Nature’s Way Brands launches line of single-herb powders
Nature's Way Brands on Wednesday introduced a new line of Single Herb Powders made with premium, dried herbs. The full line includes three herbal powders, selected for their unique health properties: Standardized Turmeric Powder to support joint health, Beet (Beta vulgaris) Root Powder containing energy-supplying sugars and starches and Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder for internal cleansing.
Sales of herbal powders have been rapidly increasing, solidifying the drinkable powders as an emerging supplement industry trend. "Consumers are demanding high-quality herbal powders because they can easily be added to the beverages people are already drinking," stated Christopher Oswald, licensed nutritionist at the Green Bay, Wis.-based supplier. "At Nature's Way, we are committed to bringing consumers herbal innovations that allow them to get the benefits of their favorite supplements in new and convenient ways."
[quote-from-article] The new line of single herb powders is formulated with whole herbs as they're found in nature, preserving the Nature's Way pledge to quality and transparency while optimizing the health benefits of each powder.
These powders quickly dissolve in any beverage, making it easy to absorb the wellness benefits of turmeric, beet root or activated coconut charcoal. The new powders are now available at select grocery and natural food retailers nationwide.
