Herb Robert

Geranium robertanium | herb info from the Happy Herb Company

Botanical name:

Geranium robertanium

This precious plant is a supreme therapeutic herb. It is very unique in its ability to oxygenate the cells – meaning that at a cellular level the body is much better able to fight disease and renew itself when taking Herb Robert. Hence, Herb Robert works to increase the immune response and the body’s ability to regenerate. How good is that?!

 
The herb is renowned in Portugal, by both traditional doctors and herbalists, as the most effective herbal remedy for cancer treatment and prevention. The herb contains ellagic acid, which research has shown may slow growth of some tumours casued by certain carcinogens. Sadly, despite these amazing healing characteristics, Herb Robert is little used in modern herbalism. It is sometimes however used for diarrhoea and to stop bleeding.
 
Other research has shown that Herb Robert also lowers blood sugar levels, and so it is extremely useful in cases of diabetes or to prevent diabetes in susceptible people.
 
Caution: Not to be taken with blood-thinning medications.
 
Preparation: Pour 1 cup of water just off the boil over 1-2 teaspoons of herb. Steep covered for 10 minutes. Sweeten with honey if desired. Take 3 times daily.
 
Actions: Astringent, antibiotic, adaptogen, sedative, antioxidant, diuretic, antidepressant, aphrodisiac, anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, astringent, antidiabetic, digestive.
