What are herbal extracts?
Herbal extracts are an excellent way of getting the nutrition and goodness from a herb, without the trouble of sometimes elaborate preparation. They are also a way of getting the goodness in as concentrated a form as possible.
How are herbal extracts made?
The raw herbs are prepared by hot water extraction, the water is then evaporated off until all that is left is the essential oils and active ingredients. These are then bound together in an excipient, small amounts of non-GM corn flour. This is the most pure, beneficial and unadulterated way to enjoy tonic herbal extracts possible.
Purity: this vegan product is free from wheat, gluten, soya, added sugar, salt, test, lactose, preservatives, or any other fillers. Not tested on animals.
Ho Shou Wu is food grade and safe to use as you would a culinary herb. It can be added to any foods or drinks. Add half a teaspoon to a healthy juice or smoothie, or prepare it as an instant tonic tea, by simply putting half a teaspoon in a cup or mug, and adding hot water.
As with all herbs, don't exceed one teaspoon of herbal extract a day unless guided to by a qualified healthcare professional.
