The human body benefits the most from medicinal herbs when they are steeped and ingested as a tea. Capsules and pills do not work as well, as they do not allow for the absorption of minerals the way a tea does.

Please know that - while there are many wonderful benefits to medicinal herbs - there are certain side effects from taking too many medicinal herbs or for using them when certain other medical problems are present.
