  • How to Take Herbs - Product Forms and Suggested Servings

    Product Forms

    Most HomeGrown Herbalist products are sold in three forms powders, tinctures, and capsules. People often ask which form is best. The truth is, it matters very little how we get herbs into our body but there are some advantages to each form.
     

    Powders: Powders are the least expensive form. Powders can be made into teas or tinctures or you can just put the powder into a little juice or water and drink it.

    Tinctures: Tinctures are alcohol extracts of herbs. They act a little more quickly in the body and are very portable. Tinctures can be taken alone or mixed with a little juice or water.
     

    Capsules: Capsules are my least favorite form personally. I believe that many herbs are more effective if capsules aren't used.

    Any of the above forms can be mixed with your morning smoothie or with yogurt, apple sauce, etc... Tinctures mix really well with these products: Barleans Seriously Delicious Omega-3 Fish Oil. This is a great way to get tinctures into children and adults who are sensitive to yucky herb flavors.

    Recommended Servings for Humans

    For chronic or maintenance issues, twice daily is usually sufficient. For acute situations, dosing can be done more frequently.

    Herbs and Adults

    Powders for Adults: 1-2 rounded teaspoons 2-3 times daily.
    Tinctures for Adults: 1/4 to 1 teaspoon 2-3 times daily.
    Capsules for Adults: 4 capsules 2-3 times daily.

    Herbs and Children

    I don't recommend herb use in children under two years of age without consulting a qualified practitioner. When I do use herbs for children. I dose them based on weight compared to an adult...1/2 an adult...1/3 of an adult etc...

    Herbs and Pets

    All of our formulas were created so that they could be used in either humans or in dogs and cats. Most dogs will eat herbs willingly if the powdered form is mixed with a little wet food. Tinctures can also be used. Most cats are very resistant to taking herbs willingly. For chronic or maintenance issues, twice daily is usually sufficient. For acute situations, dosing can be done more frequently.
