Our mission is to offer the finest full potency extracts made from the freshest, highest quality plants available.
Herbal medicine is as old as humankind and as widespread as the occurrence of communities. Herbal medicine is based on an intimate, practical knowledge of plants handed down for hundreds of generations while acknowledging the unique needs of individuals. While diet, exercise, and increased self-awareness form the foundation of health, fresh herbal therapy provides one of the key elements in the process of self-care.
We grow and wildcraft herbs in our bioregion and we source consciously wildcrafted plants from Hands On Organic or certified organic herbs from Pacific Botanicals.
Each phase of the production, from growing and selecting herbs, to the lengthy process of herbal extraction we do ourselves.
Our Compounds are synergistic combinations of herbs for a wide variety of common health concerns.
Liquid herbal extracts or tinctures are considered one of the most effective ways to take herbal supplements.
Unlike pills and capsules, liquid herbal extracts are immediately absorbed and assimilated into the bloodstream. Extracts are created by soaking herbs in a liquid menstruum of organic grain alcohol, water, kosher vegetable glycerin, or any combination of these.
This herb and menstruum mixture is mixed and turned for a minimum of two to four weeks and then pressed and filtered to leave a pure liquid herbal extract.
The quality and source of herbs used are of the highest importance. We have concentrated our efforts on obtaining fresh herbs picked at the optimum time for maximum potency.
We extract all of our herbs with gluten free, certified organic pharmaceutical grade grain alcohol.
Reishi Mushroom Complex
Reishi Mushroom, Maitake Mushroom, Shiitake Mushroom, Codonopsis, Eleuthero, fresh Astragalus
This compound targets the body's deepest line of defense. It may be used therapeutically for chronic conditions as well as a tonic for deep immune support.
Reishi Ganoderma lucidum organic mushroom
Reishi mushroom is used for many age-related diseases such as coronary heart disease, chronic bronchitis, hypertension and cancer. Its immunostimulating polysaccharides may make it useful for people who are HIV positive, as well as for those with Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It is especially suitable as a calming herb for people with anxiety, sleeplessness, or nervousness accompanied by adrenal weakness or deficiency syndromes.
Maitake Grifola frondosa organic mushroom
When used consistently, Maitake may aid in cancer prevention, immune stimulation in people with cancer, support for people undergoing chemotherapy (which is immunosuppressive), and people infected with the AIDS virus. Research in Japan has been centered around Maitake's action as a Host Defense Potentiator (HDP). HDP's help activate the immune system.
Shiitake Lentinus elodes organic mushroom
Shiitake is used medicinally for all diseases involving depressed immune function , including cancer, AIDS, environmental allergies, candida infections, and frequent flu and colds. It is both strengthening and restorative and its immunomodulating action may be useful as a general rejuvenative for older persons.
Eleuthero Eleutherococcus senticosis root
This herb normalizes blood pressure and reduces fatigue, stress, and depression. Eleuthero is a well-researched herb for balancing endocrine activity, promoting strength and energy, and enhancing work or athletic performance. It acts on the adrenal glands to normalize stress hormone (cortisol) levels thereby smoothing out the peaks and valleys of energy that characterize chronic stress.
Astragalus Astragalus membranaceus organic root
This mildly sweet and warm root is considered a Qi tonic or energy tonic. It has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism thereby making more energy available on a cellular level. Astragalus also enhances immune functioning by increasing leukocytic interferon production and its saponin content has a rejuvenating action on red blood cells.
Codonopsis Codonopsis pilosula Downy Bell flower root
This tonifying Chinese herb was originally called Shan Dang Ren Shen meaning the ginseng from Shan Dang. Although not actually a member of the ginseng family it was considered one of the five shens, or ginsengs. It addresses both functional and nutritional digestive deficiencies and is also considered a blood tonic with immunostimulant activities.
