5 Most Loved Botanical Medicines

Botanical medicine, also known as herbal medicine, is the science and practice of using medicinal plants and extracts to improve overall health, support wellness, and treat diseases. Herbal medicine was once termed primitive by western medicine but through scientific investigations, there is a better understanding of its therapeutic activities meaning that many pharmaceuticals have been modeled on phytochemicals derived from it. Thus, many conventional pharmaceutical drugs are derived from plants.
