Traditional medicine has called on a number of strange and mysterious plants over the years to cure everything from athlete's foot to cancer. And though modern technology has taken medicine to new scientific horizons, herbal and medicinal plants still form an important part of the world's healing process. Though there are literally thousands of these sought-after healing plants, a few are more popular and more commonly used than others.

Ginseng root is a highly-prized traditional medicine that offers enhancement to both energy and libido. A heavy-root plant, ginseng is typically dried and diced or powdered for use in pills or liquid supplements. The large roots take years to fully mature and come in many varieties: wild, American, and Panax being the most common. Used to treat ailments like diabetes, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, stress and even the common cold, ginseng is manufactured in high, straight doses (pills and powders) or in small, trace amounts (energy drinks).

Goldenseal is a powerful medicinal agent that has been used for centuries to treat everything from constipation to cuts and burns. Its small flowers and odd berries make it an unassuming plant; however, when ground with its roots and stems or added to other natural remedies, goldenseal is prescribed for wounds, inflammation, gastric problems, respiratory sickness and even liver ailments. Goldenseal is also a strong digestive bitter used to encourage appetite and ease digestion. This popular traditional remedy is now on endangered status because of over-harvesting and land destruction.
