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.

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.

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.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Chuchuhuasi Tincture

Can be added to fruit juice or water and taken daily. Traditionally Taken: 1-3 ml up to three times a day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

  • Produced to GMP standards
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added
  • Packaged in a pharmacoepial grade brown glass bottle with dropper

Manufacture Process

After careful harvesting, selection and cleaning Chuchuhuasi bark used to make this tincture undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.
