Questions to Ask Before You Buy Thunder God Vine
We get quite a few questions from customers who want to buy thunder god vine in our support inbox at www.thundergodroot.com. This article will answer the most popular questions all in one place, and hopefully give you an answer to questions you may have before you purchase.
1.) Q: Is Your Thunder God Root Extract Safe For Human Consumption?
A. Yes. Our extract is created from the peeled root of the thundergod vine, and the poisonous portions such as the aerial parts, flowers, stems and so on, are not incorporated into the extract.
2.) Q: Is your extract process a chemical process?
A. No – our product is extracted using a water extraction method, so there are no chemicals or alcohol involved?
3.) Q: Have you had your extract tested for heavy metals?
A. Yes, we have had it tested by an independent US lab, and it passed well under federal guidelines for contamination.
4.) Q: Can I take this while I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
A. No. Do not take Thunder God Vine while you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or lactating. This extract can actually prevent pregnancy, and there is no study done that I have read on lactation during TGR consumption, so to be on the safe side I would not recommend taking this herb while you are breastfeeding.
5.) Q: Are there drug interactions?
A. This is a question you must ask your pharmacist or physician. You will want to avoid prednisone while you take TGR, and also avoid it if you are diagnosed with osteoporosis, because it may amplify bone-loss if taken for several years consecutively.
6.) Q: How do I take Thunder God Vine?
A. If you are consuming the extract powder, you can take the vine in any number of ways. You can mix it into your food, into tea or coffee, sprinkle it on a dish, or just mix it in with a little water and drink it. The taste is not very noticeable. If you are taking capsules, then you can take it with an 8 ounce glass of water at whatever time of day you choose.
7.) Q: What dosage should I be taking?
A. As I am not a doctor, I am prohibited by law to give you a recommendation on dosage. However, I do have an article on the site that references studies and my own personal use of the supplement. You can read more on that here.
8.) Q: What does the 20:1 mean on your label?
A. This is the potency of the herb. This means that it takes 20 pounds of the herb to make 1 pound of the extract. The higher the first number, the more concentrated the herb is. For example, a 10:1 extract is half as potent, and a 5:1 is 25% as potent.
