Dry Extracts / Extractum siccum (ES)
- Single extract
- Tablets and capsules
The NatuurApotheek has a very large stock of single herbs in so-called dry extract form. The designation ES represents ‘extractum siccum’, Latin for dry extract. The strength of our extracts ranges from 10: 1 to 4: 1. Dry extracts are made from alcohol-water infusions.
Extracts of single plants are available as such, but most of these raw materials are used to compose a formula on order in our pharmacy. With single extracts, it is possible to make any desired composition.
Tablets and capsules
Although it is possible to deliver a dry extract in powder form, it usually is in the form of capsules or tablets, in relation to ease of use but also because of an accurate dosage.
