Q: Will the dropper fill all the way up when I squeeze it?
A "dropper-full" is not a full dropper; one squeeze out of the dropper is approximately 1/8 tsp. The dropper will fill approximately 1 to 1-½ inches. Use measuring spoon if needed.
Q: Can I take more than one formula at a time?
Most of our formulas are safe to take together; a few are suggested to be used simultaneously—refer to the formula. If it has the same herbs, decrease dose by 1/2.

Less than 5% except for products containing Black Walnut Hull extract. Not all formulas/extracts contain alcohol.

>Place bottle of formula/extract in simmering pan of water with lid off of bottle for 10-15 minutes.
Q: Are all of the formulas organic?
MMH formulas are not considered organic. Many extracts/formulas contain organic herbs, however, the formulas are not organic due to the vegetable glycerin classification. Alcohol is organic. We use all organic herbs unless they are not available.
Q: Are the formulas gluten-free?
Oatstraw is the only herb MMH uses, and is aware of, that is not gluten-free. Alcohol and glycerin are gluten free. (The glycerin we use is made from Palm Hearts.) Herbal Calcium, LiverGlow, Femme Defense, Femme Defense II, Weight Control II, Relaxing Tea all have Oatstraw herb. Also, the Weight Control Shake is not gluten-free.
Q: Why is the alcohol gluten-free?
The alcohol from Organic Wheat has neither the presence of gluten because the protein contained in the wheat is not fermentable, so it doesn't produce alcohol.

Our 8-ounce bottles do not have a dropper and is basically a refill bottle. However, we do send a spare dropper which is the 4-ounce size if you wish to use it separately. Please check your package carefully for your extra dropper.
