Phyto Power: Because. Science. And Wilderness.
We continue on to highlight the power of blueberries for mood elevation and of course brain / feverous system repair.
You have seen the recent research last week on mood elevation. Let's add to that the wild aspect of these amazing berries from the far remote areas of Alaska.
The blend is intense as we use also the leaves, roots, flowers, and yes, some stems - all the filled with nutrients that are very potent. That is what happens when plants have to survive harsh conditions - they become super plants.
Phyto Power is comprised of several species of wildcrafted blueberries, Rose hip, and Dandelion, including their leaves, stems, roots, and flowers.
Three species of Rosehip, wildcrafted, whole fruit and seeds (100% w/w), refractory dried, three Rosa species, 200mg per capsule.
Four species of Dandelion, wildcrafted, aerial parts (90% w/w), root (10% w/w) with flower, refractory dried, four Taraxacum species, 200mg per capsule.
Four species of Blueberry, wildcrafted, fruit (>90% w/w), leaves and stem (<5% w/w), refractory dried, four Vaccinium species, 100mg per capsule.
We suggest 1-2 capsules a day.
