The benefits of natural herbal extracts are numerous, and vary from herb to herb. Why and how should you take them in liquid form?


For starters, your body absorbs liquids better than pills, because they do not require digestion. This is especially helpful to individuals whose digestive functions may be impaired. Liquid extracts are generally fresher, as an herb can be used in its original state rather than dried and ground into a powder. Liquid extracts also last longer, providing full-strength potency up to five times longer than capsules.


So now that you know why, let’s get into to how. Liquid herbal extracts are convenient and easy to use; many come with a top that also functions as a dropper. You can take some extracts alone or you can add the instructed amount to a glass of water or your favorite juice. Getting a dose of beneficial herbs is that simple.
