Frequently Asked Questions:
Paradise Herbs' ORAC products now say 40,000 ORAC. Is their formula different?
Label changes from 12,000 ORAC to 40,000 ORAC. Initially ORAC values were based on 1 oxide radical. But now with the new improved industry standard that can test total ORAC values (five oxide radicals), Paradise Herbs updated their label to reflect that versus their previous label. Their formula has not changed, but the testing protocol has been upgraded and Paradise Herbs' product demonstrated over 40,000 total ORAC which is what is now reflected in their updated label. Of course their product is still Lab Certified by Brunswick Labs whom are experts in ORAC testing.
Which Paradise Herbs products contain gluten?
Gluten concerns arise when wheat, barley and oat products are being used such as in Paradise Herbs' ORAC Energy Greens and Protein & Greens. The wheat and barley juice powders used in their product are harvested from young grasses before the gluten containing endosperms develop and are considered by the suppliers to be gluten free. However there is always a chance for some gluten with these ingredients and growers do not want to guarantee otherwise. Paradise Herbs has recently sent products out for gluten testing and they are still pending results. Previously they did this test and they came in with a result of 23ppm and in order to make a gluten free claim you have to be under 20ppm. It really also depends if a person is deathly allergic to gluten or just has a gluten sensitivity, in which the latter would not have any reaction to such a small level, but Paradise Herbs would not recommend the use of any wheat and barley grass for celiac as the risk factor is to great.
What are Paradise Herbs' vegetarian capsules made from?
The vcaps are made from vegetable cellulose.
Are any of Paradise Herbs' products made in China?
All Paradeise Herbs products are made in the USA, however they do source some herbs from pristine remote regions of China as these herbs are indigenous and provide the highest quality available.
How should I store the ORAC Energy Greens?
Because their product is hydroscopic (absorbs moisture from its surrounding environment), Paradise Herbs suggests storing it in a more dry area. The fridge has moisture and could possibly clump the product if not sealed tight enough. Clumping does not effect the potency but it does make it harder to mix.
What is the base/source of the vegetable cellulose in this product?
The vegetable cellulose is in regards to the capsules. The capsules are high-quality, high performance HPMC (hypromellose) capsules.
Does Paradise Herbs use a cotton insert for their vitamins?
Paradise Herbs uses a food grade cellophane (A thin, flexible, transparent cellulose material made from wood pulp used in food packaging and wrapping) with their liquid vcaps in place of cotton.
Does Paradise Herbs use fillers or binders in their products?
Paradise Herbs does not use any fillers or binders. Paradise Herbs prides themselves on the purity of their products and strive to deliver the greatest and purest products possible,Paradise Herbs add flavors or sweetners to their products?
Paradise Herbs' Orac Energy Greens contain 1 gram of sugar. It is very low and from the antioxidant fruit extracts and naturally occurring polysaccharides that are good for helping to build the immune system. Paradise Herbs does not add any flavors or sweetners.
Is it safe to give Paradise Herbs products to a child?
Paradise Herbs highly recommends you speak with a medical practitioner before giving their formula to children. On a side note, they are currently working on a children's formula.
The capsules are colored instead of clear. Is this normal?
Yes it is normal. The color added in the capsule is a vegetable chlorophyll that acts as a light barrier to better protect the ingredients.
How long after opening a Paradise Herbs product does the potency remain at 100%?
That would depend on a number of environmental factors, but generally if kept in a stable dry place it should be fine for a lot longer than the daily serving period.
Are Paradise Herbs products caffeine free?
Their green tea leaves are picked very young when the caffeine levels are low. The finished extract only contains between 3-5% which is considered decaffeinated. So per capsule there is only about 7-12 mg. Consider this: the avg cup of coffee today contains 100 mg to 200 mg.
I'm allergic to almonds, cashews, flax, soy, eggs & dairy. Can I still use Paradise Herbs products?
Yes you can.
Can I take Paradise Herbs products during pregnancy?
Paradise Herbs would not recommend using any herbs during pregnancy without consulting a licensed medical practitioner.
Does Paradise Herbs test their products for pesticides?
Their products are tested to be free of pesticides.
Does Paradise Herbs use any magnesium stearate in any of their products?
Paradise Herbs does not use any flow agents or fillers such as magnesium stearate. They pride themselves on delivering filler free products.
Are Paradise Herbs products free of solvents?
Paradise Herbs never says without solvents, just harsh solvents. The only things they use are purified water and grain alcohol. No hexane, acetane, methane….etc.
Can I still use Paradise Herbs products after the expiration date?
Probabilities are that it is fine, but Paradise Herbs stability testing does not go beyond the expiration date. Paradise Herbs recommends purchasing another bottle.
Are Paradise Herbs' herbalized concentrates standardized?
Many of Paradise Herbs' extracts do have standardized marker compounds, but their philosophy is in keeping with an herbs constituents and not fractionizing out a "deemed" active compound. Therefore they concentrate the herb down as a whole, similar to reduction cooking, but without the temperature. In the end they are only looking to remove the indigestible fiber and concentrate all of the other compounds.
I purchased a Paradise Herbs product a year ago, substance inside the caps now seem to be rock hard. Can I still take it?
Once the seal of a bottle is opened air and water in that air will get in. The herbal extracts can get hydroscopic from this water content (very small particles of air and water, much less than you take in a breath). This will only effect the product in appearance and not effectiveness.
Can I use hot water to mix Paradise Herbs' ORAC-Energy Greens?
It really depends on the temperature you're using. Many of the ingredients used in Paradise Herbs' Greens are temperature controlled, so Paradise Herbs does not recommend using hot water to mix their powders.
Does Paradise Herbs Protein & Greens product contain calcium, and if so, how much per serving?
It only contains about 2% of the rda based on a 2000 calorie diet. That is approx. 20 mg of naturally occurring calcium.
The ORAC-Greens container I purchased was only half full. Is this intentional?
Paradise Herbs understands your concern; their ORAC-Energy Greens are made with a fluffy consistency and when the product settles through shipment and or settling on the shelf this is what happens. Although the container is half full you are still receiving the ORAC-Greens in weight. Which is what the guidelines are and Paradise Herbs follows strictly.
Are any of Paradise Herbs' products enteric coated?
None of their products are enteric coated.
