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.

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. As well as the pure herbal powders, we also supply both Herbal Powder Extracts and Standardized Herbal Extracts.
Standardized extracts have a standard amount of a specific phytochemical and this content is denoted by a percentage. So for example 1g of Milk Thistle 80% Powder Extract (80% Silymarin) contains 800mg of Silymarin, as Silymarin is thought to be the active phyto-chemical in this plant. A Standardized Extract is processed in order to ensure the active phytochemical always occurs in the exact same standardized ratio, which is not the naturally occurring ratio in the crude herb and quite often its "inert" constituents are removed or reduced. Standardized extracts are often extracted with acetone, benzene, methyl alcohol, butyl alcohol, carbon tetrachloride, and other synthetic chemicals that, are removed from the finished product.
Can cause an allergic reaction. Occasionally people report a laxative upset stomach.
