It is important that the root is harvested and processed at the right time or potency can be lost. The ideal time to harvest the root is at 6-7 months old. The roots are washed, crushed, air-dried and then milled into a fine powder. Processing temperatures do not exceed 45°C during production, therefore the product remains raw.
