Product Information

With one of the most comprehensive herbariums in the world, Nature’s Answer® has identified Mother Nature’s unique botanical fingerprint on over 800 plant reference standards. Utilizing Advanced Botanical Fingerprint Technology™, these authenticated samples each serve as the standard by which all incoming raw materials are judged.
Veggie capsules are made from plant-derived cellulose, which is free of soy.
All of our products have a specific expiration date imprinted on the bottom of each bottle. As long as they remain unopened, herbal extracts generally remain fully potent for 2 years after date of manufacturing. However, for its best-intended purposes, we recommend using any product before its expiration date.
Unless a product specifically states “Refrigerate After Opening,” we suggest you do not refrigerate. Keep at room temperature: 68 to 77°F (20 to 25°C).
It is common for batches of a particular herb to differ slightly in appearance and uniformity of color due to the nature of the herb itself, as herbs are plants/plant parts. Depending on the geographic region and time of the season an herb is harvested, it is not unusual for different batches of the same herb to differ slightly in their physical appearance and characteristics including color, aroma, texture, etc. Herbs are natural. Just as color and physical characteristics may vary in nature, so does the appearance in the finished herbal/botanical supplement.
The alcohol percentage varies by product, and is clearly stated on each label. The alcohol content in the majority of Nature’s Answer® products ranges from 12-15%.
With Nature’s Answer® formulations, the potency of an herb is not compromised in an alcohol-free extract. Nature’s Answer’s Alcohol-Free Liquid Extracts are made in the same manner as our Low Alcohol Extracts by using the optimal ratio of alcohol for each plant to maximize its potency and value to the consumer. After this initial evaluation, we then use our Bio-Chelation® cold process to completely eliminate the alcohol from the finished product resulting in an equally-as-potent Alcohol-Free Extract.
In general, it is usually safe to take several herbs and herbal extracts together without negative interactions. However, we recommend you consult your healthcare practitioner before use, especially if you are taking other medications, pregnant, nursing, planning any medical procedure, or have a medical condition.
The glycerin in our products is derived from palm.
Although the majority of Nature’s Answer® products may be safe for a pet, they are specifically formulated as a dietary supplements for human consumption based upon human’s dietary needs, not animals! We suggest you consult the veterinarian to determine if a specific product would be suitable for your pet and how much should be administered.
Alcohol Free Liquid Herbal Extracts: Nature’s Answer was FIRST to introduce Alcohol-Free Herbal Extracts in the Natural Product marketplace in 1972. We produce an extensive range of premium-quality, highly concentrated liquid herbal extracts in alcohol-free form. Some companies offer Alcohol-Free Extracts that are glycerites, which means glycerin is used as the extracting agent. By comparison, Nature’s Answer®’s Alcohol-Free Liquid Extracts are made in the same manner as our Low Alcohol Extracts, assuring the optimal ratio of alcohol for each plant to maximize its potency and therapeutic value.  Then we utilize our proprietary Bio-Chelation® cold process which completely eliminates the alcohol from the finished product. We add palm-derived glycerin at the end of the process to ensure optimal stability and shelf-life.

Low Organic Alcohol Liquid Herbal Extracts: Liquid extracts are a time-tested and convenient delivery system for herbs. Alcohol has traditionally been used as the extracting agent because it is one of the most effective natural solvents, releasing all of the choice constituents from the extraneous fiber and cellulose of the plant. Our process allows the specific active constituents to become more bio-available to the body. Nature’s Answer® uses the exact ratio of alcohol for EACH plant to maximize its potency and therapeutic value. By employing our proprietary Bio-Chelation® cold process, we’re able to effectively reduce the levels of alcohol in the finished product, enabling us to offer LOW ORGANIC ALCOHOL Herbal extracts with only 12-15% Organic Alcohol.
