  3. Question

    Dawn Kinzel (verified owner)

    Would you consider butterbur a “starchy” root? I have a friend looking into herbal pain relief for her son, but he’s on a Specific Carbohydrate Diet and can’t use starch.

      I think it is starchy but I don’t think the starch would be found in the tincture.
