More on the Quality of Our Herbs and Herbal Preparations
Obtaining top quality herbs is a vital first step. Therefore, 99% of the herbs we use are Certified Organically Grown or Wild Harvested. Certified Organically Grown means insecticide, pesticide and chemical fertilizer free. What¹s more, it means more potent because studies prove that organically grown food and herbs contain 4 to 10 times the plant chemistry, minerals, and nutritional value. Wild Harvested means the herbs were picked in their wild native habitats. Herbs of such fine quality cost us a lot more- we do this because we hold quality and your health above all other interests.
In contrast, 95% of the herbs used in commercial herbal formulas you find in stores come from third world countries or areas such as India, Egypt, China, Eastern Europe and the like that still use tons of DDT, cancer-causing insecticides and toxic chemical fertilizers. The water in these countries often makes you sick. Why would you want to consume these herbs? To make matters worse, imported herbs are normally irradiated or sterilized with toxic gas in order to decontaminate them of insects and germs commonly found in shipments from such places. The US Government is very efficient in seeing that these toxic "solutions" are used on commercially imported herbs!
Even Organic Herbs can be mis-handled to lose their valuable properties. The natural oils of the plants often contain their healing essences. These oils are often lost in the machine-driven industrial mass production techniques used by most manufacturers. The result: capsules full of dried herbal fiber with very low potency. This is a main reason why consumers see poor results in taking store-bought herbs.
Herbs are very powerful medicinal foods when grown, harvested and processed properly. The entire line of products at Southern Botanicals is hand made the old fashioned way. We fill our tonic brewing jugs full of herbs; after settling for a day, the herbal matter always takes up 2/3 to 3/4 of the container. Each batch is made to the maximum and we take pride in doing so!
