Abstract

Health disorders are most effectively cured by using preparations containing microelements in organic compounds, i.e. in the form most available for a patient. Medicinal plants are noted for their capacity to accumulate selectively specific microelements and their complexes (Lovkova et al., 1990) which may serve as a potential source of organically bound microelements.
