The Horseshoe Crab Has Saved Millions Of Human Lives, And That May Include Yours
The use of animal parts in natural medicines has existed for centuries. Creatures like zebras, turtles, and even rhinoceroses have all been used to make these remedies available to people.
While it may seem strange, each of these animals contain a properties which researchers believe may improve human health, in some form or another.
The horseshoe crab is one such animal responsible for providing a few impressive life-saving properties. Wait until you see what 450 million years of this creature’s evolution has done for modern medicine…
Sadly, as is the case with many animals who are used for medicines, roughly 30% of these creatures die during the blood extraction process or after they are released back into the wild, which has led to dwindling populations of this particular species.
It’s amazing to think that an animal we know so little about makes such a contribution to our everyday health.
