ALFALFAA Little For Arthritis - Limbs Freely Active Tony
ALFALFA (2)A Little For Appetite, Lots For Anaemia/Autoimmunotoxicity Angela Brett -- Appetite is just one of the many A-words on the all-encompassing lists of what alfalfa might possibly improve.

EPIMEDIUMEnhances Potency In Males - Extends 'Duration' In Underperforming Men Tony
FO TIFor One's Tea Infusion Angela Brett (I assume it's an accident that the name could be pronounced as a non-rhotic 'for tea' but apparently fo ti is used as a tea.)

SCHISANDRASupposedly Can Help Irritable Stomachs And Nervous Digestions - Reliably Affective Tony
SENNA LEAFSh*t Erupts Near Nasty Asshole, Laxative Effects Are Famous Tony, when Senna Leaf was mentioned as one of ORGANIC HERB's products. I don't know if Senna Leaf has similar properties to Senna Pod, and I can't be arsed finding out.
ST JOHN'S WORTSupposed To Jolt Our Happiness; No Salesman/Scientist Would Openly Refute This. Angela Brett, who has heard that St. John's Wort is good for depression. Choose the S word based on your scepticism level.
THYMEThis Herb You Must Eat Tony
WILD YAMWill I Live Double Years Appearing Mortesque? Angela Brett -- the ORGANIC HERB spammer mentioned wild yam as one of it's products, so I assume it's rumoured to be good for something, and extending lifespan is a pretty general aim that most remedies share. 'Mortesque' isn't a word but I'm using it to mean something like 'as if dead.' -- you'd have to be careful with anything promising a long life that you didn't end up living another hundred years looking and feeling like a corpse.
WILD YAM (2)Wonderful In Large Doses You'll Agree, Milady Tony
