“Nowadays, the slogan of several commercials is very rotund; they offer anti-ageing products, claiming they support cell renewal and are anti-cancer agents. Very often, these products advertise as wonder substances and healers of the most common diseases. But what is the truth? Can herbs have such a broad mechanism of actions?”
In this beautifully articulated article pharmacobotanist Ágnes Polyák introduces us into a group of compounds called lignans which are biologically very active compounds and have been adverted by researchers in the past 10-15 years, yet they are less known in therapeutics.
Ágnes Polyák is a member of the Hungarian Society for Pharmaceutical Sciences and has been interested in herbs since she was 14 years old. She has lectured for ten years at several Hungarian universities. She shares her time between farming and teaching, regularly runs pharmacobotanical workshops and excursions and aims to pass on practical, common sense knowledge for herbs and her love for nature to all ages, from kindergarten to the retired.
Enjoy the wonderful way as Agnes shares her deep knowledge in herbal chemistry with ease. Find this article in our last SUMMER edition of AROMATIKA Magazine 2021. 8.2. You can still download that e-journal from us to add to your collection of aromatic wisdom.
