What Are Standardized and Concentrated Extracts?


Standardized Extracts of herbal plants,
are essentially the specific molecules of the plant which do the work of the plant.
i.e., the molecules which are the active ingredients of the plant.

Natural products in various forms have been used around the planet for several millenia
for the treatment of pathological conditions or for health benefits, all over the world.

In Europe and America, plant-derived compounds -- extracts -- are the basis of at least 25% of the existing drugs.

The most well known example of the extraordinary potency in extracts of plants, i.e., herbs, is aspirin.

The effects of aspirin-like substances have been known since the ancient Romans recorded the use of white willow bark as a fever fighter.
In 400 B.C. Hippocrates recommended a tea made from the yellow leaves of the white willow tree.

Through the centiuries, as the characterization of each and all disease became more precise,
one common reoccuring re-discovery was that chewing the bark of the willow tree (salix alba)
alleviated many of the symptoms of various sicknesses (chills and fever).

The early 19th century saw an intense interest in the chemicals that
existed in a variety of plants and herbs -- natural products chemistry.

As an example, scientists discovered what was in the bark of the willow tree that relieved pain and reduced fever.
The substance was named salicylic acid.
But when people suffering from pain took just the extract called salicylic acid,
it caused sever stomach and mouth irritation.

In 1832, a thirty-seven-year-old French chemist named Charles Gerhardt synthesized a new substance -- acetylsalicylic acid
-- from a combination of salicylic acid and acetic anhydride.
The procedure was difficult and took a lot of time.
Gerhardt decided the new compound wasn't practial, so he set it aside.

Another German chemist, Kolbe, discovered an effective large scale way to synthesize salicylic acid.
Synthetic salicylic acid became a standard treatment for arthritis and gout from 1860 through 1893.
While it was an effective medication, the substance was still irritating to the mouth, throat and stomach

In 1897, a German chemist named Felix Hoffmann, (who was an employee of Bayer A.G. in Germany),
was searching for something to relieve his father's arthritis.
He studied Gerhardt's experiments and "rediscovered" the methods of creating acetylsalicylic acid
-- or aspirin, as we now know it.'

Unable to get the drug patented, Bayer registered a trade name for the new medicine, Aspirin
After Germany lost World War I, Bayer was forced to give up
the trademarks for Aspirin and for Heroin as part of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.

This all is important, because it shows the scientific basis of our products.

Our products are created -- formulated --
starting with standardized and concentrated extracts of plants
which are known for their estrogenic qualities.

We then add other plant materials, and other extracts of plants and berries,
based on German research in the 1980s which showed that certain plant material
helps other plant material to be FAR more effectve than either could be on its own; i.e., synergystic.

The result is a formulation which is FAR more potent than anything which might be achieved using store herbs;
in the same way that aspirin is FAR more potent, and FAR more effective
than just using white willow bark for pain relief.

This is molecuar potency, not just plant material.
