Greens Today FAQ's
Which is a better form of taking herbs, liquid or capsules?
Herbs can be used in both the liquid and capsule form depending on your personal preference. Liquids are more easily absorbed and are perfect for people who have trouble swallowing pills, such as children and the elderly. Unlike other liquid brands, Nature's Answer is alcohol free or very low in alcohol (12-14%). Capsules may be preferable because using them avoids the bitter and unpleasant taste of some herbs, and they can be packed in a pill case for ease of dosing, convenient for the supplement user on the go.
What is the benefit of using an alcohol-free extract?
Firstly, many people simply do not like to use alcohol as they strive towards healthier living. Others may not use alcohol for religious reasons, because they are in recovery or are pregnant or nursing. Furthermore, alcohol is not for children. These products address all those concerns. Secondly, and most importantly, alcohol-free extracts allow you to taste the plant, not the alcohol ! This taste is extremely important in that it gets your body ready to receive the gifts that the plant has to offer. Tasting the herb is part of the overall herbal experience and healing process. Alcohol-free extracts enable you to truly appreciate all of the plant's gifts.
Are your herbs organic?
This is a good question. Nature's Answer uses three types of herbs in their formulations, Certified Organic, Responsibly Wildcrafted, or Cultivated. Their certified organic herbs come from a variety of organic farms located throughout the United States. Many of Their formulas also feature Responsibly Wildcrafted herbs. Responsibly wildcrafted herbs are those picked in a responsible manner, whereby no plant will be over picked and therefore, be a risk to the existence of the species. They are picked in their natural environment at optimal times for harvesting, and have not been exposed to any sprays or fertilizers. These plants are also considered organic; however since they are not certified, they are referred to as wildcrafted herbs. Cultivated plants are grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides but are not certified organic and therefore, cannot be called organic. Ultimately, no matter the source of Their herbs, all are fully tested for microbes, chemicals and residues contaminants that could compromise the quality of the herb.
If alcohol is needed in extraction, how do you make an alcohol- free extract?
Nature's Answer begins with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, they perform an additional step to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation. Bio-Chelation describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract. It is important to note that a cold extraction process , as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic Balance TM of the plant's constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).
I catch every cold that comes around my office; what can I take to keep me healthier?
The best approach to take is to use tonic herbs that will build your immune system, rather than relying on Echinacea every time you get a cold. The best herbs to take to strengthen and support the immune system are Astragalus, Reishi (or any of the medicinal mushrooms like Maitake or Shiitake) or any of the Ginseng herbs, to name a few. These herbs are ideal for overall natural protection.
