Aging brings many changes: physical, psychological, hormonal, even cultural. Wrinkles develop around our eyes, we forgot the occasional name and getting around isn’t as easy as it used to be. As we age, our immune systems also become less efficient, leaving our bodies more susceptible to free radicals. At this stage ini life, herbs can be a big help. Packed with antioxidants, these nine anti-aging herbs have been shown to boost brain power, protect eyes, relieve joint pain and treat a number of other age-related ailments.

Anti-Aging Herbs

Ginkgo is one of a handful of go-to anti-aging herbs. Because it improves circulation to the brain, ginkgo can boost brain function as we age. Studies have shown that ginkgo helps improve memory, protect brain cells and repair nerve tissue damage in the brain. Take 120 mg two to three times daily.

Gotu kola is another anti-aging herb that can improve brain health. Long used in Ayurvedic medicine to improve memory, studies have shown that this rejuvenating tonic herb can increase mental abilities and behavioral patterns. Take 600 mg of dried powered leaves three time a day.

Milk thistle offers protection for aging livers. The high number of environmental toxins that we encounter every day puts extra stress on our liver, which is responsible for filtering out all those toxins. Milk thistle produces an ingredient called silymarin, which protects the liver by preventing damage and encouraging growth of new cells. Take 175 mg of this anti-aging herb two to three times a day. (For more on strengthening your liver to help it remove toxins from your body, check out this excerpt from Debra Lynn Dadd’s book “Toxin Free.”)
