This is a collaboration of plants, known to be some of the highest sources of shikimic acid. The three herbs used are whole star anise pods, wildcrafted pine needle, and wildcrafted, premature sweet gum pods. Another superior source for shikimic acid that we do not have yet are green strawberries. Shikimic acid is highly sought out for its support in the prevention and fighting of recent, epidemic viral infections.
Shikimic acid is being studied for its pathogenic activity, presence in aromatic compounds, lignin capabilities, biological activity, anticoagulant properties, anti-viral, anti-microbial, and its uses in cancer-fighting treatment methods. It may also play a role in some antiviral pharmaceuticals. You can read more about this by Clicking Here. Some say that it may be an important source of a specific chemical that may be significant in the making of drugs to fight against bird flu. It is also said to be used in the medication Tamiflu®, which is used to fight many types of flu viruses.
Sweet gum balls may provide enough shikimic acid to be considered a top remedy. Over a decade ago, star anise was beginning to become a scarce because it was used as a main source for shikimic acid. Since then, many other sources have been found and considered to be adequate substitutions. It is a potent antiviral remedy that has been ignored until now. It is used with intentions to block neuraminidase enzymes, which flus and viruses are known to use.
Tinctures – Herbal compounds extracted in an alcohol base. Tinctures offer the most superior absorption capabilities. We recommend allowing 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 nanoparticles, 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, but the weight of the pine needles is so light that it actually comes out to approximately 45 bags of tea, making almost 150 cups! 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.
