Ours is the only pre-made formula that contains the Sheep sorrel roots (20%) and not just the plant! Remember,a vital part of the Essiac decoction according to all accounts by those closest to and working with Rene Caisse, was the sheep sorrel ROOT (whole plant). No one and I mean virtually no one is including it in their “genuine” “original" formulations. Don’t be fooled! If it says sheep sorrel (but not root) it doesn’t contain the root!
