How does Nature's Answer verify the authenticity of the herbal ingredients used in their product?

Utilizing Advanced Botanical Fingerprint Technology™, these authenticated samples each serve as the standard by which all incoming raw materials are judged.
Why does this extract look different from one I've previously purchased?
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.
Can I take several Nature's Answer Extracts/Formulas at once?

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.

With Nature’s Answer® formulations, the potency of an herb is not compromised in an alcohol-free extract.

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.
