What is the best way to take powdered herbs?


Answer by  Hewitt302 (1720)

The best way it through pill form. Most powdered herbs are in clear capsules, all you do is break the capsule and dump the contents into a glass of water. With herbs like Psyllium husk, it's best to take a very small amount, and mix well with water. Make sure to consult with a doctor before taking any powedered herbs.

Since many powdered herbs can have very bitter tastes taking them in a capsule form is your best choice. You can purchase them this way or buy your own empty capsules (health food stores) and pack them with the dose you prefer. Another alternative for powdered herbs is making a tea by boiling the herb or using a tea tincture.

Most herbs can be added to all foods or liquids. If of a mild taste, and just wanted to ingest, add a little liquid such as fruit juice or even milk. To incorporate into a cooked dish, they can be sprinkles over the food in last seconds of cooking. This will ensure they aren't ruined, but heated thru.

Probably the easiest way to take powdered herbs is through capsules. You can either buy them already in the capsule. Or you can get a capsule machine which holds capsules and you fill them yourself. The second option is much messier and no guarantees on dosage.
