Japanese Knotweed Discussion:
We have various selections on parts of the plant used because many herbalists recommend just the root, while others say to try the full-spectrum version. What we do differently than others, besides offer a whole plant product is that we wildcraft ourselves, but we incorporate the seed into our products. It is said to be interchangeable with the root. Many times throughout this site, we have discussed how the invasive plants may be a gift to us from Mother Nature. It seems that they may have built a resistance to modern infectious pathogens. If that is the case, knotweed is one of the most invasive plants on the planet! If you drop even a small piece of the stem, a new plant may grow!
Knotweed is one of the most potent and effective adaptogens that exist! It is used by top herbalists for support with things like neurological support, including myelin sheath repair, as well as a microcirculatory adaptogen, which means it may grab and pull other compounds that aren’t as capable, to where they may be needed the most. The veins of the eye are an example of a microcirculatory area, which means it may be able to reach places you thought weren’t! Due to the sheath support, which are the coverings to a network that we call the central nervous system, it is a popular remedy for that type of support. This is an area that may be affected by a Lyme infection, which makes it one of the most used herbs for Lyme support. It is considered to be a staple in Stephen Harrod Buhner’s Lyme protocol.
Knotweed root is said to be one of the highest sources of the aging, rejuvenation compounds, called Resveratrol. So much so that it is said to boost collagen production.
Tinctures – Herbal compounds extracted in an alcohol base. Tinctures offer the most superior absorption capabilities. We recommend to allow your dose to sit under the tongue for a minute or two, then swallowing it down with a drink of water. The microscopic, pre-extracted compounds are readily available to be absorbed through the tissue, into the bloodstream, then circulating to the organs.
Lipospheric Tinctures – Standard tinctures that are put through an energetic process, which collides the herbal compounds, encasing them in oxygenated bubbles. This method is an oxygenation process, which changes the color of the solution. The lipospheres’ are commonly referred to as nano-particles, which surpasses the bioavailability of a standard tincture.
Capsules – Size 00, vegetarian capsules, handmade, to order. We feel that the combination of a tincture, and capsules, of the same herb, or blend, may offer a saturation that cannot be surpassed otherwise. The duo is highly recommended for those that really want to see what an herb may do for them!
Herbal Tea – Each teabag can be brewed up to three times, resulting in three cups of tea, each. Generally, this means that you may get 60-75 cups of tea per 6 oz. order! Each label specifies the brewing instructions, which highly depends on the parts used in the tea.
Glycerites – Herbal compounds extracted in vegetable glycerin. This may be ideal for those most sensitive and for children.
Loose Herbal Powders – We keep an inventory of herbs in their whole-form. They are powdered down, to order. This ensures abundant, and present, compounds as well as superior freshness. Many of our herbs are wildcrafted, which is the most medicinal form one can attain, in our opinion.
All variations are animal & child-safe, at the appropriate dosage. Wherever possible, we always choose unprocessed, ethically wildcrafted plant material. “Full-spectrum” means that the product contains every part of the plant, including the roots, and wherever we can, we even add the seed, flower, and/or fruit!
We have had our products energetically tested by a practitioner, using the Zygo scanning system. The results were that our products tested 360% more energetic than any others! Over the years customers have continued to energetically test our products with their own body and they have passed every test they have ever been put through.
Always use herbals wisely and with common sense!
