Global Herbs conduct research into herbs and their properties

At Global Herbs we and our partners need to know exactly which natural chemicals are in the plants we use.  Only when we know this can we pick exactly the right species of a herb and the right quality of that plant to do the job we need.  If we pick poor fennel seeds even our horses will not like them and they certainly will not help a rumbly tum at all.

Fingerprinting  Global Herbs’ suppliers work by taking some leaf, stem or bark and soaking them in a solvent.  This moves the plant chemicals into liquid form and makes them measurable in a ‘fingerprint’.  A drop of the resultant liquid is placed on some filter paper and the way that the chemicals in this liquid flow through the filter paper is measured by complicated machines using Chromotography.  Different chemicals in the plant flow at different rates through the filter paper and even emit different colours.  In this way each chemical or group of chemicals can be isolated and their levels in the plant assessed.  Only be measuring a plant’s fingerprint in this way can we really understand its quality and efficacy.

The Formula.  It is very important to know what is in the plants we use. However, there is more.  Plants can synergize with each other.  This is extremely important and means that the combined effect of herbs when used together can be a lot more than their effect individually.  We can picture this situation in terms of mathematics. Normally 2+2=4.  But with synergy 2+2 may equal 10 or more. Synergy can be seen in all…
