Elevate your Prescriptions with Medicinal Herbal Extracts
Making a decision regarding which herbal products are best and you can trust is not an easy task. In the last few years, many herbal products have come under attack – not only for containing toxic metals, but also for not containing any appreciable amounts of active phytochemicals. In fact, some herbal products have been found to not even have the DNA of the specific plant in the extract (Filipiak-Szok et al., 2014; Sasidharan et al., 2011). And as if that wasn’t already enough to cause tremendous concern, there now exist so-called natural herbal extracts, made with a solvent such as GMO grain (corn) alcohol, whose risk of DNA damage far outweighs any potential benefits.
In addition, there are now many more allergies being reported to corn grain alcohol source, and residual antibiotics and pesticides are found in non-organic GMO corn. In an effort to keep the costs down, many manufacturers of herbal extracts use corn grain alcohol over the more expensive Organic Grape alcohol, which cost three times as much. The percentage of alcohol is also an important factor, since 35% alcohol will never dissolve some of the phytochemicals present in a plant, making these extracts less bioabsorbable.
No other manufacturer of embryonic plant extracts uses 100% organic grape alcohol at a 60% concentration, as we do at PSC ® . As a result, all other products are inferior – it’s just that simple.
