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 or fruit juice, 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

Indigo Herbs Organic Fo-ti Powder is the traditionally prepared Ho Shou Wu powder that is stewed for 32 hours with black beans according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. When the organically grown Polygonum multiflorum vine has reached the required maturity the root is dug up, cleaned, inspected for quality and prepared for stewing with the black beans. The whole process takes quite a number of hours until the preparation is ready. Then the preparation is dehydrated into a cake and milled into a fine powder. The resulting Fo-ti Powder is then checked for foreign bodies, heavy metals and bacteria before being shipped.

100% Pure Organic Polygonum multiflorum Powder

Not to be used while pregnant. Excessive use may cause gastro-intestinal upset and diarrhea.
