Using Raw Herbs - How to Use erb


Why Use Raw Herbs in Powdered Form?

 Natural compounds and nutrients straight from whole raw foods/herbs are highly “bioavailable,” meaning they are best absorbed and available for use in your body system - in natural raw unadulterated form with the proper ratio of complimentary vitamins and minerals that aid with absorption and effectiveness.

Herbal material such as dried leaves, flowers, roots, barks and berries are finely milled into powders – a complete and pure source of plant-based nutrients and beneficial compounds. If you don’t have the option of eating freshly picked herbs, powdered herbs are arguably the most natural (and oldest) form of herbal preparation and use.
