Modern researchers have identified flavonoid compounds in Black Elderberries that may be directly responible for many health - promoting benefits.

What is the source of Gaia Herbs' alcohol?
Gaia Herbs uses 190-proof distilled alcohol derived from corn and wheat. Gaia also use 190-proof Certified Organic, GMO-free, corn-derived and sugarcane-derived alcohol for all products that are listed as Certified Organic in organic alcohol.
Do the products contain gluten?
There are no gluten containing ingredients in Gaia Herbs' products, with the exception of Reflux Relief (made by Aboca for Gaia Herbs), which contains Barley (listed on the label). 190 proof grain alcohol (from wheat and corn) used for extraction, is distilled and certified gluten-free by the manufacturer. The distillation process eliminates proteins (gluten is a protein). Gaia Herbs' oats (Wild Oats Milky seed) are grown on an organic farm and are not cross contaminated with any gluten containing grains, therefore they are also considered to be gluten-free. The products do not go through a gluten-free certification process.
What is Gaia Herbs' policy on GMOs?
Gaia Herbs is committed to using and supporting only non-GMO materials. Gaia never purchases GMO herbs and/or ingredients, with the exception of non-organic alcohol, which cannot be reliably procured from non-GMO crops. Gaia does a purchasing review to ensure they eliminate the possibility of "hidden" GMO's making their way into the products. Gaia uses a documented certified non-GMO source of soy lecithin, which is used as an emulsifier in some encapsulated products. All herbs propagated and grown on Gaia Herbs' farm are certified organic and therefore GMO free. The seed used in all certified organically grown crops is gathered on their own farm or produced from other certified organic growers and is GMO free. In rare instances where they cannot obtain certified organic seed, Gaia obtains seed from suppliers fully committed to non-GMO practices. Gaia also purchases as many organic and/ or ecologically harvested ingredients as possible to avoid any GMO. Gaia is currently and will continue to do everything possible to ensure that all products are non-GMO.
