Sourcing the Highest Quality Herbs:

Our premium-grade herbs are carefully selected and procured by highly reputable suppliers, whose skilled herbalists travel the world to source the best raw materials. They contract with bio-regional farm communities who have generations of experience in cultivating and harvesting their indigenous crops, using the most natural and traditional methods. This is done without the use of pesticides, fungicides, sulfites, or fumigation. Organic and ethically harvested herbs are always chosen whenever possible. These fresh, raw herbs are then carefully dried and inspected, then shipped promptly to our domestic manufacturers in the US.

Supporting Eco-friendly agriculture and Fair-trade practices preserves the local environments, the farmers, and their ancient traditions of herb cultivation and processing. The herbs are then further inspected and examined by experienced herbalists and lab technicians, who carefully prepare and process them according to the highest standards of protocol supported by traditional and modern practices.

 

Manufacturing:

Our premium extracts are manufactured under strict quality controls, using proprietary, multi-phased, dual extraction systems. Both our liquid and powdered extracts are water-based, full-spectrum, extracts. Water and/or alcohol is used as appropriate to maximize the amounts and types of compounds extracted, always in accordance with traditional principles. The end product is a potent, rich tea concentrate, alive with fragrant aromatics and volatile oils. The full-spectrum powder extracts use freeze dry and spray dry methods to remove all liquid elements and to obtain an incredibly concentrated fine powder, not bound to any carriers or excipients.

 

Concentration Ratio:

Fluid Extracts
The liquid tea concentrates use between 8-10 pounds of premium grade herbs to produce 1 gallon of extract. This equates to an 8:1 fluid extract concentration (Lbs:Gal) or 1:1 by metric system (Kg:L).

Powder Extracts
The carrier-free powdered extracts range from 8:1 to 30:1 depending on the item.
The average concentration is 12:1. Standardization markers are given whenever applicable.
Certificates of analysis available on request.

 

Serving Guidelines:

Liquid Extracts
Large serving: 1 tsp. (60-90 drops) in warm water as a tea, 2-3 x day.
Small Serving: 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. (15 – 45) drops under the tongue or in an unchilled beverage, 2-3 x day.

Powder Extracts
Calculate according to concentration ratio vs normal raw herb serving (e.g. 10 grams of raw herb in a prescription  =  1 gram of powder extract at a 10:1 potency).
