Herbs for the Outdoor Lover

As the weather cools with the change of season, it's a great time for longer hikes and beautiful nights under the stars. Providing your body with herbal support can help you to better enjoy your time outdoors. Here are some of our favorite herbs to help you continue your adventures.

Turmeric

Turmeric is one of our favorite herbs, and has been used for thousands of years. Popular in Ayurvedic medicine, Turmeric traditionally supports a healthy inflammatory response for the whole body, in otherwise healthy individuals.* With our Turmeric Supreme line, we paired Turmeric with other herbs to create synergistic blends to get the most of the Turmeric. Whether it’s Turmeric Supreme Joint or Turmeric Supreme Pain, there is a Turmeric formula to fit everyone's needs.*

Nettle

Nettle at Gaia Herbs Farm

Known for the bristly rash it can cause from its stinging hairs called trichomes, Nettle is native to Europe, Asia, and North America. It can be eaten steamed like spinach, or taken as an herbal supplement in the form of a liquid extract. Nettle has traditionally been used for maintaining upper respiratory health.*

Propolis

Propolis is produced by tree resin and sap collected by bees. Bees will often use this material to seal and repair their hive. Propolis has been used for thousands of years, from Ancient Greece to Ancient Egypt in traditional medicines. This unique extract helps support overall well-being.*

Wormwood Black Walnut Supreme

Maintaining a healthy GI tract is important while traveling and exploring. Our Wormwood Black Walnut Supreme liquid extract combines several herbs that have been traditionally used for sustaining a healthy GI tract.* Wormwood has been used for over 2,000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Black Walnut use has been recorded back to Ancient Greece and Rome. This powerful formula also combines Clove, Coptis, Gentian, Ginger, and Pomegranate.

Cat's Claw

Cat's Claw in nature

Cat's Claw is native to the Amazon rainforest and other tropical areas of South and Central America. With the name coming from the claw-like thorns on the vine, Cat’s Claw has been used for over 2,000 years. Our Cat’s Claw Bark liquid extract is great for those who live an active lifestyle to help sustain healthy joints.*

Energy Vitality

One of Gaia's most popular products, Energy Vitality combines Ginkgo, Ginseng, Green Tea, and Nettle to help support healthy stamina and energy levels. This is a great blend for athletes and those who are active on the weekends after a long week of work.*
