|Active compounds||The extract is made only from roots, and it is standardised to the highest content of vitanolids in the world (>5% by means of HPLC). Thanks to this, the product has a high therapeutic quality.||The content of active compounds can be distorted by additional elements in the leaves. The apparent high content of active compounds can originate from the less-accurate analyses associated with the gravimetric method.|
|Natural compounds||The unique extraction process allows the obtaining of the extract with the full spectrum of actions, leaving the natural ingredients of the plant intact. Therefore, the product is rich in nutrients such as fructo-oligosaccharides, vitamin A, amino acids, calcium, and iron.||Some ingredients are often lost during extraction.|
|The extraction process||The extraction is without alcohol or chemical solvents, based "Green Chemistry" principles||The extraction process sometimes requires the application of harsh chemicals and solvents, the traces of which are difficult to remove from the final product.|
|Status||Certified by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as 100% organic||It does not have an organic certificate, mainly due to the use of alcohol in its extraction|
