The three most abundant of these molecules are silbinin, silychristin, and silydanin. These compounds have two major actions: 1) they bind to the liver cell (hepatocyte) membranes and protect them from being injured by foreign chemicals, endogenous and environmental toxins and free radical damage; and 2) they enter the liver cells and enhance their ability to produce enzymes vital to the liver's proper functioning, thus speeding recovery from injury to the liver and even stimulating regeneration of liver tissue.

Native Essence Herb Company, located just outside the town of Taos in the enchanted mountains of northern New Mexico, began preparing herbal products in 1992. The company began with the Rene Caisse formula (Native Essence Tea). Since then the herb company has expanded the line to include dozens of combination formulas and over 100 single herbs.
All of Herbal Solutions™ extracts are prepared according to specific extraction procedures. Each plant is individually extracted using grain alcohol and distilled water. Some plant's bio-active constituents will dictate the concentration of alcohol used, this ensures maximum extraction. Most of our extracts contain approximately 45% alcohol.
The extraction procedures employed by Herbal Solutions™ also vary according to the individual plant and whether the plant is fresh or dry. All extracts are prepared by a slow, cold percolation process or through a long maceration, with some plants going through the process more than once to increase concentration.
Herbal Solutions™ prepares extracts to specific herb strengths, 1:2 to 1:3 for dry plants and 1:1 to 1:2 for fresh plants. The herb strength ratio is the amount (by weight) of solid plant parts (root, flower, etc.) used to obtain the final amount of extract. Thus, an herb strength ratio of 1:2 means 1 oz. of plant material is used to make a 2 oz. bottle of extract. Since many fresh plants still contain a good percentage of water, more fresh plant material will generally be used when making an extract with fresh plants.
