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.

Indigo Herbs Wild Yam Powder comes from Mexico where it is cultivated for the specific purpose of being made into powder. Wild Yam from this producer is some of finest produced Dioscorea villosa on the market. The typical production method employed is to generate perfect root growth and only harvest when the plants are at peak maturity. The Wild Yam is then carefully dug up making sure all roots are intact. The main body of the plant is then cut away leaving the precious roots. After meticulous cleaning and screening only the very best Wild Yam roots proceed to the process of dehydration in special dehumidifiers. These machines make sure that all moisture is taken from the root matter before the dry root can finally be milled into a fine powder. All powders are then tested for heavy metals and other pollutants before being made ready for shipping. This product is 100% pure botanical ingredients, with absolutely nothing added and manufactured to GMP standards.
Women with hormone-dependent conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and cancers of the breast, ovaries, or uterus should not take or use wild yam due to its possible estrogenic effects. Men with prostate cancer should also avoid taking wild yam.
Pregnant women should not take wild yam because it may stimulate the uterus to contract, possibly causing a miscarriage.
Because very little information is available on how wild yam might affect an infant or a small child, its use is not recommended while breast-feeding or during early childhood.
