Herbal powders are very easy to take. They can be mixed with a little juice or milk and made into a herbal shot or better still, blended up into a smoothie. They can also be packed into capsules or wrapped in an edible wrapper and swallowed. Most delicious of all, they can be mixed into a Raw Chocolate recipe.
Most herbal powders can also be brewed into a herbal tea (infusion) or decoction.
Pure herbal powders are made from the raw dried herbs that are then milled into a powder. We only sell completely pure herbal powders and none of our products contain bulking agents. As well as pure powders, we also sell some powder extracts and standardized extracts. Powder extracts are concentrated and their strength is denoted by a ratio. So for example 1 gram of Clavohuasca 4:1 extract is equivalent to 4 grams of clavohuasca. Standardized extracts have a standard amount of a specific phytochemical and this content is denoted by a percentage. So for example 1 gram of Horny Goat Weed standardized extract (30% icariin) contains 300 milligrams of icariin.
We sell these powders in sensible quantities. So why buy expensive capsules and formulas when you can buy individual herbal powders at a fraction of the cost.
