Most of the herbal formulas within the Caruso’s herbal range contain standardised extracts. Standardised means that the herbal preparation is guaranteed to contain a specific amount of the active component within the herb. This way we can guarantee that every tablet or capsule contains the active biological component that’s listed on our labels.
It’s important to note that standardised extracts are used in most clinical trials. With that said, whole herbs also have powerful healing properties. When using the whole herb, you receive a synergistic blend of active constituents working together.
Whether you are using the whole herb or a standardised extract, however, the main focus should be on product quality. This is why the team at Caruso’s sources our herbs from their native climates or countries. This ensures that the growing conditions are optimal for the health of the herb, and that the active constituents in the herb are at their most favourable upon harvesting.
