I recently received a question about Concentrace. It reads
Read the reviews about Concentrace on I Herb site and many speak of the bitter taste. How many drops do you use daily and how do you camouflage the taste? As always thanks for your knowledge. Martha
Martha, it is bitter if you take it off a spoon. I made that mistake once and I won’t do it again! lol!
Instead, hide it in your foods. Add it into any food you can get it into instead of taking it off a spoon.
To drinking water, I add a few drops per gallon. I normally add one drop per 8 ounces in my own water, more in tea, and a lot more in milk and smoothies. You can get ten drops into a tall glass of raw milk.
For soups and stews, rice and other solid foods, I try to add 2-3 drops per serving when I add the liquid to the dish. With rich dishes, you can get away with more. Start there and adjust it to your family’s taste.
So in a day’s time, I take Concentrace in every meal and snack and each sip of drink. I probably take in 40-50 drops a day, all without having to gag it down off of a spoon.
I add it to the water in my Berkey (after filtering) and I add about half a teaspoon, I think, which ends up being 1/4 tsp a gallon. I also add it to my supplement cocktail in the morning (EmergenC, CLO, some herbs) and I don’t notice it at all there. I don’t find it bitter at all, but sometimes I can kind of taste it in the water a bit.

OK, I really have to get some…can you tell me how this is better than taking salt, or a multi vitamin? Are there things in it that you can’t get anywhere else?

While reading this I almost felt as if I was reading something I could have written! I do put it in most foods and drinks in my household also. I’ve never tried it in raw milk. I put drops in the tea kettle, coffee, grains, beans, and soups.
Why if you are cooking foods the way they should be cooked and eating a well balanced diet do you need to use supplements like Concentrace? The reason I follow blogs such as yours is to learn how to eat as healthfully and natural as possible. I don’t understand the need for supplements. Please enlighten me.

Cynthia, due to poor farming practices, many regions of the country have soil that has been stripped of some minerals, particularly trace minerals. Tests show that even organic produce today has less minerals than food did in the 40s and 50s. I live in an area of the country that is particularly known for lacking of silicon, so I’m always sure to eat extra foods containing it and make sure I take my mineral supplements.
