Liquid phytocaps offer the power of a liquid herb with the convenience of a capsule. Dual extraction technology helps deliver the broadest spectrum of herbal constituents: Supercritical CO2 extraction for fat-soluble constituents, and water and alcohol extraction for water-soluble constituents. This ensures that the extract contains the full spectrum of plant compounds.
The phrase “phytocap” means plant capsule (or veggie cap as you’ll sometime hear.) Botanica Liquid Phytocaps are highly-concentrated, alcohol-free extracts inside vegan-friendly, fast-dissolving encapsulation without gelatin.
Phytocaps offer the potency of the whole spectrum of chemical constituents that naturally occur inside the plant. They are ideal for those who don’t want to swallow many pills – the phytocaps are a highly-concentrated two per day dosage for adults. The phytocaps are first prepared as a tincture – and then go through a process of removing the alcohol and water. Imagine, for a moment, how concentrated the final product would be if the liquid (water and alcohol) are removed from a tincture; the end result is a very concentrated syrup like liquid which is then encapsulated.
Many supplements use extracts of individual compounds rather the whole herb. Rather than isolating one chemical constituent, a holistic approach ensures access to all the health benefits herbs have to offer. For example, in Botanica’s Turmeric Liquid Phytocap, turmeric is known for its remarkable and numerous medicinal benefits in the body, from antioxidant to anti-inflammatory properties, digestive and liver support. Rather than focusing solely on curcumin, known for its anti-inflammatory benefits, the turmeric phytocap uses the whole herb to ensure the full spectrum of chemical constituents including carotenoids, volatile oils, ascorbic acid (nature’s vitamin C), quercetin and many other curcuminoid compounds, such as demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin.
This one is clear and simple, if you don’t like the taste of an herbal tincture phytocaps are the clear choice.
All of the herbs used in Botanica Liquid Phytocaps are organic or eco-cultivated, depending on the herb. Before harvest, samples are tested with High Performance Liquid Chromatography to ensure the herb is at peak therapeutic activity.
