Standardized Gotu Kola Extract
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Palma Seccombe
Posted on: November 11, 2003

I am looking for a standardized extract of gotu kola containing 40 percent asiaticosides. Is this a product I can order on your website and is it in liquid form?

We don’t sell standardized extracts. The reason is that we believe that the extraction process distorts the medicinal effect of herbs in general. In order to get high analysis numbers, manufacturers extract herbs in such a way to maximize one component of the herbs, often at the expense of other, equally important components.

Here is the page to our gotu kola products, including our unstandardized liquid extract. Our extract is made with whole ingredients, done in a simple ageless method using alcohol and water.
