Herbs for organs

I find this picture useful as a quick reference chart on which herbs are specifically beneficial for which organs. 

I noted that ginseng, ginkgo biloba, cayenne pepper and kelp are good for the brain, and I found out from this article some details on how ginseng and ginkgo biloba boost brain power. 

"Researchers showed that ginkgo biloba can improve the power of concentration, while ginseng sharpens up the memory.

The effect was even more powerful if the two herbs were taken together."

I noted that cacao, turmeric, motherwort and garlic are good for the heart. This article below says that turmeric appears to improve heart health as much as moderate aerobic exercise. I will keep in mind to continue eating food regularly with curry or spices that contain turmeric to enjoy such benefits, where possible. 

(NaturalNews) "A chemical that naturally occurs in turmeric root appears to improve heart health as much as moderate aerobic exercise, according to a trio of studies conducted by researchers from the University of Tsukuba in Japan."

I noted that mullein, yarrow, Yerba Santa and peppermint are good for the lungs, and milk thistle, dandelion, artichoke and burdock root are good for the liver (I think the shape of the organ looks like a liver, if I am not wrong). According to this article "Yarrow is also a great herb for the digestion, improving the circulation in and around the digestive tract as a whole". 

I also noted that Chamomile, licorice, goldenseal and fennel are good for the stomach, and ginger, bilberry, cranberry and astralagus are good for the kidneys. This article below elaborates by saying chamomile is effective in treating stomach and intestinal cramps. 

"Chamomile has been found to contain fairly strong antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory constituents and is particularly effective in treating stomach and intestinal cramps."
