A quality herbal product starts with the highest quality fresh organic plant material. The efficacy of herbal products has always been affected by growing conditions, harvesting, processing and storage. At Factor Farms in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada our quality can be guaranteed as we control the entire process from seedling to finished product.
To grow herbs organically no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides or pesticides are allowed. We use only natural substances that have been approved by the organic industry. You can be assured that the fresh herb extracts contain no traces of unwanted chemical. Even the seed and plant sources are organic.
To be organically certified, certification inspectors work closely with growers to ensure that the organic standards are adhered to. We must keep detailed records of what we use on our farm. Even after harvest, processing is regulated so that no harmful chemicals are used to manufacture the fresh herb extracts.
Local cultivation of medicinal herbs at Factors Farms ensures that the herbs are picked, processed, and extracted at just the right time when the active ingredients are at their peak.
Natural Factor knows that the natural habitats of many herbs are shrinking and that over-harvesting from the wild can endanger native medicinal plant populations. So organic cultivation of herbs is preferred over "wild crafting".
1 capsule, 1 or more times per day or as desired, preferably with meals with water or juice, or as directed by a health care professional.

I have used this product after my 'hernia surgery' and it took the edge off inflammation and pain. Excellent product.
So far, I've been using this product to tenderize beef in a marinade. Sure enough, it's effective if you like the consistency this type of tenderizer leaves. But I haven't used it as a digestive aid.
Bromelain--not only is it good for digestion, but it's an excellent pain killer/reducer. That's mainly what I take it for. And if your sinus's are infected, they swell--this reduces swelling/inflammation and reduces pressure and you feel 'better'/'well'.
