Phytochemistry refers to the chemical structures in plants. This introduction to botanical constituents as they relate to herbal products will be taught in simple and accessible terminology. Constituents discussed will include polysaccharides, polyphenols, phytoestrogens, alkaloids, tannins, resins, and volatile oils. This class will help anyone interested in the science of plant medicine better understand how the constituents of commonly used botanicals influence human health and physiology. An extensive background in chemistry is not needed to benefit from this material - anyone with an interest in learning more about the inner mysteries of botanicals is welcome to attend!
