Health First uses a standardized 4:1 ratio which significantly reduces the number of capsules an individual needs to take in order to achieve beneficial results. Health First achieves this by extracting the active herbal constituents from the plant through liquid extraction. The insoluble and inactive ingredients are then separated from the active solid components and gently spray-dried into a powder, keeping the active ingredients intact.
Recommended dose (adults - ≥ 19 years): Take 1-2 capsules per day or as directed by a health care practitioner.
Each vegetable capsule contains:
Blessed thistle (Cnicus benedictus L.) 1,600 mg
(400 mg of 4:1 extract)
