Where do your herbs come from?

Our herbs are grown on our own Regenerative Organic Certified® farms and ethically sourced from all corners of the world.

We manufacture all our products in the beautiful southern Oregon countryside. We grow more than 75 herbs on our Regenerative Organic Certified® farms, just down the road from our manufacturing facility. When we can’t grow an herb ourselves, we turn to our network of trusted wildcrafters, growers and brokers. They provide us with high-quality, ethically harvested herbs grown in the plants’ native habitats.

Why choose our liquid extracts or capsules?

Our liquid herbal extracts are powerfully effective, delivering the broad spectrum of every herb. They’re easy to use and highly digestible, working swiftly and efficiently, in perfect harmony with our bodies. We believe the best herbs make the best extracts and work only with ethically sourced plants.

Liquid herbal extracts can be added to water or juice, making them easier to incorporate into your everyday routines. We also love the convenience and excellent absorption rate of liquids.

For those who don’t prefer liquid herbal extracts, we also offer a selection of capsules. They’re a taste-free alternative that’s also broad-spectrum and made with the same commitment to quality we’ve upheld since 1979.

How do I know how much to take?

For liquid herbal extracts, we’ve made it simple for you by providing an easy-to-use bulb to dispense the suggested serving size. Simply shake the bottle, squeeze once, drop, drink, and you are on your way!

Each of our products offers a range of serving sizes on the label. We recommend you start at the lower end of the range for maintenance, and then adjust your serving frequency depending on your personal needs up to the higher end of the range. We offer this flexible usage range to best suit your health goals.

What if I have dietary restrictions?

All of our products are non-GMO, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and peanut-free. They would also be considered appropriate for a Keto or Paleo diet. Most of our products are also vegan and tree nut-free. We put as much important information on the label as possible to help you make an informed decision. If you ever have any questions about allergens or our products, contact us at 1-800-348-4372 or sales@herb-pharm.com.

So disappointing.

Why on earth did you add maltodextrin to your products? This puts your products on par with substandard drugstore brands. What a shame. I will not use nor recommend health products with sugars in them. Please go back to your original recipes. It serves no health benefit whatsoever to add sugars to health remedies.

Hi Marick - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We developed our Kava capsules to make this herb available to more people that may not be able to ingest our alcohol-based liquid extract. Our Kava capsule formula is the same as the original capsule formula with the exception that we are now using an organic capsule shell. Maltodextrin is needed in the process of making a concentrated powder extract to deliver the desired concentration of active constituents.

While we do offer hundreds of liquid herbal extracts, and we continue to offer our traditional Kava liquid herbal extract as well, we understand that it’s not everyone’s preferred format. Such is the case for capsules too. With capsules, we’re able to offer more options that still deliver the broad-spectrum of phytochemicals from the plant. Capsules are easy to take on the go, only require a sip of water to swallow and are fully taste-free. We encourage you to make the best choice for your body in regard to which delivery methods work for you.

If you are unsatisfied with your product, our Customer Service team would be more than happy to help. You can reach them at: 1-800-438-4372 or sales@herb-pharm.com
