent from 1000 lilies. It is often mentioned as one of the ingredients of the ancient incense kyphi. Cardamom essential oil is one of the oldest essential oils known in perfumery and in the apothecary. Cardamom is the third most expensive spice after saffron…

Finding a three-leaf clover may bring good luck, but taking red clover as a healing herb may bring even better fortune!
People have appreciated the therapeutic qualities of the red clover’s pink and red-hued blossom for generations. Women, in particular, have passed down its secrets as a remedy for feminine issues, whether premenstrual syndrome or menopause symptoms.
In modern times, scientific research has backed up its traditional uses, including supporting bone strength, blood health, hair growth, and mental wellness. For women, red clover might also offer support for symptoms of menopause; for men, it’s believed to encourage a healthy prostate.
What Is Red Clover?
Red clover (Trifolium pratense) — also known as cow clover, meadow clover, or wild clover — is a legume found in Europe, Western Asia, and northwest Africa. Red clover contains isoflavones. Isoflavones are a type of phytoestrogens, which are chemicals that are similar to the hormone estrogen…

Hidden life beneath the snow and ice…… What discovery could fit Imbolc better than this? Scientists in Antarctica have discoveredliving bacteria, as well as animal bodies, in the permanent darkness of pockets of water beneath hundreds of meters of ice in Antarctica! Unlike our winter which is months long for most of us, these have not seen the light of day for thousands of years!
The life exists, hidden beneath the snow. Gathering strength, yet hidden in many ways. How long and harsh will this winter be? Can traditions of groundhogs or candles tell us? I recently saw a Pagans personalized Wheel of the Year, and they had Imbolc labelled as “Brightening”, opposite the sacred holiday of “Dimming”. I think these are great names – though the change does start at the Solstices, it’s later that the change begins to be noticeable. These and many other themes…

New treatment approaches are needed to prevent cognitive decline and dementia in the growing elderly population. Several traditionally used medicinal plants have been reported to enhance cognitive function and improve brain health through their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties. Among those plants are sage (Salvia officinalis, Lamiaceae), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis, Lamiaceae), and Melissa (lemon balm; Melissa officinalis, Lamiaceae). Although study findings support the traditional use of these plants individually for cognitive function, no study has examined the clinical effects of a combination of sage, rosemary, and Melissa (SRM) on memory. These authors conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled pilot trial to evaluate the effects of an SRM combination on verbal recall in healthy participants.
The study was conducted at Dilston Physic Garden Centre and BodyWorks Therapy Center in Northumberland, United Kingdom (the dates of the study are not given) and included healthy participants who were aged…

Snow fungus (TF; Tremella fuciformis, Tremellaceae) is a mushroom with a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine. It is used for enhancing cognition, promoting healthy brain aging, and preventing neurodegenerative disorders. The bioactive polysaccharides in TF have demonstrated antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating, lipid-lowering, and hypoglycemic effects. According to the authors, TF has not been studied clinically for improving cognition. Subjective cognitive impairment (SCI) is defined as having a self-perceived cognitive problem, despite cognitive test measurements within a normal range. This population is thought to be a target for early intervention to prevent future development of neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease. The authors conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of oral TF in participants with SCI.
Participants (n=75, aged 40-65 years) were recruited through local advertisements in Seoul, Korea. Included participants had ≥12 years of education and SCI, but no…
