Botanical powders are among the most commonly used natural botanical ingredients in dietary supplements. Due to a lack of dispersibility, professionals are sometimes reluctant to use these powders, which are obtained by grinding dry plant-derived raw material.

Maxime Angelucci, CEO at Natural Origins, explains how the Optifine botanical powder product range can help solve this problem.

As with all natural ingredients it is essential to pay attention to certain things when choosing a botanical powder:
