What herbs and botanicals are best after 50?

These can. If you do use medicinal herbs, be sure to tell your doctor as some herbs can interfere with certain medications. Ginkgo for example has a reputation as a memory booster and it does seem useful with improving short-term memory when taken over a period of months. But it can interact with anticonvulsants antidepressants and blood thinners. Horsetail can be useful in the treatment of incontinence.
