Pearl Powder (sustainable, freshwater)
Pearl is a revered longevity food that has been used for centuries by Taoist Herbalists to support one’s inner and outer radiance. It is an excellent source of minerals including calcium, zinc, iron, selenium, and amino acids. Pearl has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and helps to support the body’s natural collagen production, even and clear skin, strengthen bones, and support the nervous system, healthy sleep cycles, and Shen (Spirit).
Why Do we use “Levigated” Pearl?
Our Pearl Powder is “Levigated” meaning it is micro-ground to nano-proportions for optimum bio-availability. We source it from sustainable, freshwater farms. This technique now used is known as levigation, where high grade pearl is ground in water using a circular motion until the fine powder becomes suspended in water. Once the water is removed, it is separated from the powder from non-suspended heavier powder. More water is added and this process is continued until all the pearl is extracted (goes into suspension). This process allows the pearl to become a bio-available source once dried and this “levigated” Pearl powder is almost nano-sized and is thus very easy for the human body to absorb
