Chuchuhuasi Products

Native to the Amazon Rainforest, Chuchuhuasi is a huge canopy tree whose bark has been used by Shamans and Medicine Men as a traditional remedy for centuries. It was used as a natural pain reliever, an invigorating general tonic and as an aphrodisiac. The bark is rich in many natural compounds such as alkaloids, triterpenes and sesquiterpenes which are thought to be responsible for its many benefits. It’s Peruvian name means “trembling back”, alluding to its traditional use to relieve back pain. It is still considered a powerful medicinal herb in South America where the locals soak the bark in sugar cane rum that is served in local bars as “Go Juice”.

Here at Indigo Herbs, our Chuchuhuasi range includes; Chuchuhuasi Extract Powder (4:1), Chuchuhuasi Tea, Chuchuhuasi Tincture and Chuchuhuasi Tea Bags.

Indigo Herbs Chuchuhuasi 4:1 Herbal powder is a premium quality extract delivering a powerful stimulating tonic that can help a tired aching body. Chuchuhuasi is well known to South America locals as an aphrodisiac and mild stimulant. This herbal powder can be added to a little liquid and taken daily.

At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the quality, manufacture and suggested use of this herbal powder. We are unable to advise you here on the benefits of our herbal products, however we do recommend you take the opportunity to research the many benefits of this herb. At Indigo Herbs we are committed to empowering optimum health and nutrition and assisting you to take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing, by having access to many of natures healing botanicals. Please consult an Herbalist as to how this product can benefit you.

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.

This herbal powder can be re-hydrated in water, fruit juice or breakfast smoothie. It can be encapsulated or added to a herbal powder blend. Please consult the Herbal Materia Medica or Medical Herbalist for this botanical ingredients uses.

Manufacture Process

At Indigo Herbs we take quality seriously, so the most important factor we consider when supplying a good herbal extract is the quality of herbs used to make the extract and the highly skilled extraction techniques used.

Firstly a Herbal Powder Extract is concentrated and its strength is denoted by a ratio, the aim is to concentrate but to alter as little as possible of the quality of the herb and retain the ratio of the herb's natural chemical profile. So for example 1g of this Chuchuhuasi 4:1 Herbal powder is equivalent to 4g of raw crude Chuchuhuasi. Full Herbal Extracts (crude or simple extracts) are processed in order to assure the finished extract contains the broadest spectrum of the herb's chemical constituents in a similar ratio to the crude herb itself. These Full Herbal extracts are produced using grain or fruit alcohol, water and/or vegetable glycerine.

I've bought a number of tinctures from here over the years and I think they're doing good.? Certainly not doing me any harm. Ashwaghanda, milk thistle, gotu Kola all good. Dried catnip tea I'm less sure of!
