Antiaging herbs often led to the discovery of many modern drugs.
Drugs such as aspirin, opium, quinine, and digitalis were all derived from herbs.
Throughout our long distant past, people have always been trying to find solutions to illnesses and things like antiaging herbs have now been developed into what has now become our modern drugs industry.
Many drugs were developed from some form of herb.
The trend has been to try and synthesise or artificially make a copy of any successful herbal discovery, patent it and market it.
There is a large number of modern pharmaceuticals which were originally derived from herbs but have now been further refined, artificially synthesised and given Latin names.
A few years ago before the advent of our powerful drugs industry, chemists had rows of bottles filled with herbal extracts.
Doctors wrote out a prescription containing sometimes 4 or 5 herbal extracts which the chemist proceeded make into a medicine which was supplied to the customer in a bottle. In some countries chemists were called druggists.

There is an important thing you need to know, all drugs are poisonous. All drugs have an “LD Rating”
What is an LD rating?
Simply it is the amount of a drug which can be taken before it becomes dangerous.
However time moves on and new discoveries are being made.
A lot of emphasis is now being placed on stem cells which I am sure will have a huge effect on our future health.
First of all we need to differentiate between adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells.
Great progress is now happening using adult stem cells whereas attempts to use embryonic stem cells has so far been a complete failure.
One of the most successful adult stem cells discoveries has come from the work of a Canadian scientist Christian Drapeau MSc,
He after several years of research has succeeded in isolating a natural product which has proven to be capable of increasing the stem cells in our blood stream by a very significant amount.

Why is this important?
It is now scientifically proven that the quantity of stem cells circulating in our blood stream plays a major part in the ability of our body to repair itself.
See anti aging supplement.
Great progress is now being achieved with adult stem cells after the previous great disappointments that occurred trying to use embryonic stem cells.
For information, the greatest problem with embryonic cells is due to their likelihood to become cancerous.
Antiaging herbs come in many varieties, however I can assure you this subject is going to become a very important one.
