As we age, many of us experience frailty, or a decline in our overall fitness. Unfortunately, frailty is associated with poor quality of life and poorer surgical outcomes, as well as, of course, with reduced physical and mental stamina. While proper nutrition, exercise, and cognitive engagement are all important factors for maintaining elder fitness, botanicals are key as well. This webinar will focus on several herbs that can help support seniors in staying sharp and strong to fend off frailty, so they can keep feeling fit and healthy through the years.*
Botanicals to be discussed:
Gentiana spp. (Gentian)
Avena sativa (Oats)
Astragalus membranaceus (Astragalus)
Ocimum sanctum (Holy Basil, Tulsi)
Crataegus oxycantha (Hawthorn)
Hericium erinaceus (Lion’s Mane mushroom)
