Powdered sheep's sorrel can be used to make tinctures and other botanical preparations, but is usually encapsulated as a dietary supplement. The herb is considered nutrient dense because it contains high levels of every vitamin between A and U, as well as minerals and a significant amount of quercitin and beta carotene. Sheep's sorrel lends a lemony, tangy flavor to spice up foods and flavor tea blends. It is also one of the herbs found in the classic Essiac tea formula.
Precautions - You should not use this herb if you have kidney stones, arthritis or gout due to the oxalic acid content. Do not take in excessive dosages or for a long period of time.
