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.

Milk Thistle Seed Powder can be added to boiling water before use. Do not exceed recommended serving to reduce the risk of symptoms of detoxification.

Excellent Service and products I mix 1 heaped teaspoon of this milk thistle powder with a small amount of fresh juice, then mix to smooth paste top up with more juice and drink straight down, 👌 I certainly think its giving me more energy and convinced it is contributing to the detoxification .. I usually use the liquid drops but giving this a try so far happy , but to be fair drops are easier, Thankyou great service from this company Jan ONeil

It's hard to review something like this as there are no instant results. So all I can really say is that it doesn't taste disgusting, mixes well and that I will buy more.

My vet recommended this to counteract the negative effect of a spot-on against ticks, of which there are many this year. I suspect that the result is positive. I recommend Indigo Herbs, who have been most efficient in sending the product to Malta. I look forward to discovering more of their products. Alaine Apap Bologna

I like this product a lot. I know all the benefits of Milk Thistle for the liver etc. I take 1 tsp straight in my mouth and drink a little bit of pure water and swallow. I wish there were 200g bags.

I've not used this on its own, I've been using it as one part of a 3-part active blend for about a month and it seems to be doing a very good job for me so far.

I bought this product, as I had previously been buying pre-made Milk Thistle teabags. This is a much cheaper way of consuming milk thistle. I can now make my own teabags. The product arrived swiftly and is packed in a handy resealable pouch. Perfect!
