More What's, Whys and Hows
For thousands of years, people have used natural herbs to maintain their overall health and wellbeing. Today, Cedar Bear® has access to hundreds of herbs from around the world to help us better our health and make the most of what nature has to offer. Here are some frequently asked what, why and how basic questions about herbs, herbal supplements, and Cedar Bear.
What is Cedar Bear?
Cedar Bear is a 'main street' business that creates high quality premium liquid herbal supplements that are alcohol, soy, and gluten free, always. All of our products are FDA cGMP inspected, Kosher & Vegan certified, and Halal compliant (which means our products comply with the Muslim dietary code), and made with care in the United States. We are proud of what we do, we love what we do, and believe in the power of natural 'whole' herbs in your body and mind’s health and wellness.
What are Herbal Supplements?
Herbal supplements are a sub-category of dietary supplements, and are whole dried loose or typically in the commercial form of tablets, capsules, or liquids that contain herbs to supplement a diet that could be lacking in those herbs or the macro and micro nutrients that may not be available enough in a daily diet, or that the body needs more of to stay healthy. Just like a vitamin supplement, herbal supplements can be used to give your body the support that it needs to stay healthy.
Why are Liquid Herbal Supplements Better?
Capsules, tablets, teas, foods, and other methods of consumption are all valid methods of consuming herbs, but liquids allow herbs to be absorbed by the body quicker. Using liquid supplements means that you are introducing highly concentrated herbal components into your body that can be absorbed rapidly and begin circulating through your blood quickly. This means, while a capsule is still being digested and absorbed by the body, a user of liquid herbs could already begin benefitting from their supplement.
How Do I Use Cedar Bear Liquid Herbal Supplements?
Cedar Bear supplements come with a dropper, so all you have to do is squeeze the top of the dropper to obtain the concentrated liquid from the bottle. There will be recommended instructions on the label outside of every bottle, or you could have special instructions from a doctor that you should follow. On average, you will use 1 to 2 droppers full as directed on the bottle label, up to three times per day, or as needed depending on the supplement. Some may benefit from lower or higher doses, more or less frequently. Experimentation or your doctor can best tell you a proper dose for you as an individual.
How Do I Use Cedar Bear Kid’s Formulas?
Just like our adult formulas, kid’s formulas come with a dropper that can be used to administer the supplement. Our kid’s formula blends are great for children that cannot or have trouble swallowing pills. Using a few droppers full of our tasty supplements is easy and enjoyable. Here is the recommended use for children based on their weight:
- 1/8 tsp for children up to 50 pounds (about 1 dropper full)
- ¼ tsp for children over 50 pounds (about 2 droppers full)
How are Cedar Bear Herbs Made?
At Cedar Bear, we love herbs and take pride in the quality of our products. We produce liquid herbal supplements using a unique processing method our founder, L. Carl Robinson, a clinical & formulary herbalist, developed, called TincTract®. This method does not use alcohol at any time but instead uses glycerin, like never before thought possible, to remove maximum concentration of components from each herb.
How is Cedar Bear Different?
The Cedar Bear difference comes from our highly differentiated approach to herbal supplementation, the quality of our ingredients, and the unique results our TincTract® method results in. Our products are Kosher certified, Halal compliant and Vegan from start to finish, and never contain or have used alcohol at any time like other liquid herbal products on the market. Besides high-quality concentrated herbs, only purified water and glycerin are used in the making of our products. Not only that, but a TincTract® made product also tastes great, harnessing the full flavor of the herb, and just the herb at that. Along with being alcohol free, they are vegan, and free of soy, gluten, corn, and dairy.
What are the Benefits of TincTract® Liquid Herbal Supplements?
Liquid herbal supplements are a great way to help your body where it could be lacking. Whether your digestive, respiratory, nervous or immune system needs a boost, need a daily pick me up, or are looking for more nutritious macro or micro nutrients that you can’t get from your typical diet, herbs can provide much of what your body needs. Because they come from nature, they can be gentler on the body than pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter products when it comes to side effects, and can even be more cost effective when the nutritive 'building' nature of Cedar Bear™ TincTract® made product are taken into account.
What are Common Uses ofTincTract® Liquid Herbal Supplements?
