The next herb we will discuss is Number 9 – Rosemary.
You love the smell of rosemary, but did you know it also has many health benefits? Rosemary contains polyphenols and terpenes, two powerful antioxidants that can help stop free radical responses that lead to inflammation in your body. With better blood flow as a result of using this herb, there is increased oxygen for your brain which helps combat diabetes-related neuropathy or nerve damage from high glucose levels in the bloodstream.
Next, we definitely have to mention our Number 8 – St. John’s Wort.
St. John’s wort is an important herb that has been used for centuries to treat nerve pain and other conditions of the nervous system. Studies show it can relieve acute thermal and chemical pain, as well as nerve injury, including that related to chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain. It also repairs the nerve sheath, making it an effective herb for long term results. You can take St Hohn’s Wort as a tincture, capsule or a tea.
The next herb that’s good for your nerves is Number 7 – Lemon Balm.
This citrusy herb is called “lemon balm” because it gives off a strong scent that has been known to help with nervous system disorders. Lemon Balm balances levels of neurotransmitters in your brain, including GABA and serotonin. This can improve moods as well as cognitive performance! Drinking this tea or taking supplements is healthful for you – take your pick!
