What Makes Royal Break-StoneTM Royal?
We call our extracts “double strength” because most other companies do not offer the 1:1 (one part plant material to one part solvent for liquid extracts and the equivalent of one gram of herb in a 400mg capsule). They offer a 1:2 or 1:4 strength, which means two to four times as much solvent as plant material.
Royal Chanca Piedra liquid extracts are manufactured from purified water with vegetable glycerin. It is prepared from leaves freshly picks and dried especially for Whole World Botanicals. Species identification is authenticated for each lot by thin layer chromatography.
The plant material is collected in Peru and manufactured in the United States. Heavy metal content is undetectable in the Royal GraviolaTM liquid extract. Each batch undergoes Fingerprint analysis (IRTLC) and Gas Chromatography (potency testing). How the raw materials are processed is also key to product potency. At WWB, we have complete control over collection, processing, and manufacturing, and bottling. We are committed to the highest standards.
This delicate fern-like plant makes a very pleasant tasting tea. It can be taken on a regular basis for its health enhancing properties. Add a squeeze of lemon, if you like.
One cup of Royal Chanca Piedra tea, made with one gram (one teaspoon) of dried herb simmered for 15 minutes in 1 ½ cups of water is equal in strength to 30 drops of the liquid extract (one milliliter) or one capsule containing the extract from 400mg of dried herb plus almost 400mg of powdered leaf. They all work equally well.
