The term “standardized” in botanical extracts refers to delivering a consistent, measurable concentration of a recognized phyto-constituent. This is necessary because the natural variability in herbal source products—due to geographical, seasonal, horticultural, and post-harvest handling factors—causes natural variability in the quality and potency of finished herbal products.
Herbs like Milk Thistle, St. John’s Wort, and Echinacea are often standardized to guaranteed marker compound concentrations to provide the end consumer a therapeutically meaningful dose. However, “standardization” can also mean that herbal products provide these marker compounds at the expense of the natural array of phyto-chemistry (the Plant Intelligence) that nature has co-evolved into the herb. This can occur with herbal products that have been overly refined, purified, or even “spiked” with marker compound. At Gaia Herbs, we never purify, isolate, or “spike” any compounds within our extracts—delivering the original chemical blueprint of the herb as Nature intended.
Gaia Herbs uses only safe, ingestible, non-GMO grain alcohol and water as our solvents in our fluid extract manufacturing. We use only low temperature + low pressure methods to concentrate our herbal extracts to their desired marker concentration levels, assuring that the full spectrum of available phyto-chemistry remains in a fluid state throughout the manufacturing process. This full-spectrum array is then validated using state-of-the-art laboratory analytical techniques like HPLC and GC/MS to ensure the finished product retains this composition.
