Our Mimosa hostilis inner root bark (MHRB) is from a reputed source (Brazil), a company that has years of experience in harvesting and processing Mimosa hostilis root bark. This is the best quality Mimosa available on the market. We always offer a freshly harvested batch, not an old stock!
Our supplier is using sustainable harvesting methods – only one root is harvest from each plant.
The greedy suppliers however are willing to kill a whole tree for all its roots.
The pastures where our harvest comes from do not receive any chemical pesticides as the grass and herbs grow naturally during the rainy season and pests are naturally controlled by the six month dry period. Also during processing no chemicals, in fact no product at all is used.
They clean the mimosa inner root bark and transport it in boxes to the clean glass greenhouse. Then close the mimosa root bark to avoid contamination of the product. They dry the bark at 70% of shade for a few days and ground it in clean machines to a fine powder, then filter to remove the filler fibers and packed quick in plastic bags.
The fine logistic system of harvesting and processing small quantities a few times a week enables us to preserve well the functional components of the bark. By removing the filler fibers the final product becomes 30% more concentrated, so our product is in fact 130% pure mimosa hostilis inner root bark (MHRB) comparing to many other sources.
