Info: Your Choice of Liquid or Capsules

The Essiac formula is an immune system boosting herbal supplement, containing traditional medicinal herbs used by the Canadian Ojibwe. A nurse, Renee M. Caisse, was given the herbal combination by a patient, from which she developed an original formula using the herbs as a drinkable liquid. The Essiac traditional herbal medicine is available in either liquid or capsule form, in equal strength. You may find the Essiac Herbal Capsules are more convenient to take: ideal for use at work or while travelling.

Product Notes:

The liquid Essiac formula was previously sold as "Extract Formula" and is now marketed as "Herbal Extract". This is the same product and formula with a new name. 

Similarly, for the type newly marketed as "Essiac Herbal Capsules,” this is the SAME formula formerly marketed as "Essiac Vegetable Capsules" and as "Renemcaisse."
