Nature's Evolutionary Technology
The plant-human relationship is one of great depth and complexity: over 700 million years of evolution is expressed in the diversity of flora which extends across our planet today.
As the human species emerged and co-evolved with plants over the last 100,000 - 200,000 years, ingesting them as foods, medicines, and sacraments, we became uniquely adapted to many of their phytocompounds (phyto = plant). Our body has developed a complex array of receptors that recognize and bind to specific phytocompounds, as well as enzymes that metabolize them.
Herbal alchemy is the art of transformation; an interplay of plant biochemistry, human biochemistry—and even human psychology—that brings relief to suffering and can enhance self-awareness.
The herbal alchemy within every bottle of ZiiNGLES begins with our meticulous selection of organically cultivated and sustainably wildcrafted herbs. After being harvested at their peak of potency, each herb is carefully prepared using time-honored extraction methods including maceration and cold percolation. These processes extract the full spectrum of biologically active constituents in their naturally balanced proportions. Once the extractions are complete, the individual herbs are combined together in optimal proportions to create a whole that is discernibly greater than the sum of its parts.
The alchemy of ZiiNGLES' formulation is a detailed and natural intricacy that weaves together the longstanding relationship between plants and humans for the betterment of your health and wellbeing.
Miriam the Alchemist lived in the 1st or 2nd century C.E. She devised the first distillation apparatus and her inventions and contributions have yielded long-lived practical laboratory equipment. Engraving from 'Symbola Aurea Mensae'—Michael Maier, Frankfurt, 1617.
