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.

The phytochemical properties of the Devil’s Claw plant are stored in its bulbous secondary roots that grow from the primary root. In order to make sure the plant dose not die during harvest, plant experts must dig holes at the side of the plant to get to the juicy secondary roots and cut them off. Not all the bulbous secondary roots are cut away; this means the plant will still be able to grow more during the next rainy season. The harvested roots are then thoroughly cleaned before being dried straight away. After careful selection each root is slowly ground into a very fine powder and undergoes toxicology testing for foreign bodies, pollutants and heavy metals. The product is then made ready for shipping. This process adheres to GMP Standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs.
Taking high doses of Devil’s Claw may upset the stomach in some people. Individuals with stomach ulcers, gallstones or duodenal ulcers should not take Devil’s Claw.
There have yet to be any studies on Devil’s Claw and pregnant or breastfeeding women and so shouldn’t be taken by women who fall into either of these categories.

Devil’s Claw might also thin the blood and so people taking blood thinning medication should consult a doctor before taking this herb.
