I've been doing this with the ParaGone I'm taking and I can tell you it kicks up the power of the herbs.
Add equal amounts of fiber (I use psylium) and olive oil (or other oil), and then mix that with the herbs until a gel-like consistency is formed. Add that to a bit of water and drink. For instance, for 2 capsules of ParaGone I use 1 tsp of fiber and 1 tsp of EV olive oil.
The gel-like mixture travels more smoothly and uniformly along the GI track. Also, the oil penetrates better the gut lining and prevents high absorption in the upper small intestine, so that a more uniform release is achieved.
Be warned, however. By doing this the potency of the herb may be increased, at least it happened to me with the ParaGone.
This technique may also be used with probiotics or other stuff. First time I did it the die-off was horrible the next day.
Hope this helps.
