Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

In Peru this powder is boiled in water for about 20 minutes before it is drunk but it can just as easily be mixed into a smoothie or herbal powder blend.


Traditionally taken: 1 cup of water to 1 teaspoon of Cats Claw Powder, 2-3 times daily.

1 teaspoon equals 3 grams (1tsp = 3g)

This finely milled powder has been made out of the reddish bark of the Cats Claw vine, sustainably harvested from wild rainforests. When the plant has reached a maturity of around 8 years old the bark is ready to be harvested. After the all branches have been stripped, the bark is cleaned and slow dried so only a little of the moisture is left in the plant material. After a selection process the bark can then be milled into a fine powder and be made ready for testing. Testing consists of toxicology looking for foreign bacteria, heavy metals and other pollutants. When the powder has passed all the required tests it is made ready for shipping.

Cats Claw contains a lot of tannins and so larger servings may cause mild stomach upset. Always increase servings in slight increments.
