119- Using Potent Herbs to Enhance Performance with Logan Christopher

When you use a supplement that contains different herbal blends, you may notice that the blend has different ratios of strength of the herbs.

For example, you might see an extract that has a ratio of 2:1, or even 7:1. Sometimes you might see the amount of an herb that was used per serving size, such as 1.5mL.

These are indicators of the strength or potency of the formula. To achieve different results in the body, different strengths are used, and you'll see a wide range of options on different products.

What Logan Christopher specializes in though is creating potent formulas that help to boost performance.
