Herb Pharm prepares Dandelion extract from fresh (never dried) whole Certified Organic Taraxacum officinale plants (root, leaf and flower) grown on their own farms in southern Oregon. The plants are grown in neat rows, harvested each spring and often have taproots over a foot in length. To assure optimal extraction of the herb'™s bioactive compounds, the plants are hand-harvested while in full flower and then promptly extracted while still fresh and succulent. The herb is extracted in small batches with Certified Organic cane alcohol for potency and to maintain the balance of phytochemicals as they exist in the plant. Herb Pharm assures herb identity via macroscopic and organoleptic analysis, then confirms it through methods such as HPTLC fingerprinting specific to each herb. The formula is easily dispensed, taken in liquid form and added to water or other liquid.
