Always great information from these folks.

Chinese herbs, natural herbs and plants have numerous potent health benefits and are used in traditional medicine with a much better track record than pharmaceutical drugs with nasty side effects.

 

At the top is Aloe Vera - one of my favorites with healing benefits both externally and internally. I drink Aloe Gold everyday and have beautiful shiny hair, long nails, and my skin glows from the inside out.

 

Read the article to find out about the other powerful herbs, and plants.

Teaching Tools in Plant Biology. Medicinal Plants: Past, Present and Future

Teaching Tools in Plant Biology. Medicinal Plants: Past, Present and Future | How do People Perceive and Use Medicinal Plants? | Scoop.it

Plants produce thousands of specialized metabolites, many of which have medicinal uses. More than half of the top 150 prescribed drugs in the US have at least one compound derived from plants, and about 80% of the world's population depends on plants or plant extracts as a major source of healthcare. This lecture looks at the history of medicinal plants, herbal remedies in traditional and contemporary medicine, and ongoing efforts to identify novel medicinal compounds from plants. New approaches, such as metabolomics, metabolic engineering and systems and synthetic biology, are contributing towards the identification, characterization and production of plant-derived medicines.

Mieux préserver les plantes médicinales

LE FIGARO Sciences, Jean-Luc Nothias, 1er Octobre 2013

Ludovic Saint-Felix's insight:

PRÈS d'une plante sur cinq dans le monde est en danger d'extinction d'après le dernier rapport global sur le sujet de l'UICN qui date de 2010. Et les prévisions, au vu des changements climatiques, ne sont pas brillantes : d'ici cinquante à cent ans, des modifications très importantes de l'écologie des plantes terrestres devraient avoir lieu, avec un fort accroissement des espèces menacées. Des chercheurs américains, égyptiens et coréens attirent l'attention sur une plante rare, au potentiel pharmaceutique important (étude publiée dans les Pnas (comptes rendus de l'académie des sciences américaine).

 

Il s'agit de Diplostephium rhododendroides Hieron, une plante que l'on trouve dans les montagnes d'Équateur en Amérique du Sud. Elle produit naturellement deux catégories de molécules. Les premières (des glycosides très complexes) sont actives contre le virus de l'hépatite C. Les secondes semblent pouvoir intervenir dans le contrôle du diabète de type 2. Deux grands fléaux qui pourraient ainsi êtres plus efficacement combattus. Les chercheurs soulignent donc l'importance d'engager des actions pour sauvegarder ces plantes et les territoires où elles poussent.

 

Il est estimé que près de 60 % des médicaments contre le cancer sont dérivés de molécules produites dans la nature. Le Taxol dérivé de l'if en est un bel exemple. Et bien d'autres pathologies sont concernées, la digitaline et les maladies cardiovasculaires ou la galantamine venue du perce-neige et des jonquilles pour la maladie d'Alzheimer.

 

Mais, en 2008, un rapport de l'organisation britannique Plantlife affirmait qu'environ 15 000 des quelque 50 000 plantes médicinales étaient en danger et à risque de disparition. Pourtant, selon l'OMS, 80 % des populations des pays en voie de développement utilisent des plantes dans leur pharmacopée et leur médecine traditionnelle. J.-L. N.

Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomedicine | Abstract | Medicinal plants, traditional medicine, markets and management in far-west Nepal

Modern therapeutic medicine is historically based on indigenous therapies and ethnopharmacological uses, which have become recognized tools in the search for new sources of pharmaceuticals. Globalization of herbal medicine along with uncontrolled exploitative practices and lack of concerted conservation efforts, have pushed many of Nepal's medicinal plants to the verge of extinction. Sustainable utilization and management of medicinal plants, based on traditional knowledge, is therefore necessary.
