Sheep Sorrel Root is Essential to the Essiac Formula. Ours is 20% root.
Many companies are selling essiac today, but they are missing a very important thing - the proper sheep sorrel including the root. Rene Caisse, the woman credited with bringing essiac to the greater public, stated that the most important herb in the essiac formula was in fact the sheep sorrel.
Furthermore, Rene Caisse made it clear that the sheep sorrel cannot be just the leaves. The sheep sorrel must contain the root, and at the right proportion - 20% root of the entire sheep sorrel plant. You see, if the essiac doesn't contain the sheep sorrel with the root, the tea won't be nearly as effective.
The problem is, many herb farms will not sell sheep sorrel with the root included. We were forced to arrange for a private grower in order to obtain sheep sorrel with the root included, as most commercial herbalists do not offer the root. We are committed to producing our essiac with all of the essential components included, so we did what we had to do to make this happen.
We have been in the industry for over 30 years and specialize in essiac. We simply cannot afford to sell anything but the absolute best, as our business depends upon it!
That is why our essiac always has and always will include the sheep sorrel root.
