At Paradise we know that the end product is only as good as your starting material. We obtain our herbs from special alliances we have built all over the world. Our herbs are grown where they are indigenous; either ethically and ecologically wild crafted or naturally cultivated without the use of any chemical fertilizers, pesticides or preservatives. For example: Our Ayurvedic herbs Turmeric, Ashwagandha and Holy Basil are from an isolated and pristine environment at the base of the Himalayans, or we obtain our Ginger from the Ecuadorian rain forest where it is ethically wild crafted. It is this total combination of factors: climate, soil, pristine and natural growing environment that produce the outstanding quality of all our herbs. But we dont stop there.
Our end product after extraction is a True Full Spectrum extract, although we measure standard marker compounds in most of our extracts we never fractionate or isolate. We believe in keeping all the synergistic components in the balanced ratios nature intended. We know that in many cases it is not evident which components are to be credited for the clinical effect, or if several components must act synergistically, therefore the whole root extract is always regarded as the active ingredient. It is a central philosophy of traditional herbalism to trust in the wisdom of nature to provide the most complete medicines for humans. Unlike the conventional Pharmaceutical Industry that has sought to isolate compounds to create new drugs, we believe the whole herb is the medicine and is supplying all the Health benefits. For example, studies have shown that a True Full Spectrum herbal extract of Panax Ginseng consistently outperforms an extract comprising only isolated ginsenosides. This illustrates that polysaccharides and other active constituents in Ginseng play an integral role in its clinical efficacy. Also, research analysis reveals a component in Panax Ginseng called panaxydol to inhibit cell cycle progression of human malignant tumor cells. We believe this is scientific proof for True Full Spectrum preparations as compared to fractionated isolates only containing the ginsenosides and possibly lacking some of the benefits.**
