Series: Plant Science Research and Practices, New Developments in Medical Research
BISAC: MED032000

Worldwide, human life is headed for longevity. On the other hand, humans have a desire to stay healthy and live longer. However, synthetic drugs are immediately effective, but some drugs can cause serious side effects. From about 100 to 150 years ago, humans have used all diseases for treatment and prevention, using natural resources such as plants, animals and minerals. These natural ingredients can minimize side effects etc. even after long-term administration. In addition, these natural ingredients can also control chronic toxicity etc. in a concentration-dependent manner. Based on these ideas, this book will focus on plant ingredients and plants that can be expected to maintain health until this longevity.
