Digestive inflammation? Indigestion? Think of calendula and think of relief. Studies out of Germany have shown that calendula can prevent swelling and inflammation of the lining of the stomach. Researchers are also starting to take a look at this beautiful flower and consider its use for stomach ulcers. Stay tuned!
Each ml contains 200 mg of organically grown calendula flowers (Calendula officinalis). It is a 1:5 flower extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water.
Calendula is used traditionally in Herbal Medicine to help relieve inflammatory conditions of the digestive system.
For best results, take calendula on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Adults 18 and over: take 2 ml, 2 times per day.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of freshly boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, digestive drink!
Caution: Do not use if you are pregnant or allergic to plants of the daisy family. Please talk to your healthcare practitioner before using calendula. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse.
