Aging can be difficult for many people. However, as you grow older, it is possible to feel confident, energetic and happy by making use of anti-aging remedies and lifestyle hacks.

There are a variety of natural herbal remedies that have wide-ranging anti-aging benefits. These herbs can be used to help combat many of the negative effects of aging.

Here are a few of the best herbs you can use as natural anti-aging remedies:


Ginseng, of both the American and Asian varieties, is known to have a few different anti-aging benefits. It can help increase stamina and boost mental performance. It can also help counteract the effects of stress. Those that take ginseng regularly also find stamina increases, which can help you feel as energetic as you did ten years ago.


This herb is obtained from the gingko tree, and it has been used as an anti-aging remedy for centuries. It can help protect your skin and prevent wrinkles, and also strengthens your capillaries. This is important as capillaries are responsible for delivering oxygen throughout the body. Gingko has also been proven to help fight the onset of macular degeneration.


Turmeric can be used to counteract the effects of aging on the skin, but this is just one of its many benefits. Turmeric contains a substance called curcumin, which has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects that, among other benefits, helps your body to prevent or slow the onset of degenerative diseases.


Thyme is one of the best herbs to use to fight against bacterial infections. These infections can be mild, but can also include more serious diseases, such as pneumonia. Thyme has been shown to kill MRSA bacteria, which causes staph infections.

Thyme extract is commonly used in mouthwashes and cough drops to fight inflammation in the mouth or throat.


If you’re concerned about the strength of your immune system as you age, Oregano is a natural antioxidant that also has powerful antibiotic properties.

Rosmarinic acid, which is found in a variety of plants, including Oregano, has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It has been proven to help kill the source of yeast infection and fungal infections in the nails.


Many people don’t know this, but inflammation of cells is one of the main reasons that your body ages faster than necessary. Because sage helps reduce this inflammation, it has been proven to have potent anti-aging properties. Among other benefits, sage can reduce inflammation caused by arthritis and asthma.

These are only a few herbs that can combat premature aging. 

Many you can use in recipes or take as supplements.  Please ensure you talk to your healthcare practitioner before making any lifestyle changes.

Until next time!
