How to use:
Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.
Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.
Slippery Elm Bark Powder can blended with a superfood smoothie, mixed with fruit juice, taken simply with water or sprinkled into food.
Suggested serving range is 1-4g up to 3 times a day. It is recommended that Slippery Elm Bark Powder is added to a large glass of water (300ml) as taking the powder with water increases effectiveness.
Quality and Manufacture:
Indigo Herbs Slippery Elm Bark Powder comes from trees that have been harvested in the traditional way by herbal experts. The trees used are from a sustainable source and either scheduled to be cut down or grown specifically to be harvested for their bark. After the tree has been cut down, the outer bark is stripped and the inner bark harvested. The viscous inner bark is then dried in strips with only the best bark pieces used. The bark strips are then milled into a powder which is tested for foreign bodies and other chemicals before it can be packed and shipped.
