View Full Version : Dried herb instead of extract
01-17-2009, 02:27 AM
I used to take bladderwrack extract for my thyroid. The extract contained alcohol which I no longer want in my body so I bought some dried bladderwrack. Would swallowing it plain (not concerned with taste- I can handle it) be the same as taking an extract? How do I know how much to take?

I think making a "Tea" would be better.

How would I compare amounts?

in my herbal reading an extract is a much more concentrated form then the whole plant , the extract usually being the distilled steam of many pounds of the plant to create like one ounce extract . so the whole dried version would logically take alot more imo . but ide check at www.mountainroseherbs.com for info . ive alot of respect for their opinion / company in my readings / dealings with them .
