The therapeutic powers of herbs to support women’s health

Holistic medicine recognizes that our physical well-being depends on our mental health, AND vice versa. Along with our wonderfully balanced multi-herb formulations, Peekay’s Herbs also offers a range of single-herb products that are great for supporting women’s mental and physical wellness.

Some of our all-time favorite single herbs are genuine Wild Ginseng, Saffron, and Albizia. Let’s see what the research says.

Wild Ginseng
Wild Ginseng is renowned for reducing fatigue and enhancing overall vitality. Research shows that ginseng may improve cognitive function and effectively treat mild cognitive impairment in women due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties (Rinwa & Kumar, 2014). Additionally, ginseng has been found to play a protective role against neurodegenerative processes, potentially aiding in the prevention of stress-related mental health issues.

Saffron is another powerful herb with significant benefits for mental health, particularly in treating depressive symptoms. A comprehensive meta-analysis revealed that saffron intake significantly reduces depression and anxiety scores. Specifically, it lowers Beck Depression Inventory and Beck Anxiety Inventory scores, demonstrating its effectiveness as a natural antidepressant and anxiolytic agent (Ghaderi et al., 2020). This makes saffron an excellent choice for women experiencing mood fluctuations and depressive states.

Albizia, often called the “herb of happiness,” is used for its calming effects, alleviating anxiety and stress. Studies indicate that extracts from Albizia not only have potential antipsychotic properties but also demonstrate significant neuroprotective effects. These include reducing oxidative stress and improving emotional and psychological resilience, making it a valuable herb for managing everyday mental stresses (Amoateng et al., 2017).
