Why choose Crystal Star whole herb formulas?
We only use whole herbs in our formulas. Most whole herbs, as edible plants, are as safe to take as foods. As nourishment, whole herbs offer the body nutrients it may not receive, either because of poor diet, or environmental deficiencies in the soil and air. As therapy, whole herbs are body balancers that work with the body functions, so that it can regulate itself. Only the whole herb can give the whole benefit!
Safety & Effectiveness
You can rely on Crystal Star® whole herb formulas for safety and effectiveness. The value is in the formula, not simply one or two chemicals within it, no matter how potent they are. A combination of whole herbs offers protective features that help balance out any adverse reaction from an isolated plant constituent.
Low probability of side effects or interactions
Whole herbs are really foods, offering a rich variety of healing elements with little risk. Occasionally a mild allergy-type reaction may occur as it might occur to a food, a personal response to a certain plant. We don’t normally expect a whole herb combination to interact with a drug anymore than we expect foods to interact with a drug. Still, we always suggest you consult with your physician before starting a self-help program.
