Note: Due to changing FDA regulations Pure Herbs has had its classification changed to dietary supplements. Dietary supplements do not need FDA approval or any other government agency before they are sold to consumers. Because these products are dietary supplements and not drugs, they cannot be sold to treat, prevent or cure disease. A product sold as a dietary supplement and promoted as a treatment, prevention or cure for a specific disease or condition would be considered an unapproved drug that would be illegal to sell. Pure Herbs is in the process of creating new labels and content for their products. As a result any information or wording relating to the prevention or cure of a disease, will relate to the historical or traditional uses recorded over time and is for educational purposes only..
Allergens can be a problem even in an herbal extract. Some of Pure Herbs Extracts contain gluten, tree nuts, or dairy. Click here for a downloadable list of Pure Herbs products containing these substances.
The majority of Pure Herbs products are liquid, alcohol extracts. Why choose a liquid over the capsule? Extracts are intended to be used to supplement the diet with herbal foods in an easily absorbed form. Most people are not even aware that they may be carrying around as much as ten pounds or more of rather disgusting debris coating the surfaces of their digestive canal: stomach, small and large intestines. This ‘garbage’ forms a barrier between the food which is eaten and the ability to absorb the needed nutrition. This means the digestive system needs some help. The intestinal system is often clogged or very slow to empty due to debris. if not eliminated on a timely basis, this putrid barrier film can itself be constantly reabsorbed back into the body. Not only is this barrier of debris bad for absorption of commonly eaten foods, but also herbal powders, herbal powders in capsules, herbal pills, and vitamin tablets. Herbal extracts are an efficient method to get herbal foods absorbed through this barrier film and dissolve the barrier itself. Not only can they cross the debris barrier, they do so rapidly and help to dissolve the barrier in the process. As a matter of fact, an herbal extract can be applied externally right over the area where required. This, of course, would be difficult to do with a capsule of powdered herbs or a tablet.
An herbal extract can be made with anything which allows an herb to dissolve in it. This can include most common liquids, such as distilled water, vinegar, wine, glycerin (sugar and fat compound most commonly derived from animal tissue) or a neutral alcohol. When you put an herbal tea bag into a cup of hot water, the color, taste, and aroma which dissolve into the water make an herbal extract (or water extract). However, some parts of the herb in the tea bag do not dissolve in water. Water will not dissolve the oily, waxy, detergent, enzymatic or hormonal content of the herb. Vinegar, wine and glycerin are substances which also can dissolve a small amount of this, but not all of the necessary active ingredients of the herb.
A combination of distilled water and a neutral alcohol is the best fluid known for dissolving all parts of an herb. A water and neutral alcohol extract provide an herbal food in a "predigested" form. It should be noted that when you get the full strength of an herbal food, a little goes a long way. So don't overdo and ‘eat’ too much. This is a "natural medicine" made from an herbal food. The concept of moderation is the key.
Color and Taste of Herbal Extracts
Herbs come from nature and just as crops from different years will taste differently, it is the same with herbs. This is a part of the endless variety nature provides. Slight differences in color and taste may be noticed from one year to the next. Just as you can follow a soup recipe and each batch will taste slightly different, it is just as good. All Pure Herbs products measure up to known and established standards of quality and excellence before they are approved for use so you can rely on them even though they might look or taste slightly different.
Note: When dealing with natural vitamins (those produced by Nature and not in a chemistry laboratory), what is desired is their dependable activity and effectiveness, not how many grams or milligrams of vitamins they contain. The activity level of vitamins from Nature should not be confused with the man made or coal tar source (high potency) type vitamins,, which are needed in large quantity to get any type of affect. Mother Nature does not stamp the milligram amounts of vitamins on the roots of Carrots or under the leaves of Dandelions or on a Wild Rose Hip. She simple makes and includes whatever is necessary to make living systems work! So don't get lost in the confusion of how many milligrams or i.u.'s are necessary for a healthy body.
