We know that taking herbal supplements requires a bit of research. That's why we've compiled some of our most frequently asked questions from our customers to help you on your journey to taking herbal supplements to improve your health. Read our most popular questions/answers below. If you have a question that is not listed below, please feel free to call us at (888) 528-8615.
How long will my herbal formula last?
Typically a 2 oz. bottle (if taking 1/4 tsp. 3 times a day) will last 2 weeks.
A 4 oz. bottle will last 4 weeks.
How do I store my liquid formulas or extracts?
Products should be stored in the amber bottles they come in and not exposed to sunlight. Refrigeration is not necessary.
What is the shelf-life of herbal extracts?
Formulas that contain alcohol will last 3 years.
Formulas that do not contain alcohol will last 2 years.
After that, potency will decrease. We do not suggest using the product after expiration.
Will the dropper fill all the way up when I squeeze it?
When squeezed, the dropper will fill approximately 1 - 1.5 inches from the bottom and that is considered a "dropper full". One squeeze out of a dropper is approximately 1/8 tsp.
Can I take more than one formula at a time?
Most of our formulas are safe to take together. A few are even suggested to be used simultaneously (refer to the product listing). If you are taking two fomulas together that contain the same herb, simply decrease the dose by half, i.e. take 1/8 tsp. of each instead of 1/4 tsp.
What is the alcohol content of the formulas and extracts?
Our extracts and formulas contain less than 5% alcohol.
The only exception to this is products containing green black walnut Hull. In order to fully extract the green black walnuts, up to 50% organic grain alcohol is used.
Not all formulas and extracts contain alcohol (refer to ingredients list and label).
How do I evaporate the alcohol?
Place the bottle of formula/extract in a simmering pan of water with the lid off of the bottle for 10-15 minutes.
Are all of the formulas organic?
MMH formulas are not considered organic. Many extracts/formulas contain organic herbs, however the formulas are not organic due to the vegetable glycerin classification. The alcohol is organic and we use all organic herbs, unless they are not available.
Are the formulas gluten-free?
Oatstraw is the only herb MMH uses that is not gluten-free. Herbal Calcium, LiverGlow, Femme Defense, Femme Defense II, Weight Control Formula II and Relaxing Tea all have Oatstraw herb.
The alcohol and glycerin are gluten-free (the glycerin we use is made from Palm Hearts).
Do your products contain soy?
The only MMH product that contains soy is the Herbal Vita-Mom prenatal vitamins.
