Healthier People, Healthier Planet

Premium Quality Ingredients

Our herbs go through two standard testing protocols.

The first tests for the following classes of pesticides: organophosphates, chlorinated hydrocarbons, methyl carbamates, organonitrogens and pyrethroids (over 250 pesticides total).

The second tests for organophosphates, organochlorines, pyrethroids and the pesticide potentiator, Piperonyl butoxide (over 135 pesticides total).

If any quantity of any these pesticides is detected in a batch of an herb, the entire batch is rejected.

This means that you don’t just get herbs that are tested for pesticides, you get herbs that tested free of pesticides.

The ranchers we work with don’t use herbicides, pesticides or fungicides on their fields and they don’t inject their animals with antibiotics or steroids like bovine growth hormone.

Our grass-fed organ products come from animals grazing on open pasture with plenty of fresh air, fresh water and sunlight.

No Additives

Magnesium stearate is found in so many health products that you’d think it had medicinal value. But, don’t be fooled…

The common name for magnesium stearate is none other than ‘soap scum’. It doesn’t belong in our bodies and sure doesn’t belong in a product designed to enhance health.

Our philosophy is simple when it comes to additives and preservatives, we don’t like ’em and we refuse to use ’em.

We don’t use any fillers, binders, coloring agents, or other junk in any of our products.

Made Fresh to Order

Fresh food and herbs provide our bodies with more nutritional value, taste and smell much better, and have significantly greater healing properties than processed foods.

From the moment these fresh foods and herbs are processed, whether by cooking, cutting, grinding or any other means, they begin to degrade, losing much of their healing power.

We visually see this happen in just 30 minutes after cutting open an apple or avocado and watching it turn brown.

The more surface area exposed to the oxygen in air, the faster the spoilage.

And the longer the time between processing and consumption means more opportunity for spoilage to occur, leading to decreased nutritional value and healing properties.

Investigative studies have revealed that herbs and supplements found on store shelves have been sitting around in warehouses for 6-12 months before they are even delivered to the store for sale.

This results in a substantially inferior product that does not meet our standards.

We process orders twice a week and mark each package with the date it is processed.

When you buy products from Blue River Herbs, you can rest assured that the ingredients that go into your order are processed FRESH!

Packaged For Freshness

Pullulan is a polysaccharide produced by the fungus Aureobasidium pullulans.

Its production requires no toxic chemicals and is significantly more environmentally friendly than the process used to make gelatin and vegetable capsules.

And pullulan is starch-free, gluten-free, preservative-free and non-GMO.

Oxidation Prevention

Pullulan capsules have 300 times the oxygen barrier as vegetable capsules and 9 times the barrier protection as gelatin capsules.

Pullulan also reacts less than vegetable and gelatin capsules, preserving freshness longer.

Metal foil bags provide 4,000,000 times the oxygen barrier protection than the bottles used by most supplement companies.

And they’re 75,000 times better than the plastic with the best vapor barrier protection.

Ingredient Synergy

Most of the herbal formulas we make have a recorded history dating back more than 1000 years of safe human use.

These herbal formulas were developed by highly effective clinicians over many generations.

Each formula has withstood the test of rigorous clinical trials and each has proven effective time and again for its intended purpose.

Ancient herbalists understood that certain herbs amplify the effects of other herbs, while certain herbs reduce the effectiveness of other herbs.

This knowledge has developed into the art and science of combining herbs.

Unlike modern preparations, specific combinations of herbs as well as the specific ratios and dosages of the herbs have all been taken into consideration in developing our herbal formulas.

By combining herbs that enhance each other’s desired effects and avoiding combinations that weaken these effects, we achieve a safer and more effective product.

The ancient formulas we make were developed with a deep understanding of the root cause of imbalance and the various symptoms that manifest as a result.

Formulas were developed to restore balance to the underlying disharmony as well as eliminate the nagging symptoms.

Herbal synergy uses herb combinations that work very effectively to obtain the desired result. These herbal combinations have been passed down over centuries and their effectiveness has been verified by observation.

At Blue River Herbs, we are dedicated to bringing you the freshest, highest quality, and most effective herbal formulas discovered throughout history.
