Home / Nutrition / Plants



From the HSN Blog, we have created a complete guide about the benefits that plants can provide to our body.

Ancient cultures have left behind many natural remedies that should not be lost with the passing of time nor with the industry.

What are plants?

Like other products that are currently not so popular, such as seaweeds or mushrooms, plants can provide several benefits for our organism, following the different traditional cultures that have always used them.

Some examples of these plants are:

  • Fruit
  • Leaves
  • Bark extracts
  • Seeds
  • Oils

Natural remedies

Natural plant remedies (like the ones you will find in our blog) are the best choice to treat headaches or mild colds since they are quite effective as well. However, this does not mean that we can use them without taking any precautions.

We will have to pay attention to how the symptoms evolve and we may have to go to the doctor if they persist or get worse.

How to obtain the benefits from plants

Said natural remedies are available in different formats from which we can obtain all their benefits.

We can take them naturally during our meals, in cold drinks or teas, infusions or oils.

They can be used in topical format as well, either creams or oils; there are also dietary supplementation available in order to benefit from their properties more easily on a daily basis.

Take advantage of this complete guide about plants, their utilization in supplementation and all their effects.
