Gaia herbs field with tractor Founded in 1987 by Ric Scalzo, Gaia Herbs is headquartered in Brevard, North Carolina. This beautiful location was intentionally chosen because of its rich soil and climate. Amazingly, over 80% of all plant species in the U.S. can grow in this region. And, the water used to irrigate the farm flows directly from the nearby Pisgah National Forest. Gaia manufactures over 200 herbal products in a variety of consumable products—teas, liquid extracts, liquid phyto-caps, functional powders and syrups. Gaia’s Liquid Phyto-Caps® are a patented technology concentrating liquid extract into the convenience of a capsule. Liquid concentration allows for faster delivery of herbs into the body.

Purity + Integrity = Potency

Fueling their passion, Gaia’s process is defined by the belief that purity and integrity equal potency. Their full-spectrum extraction technique was developed to mirror nature. This also means their manufacturing operations go far beyond standardization. Starting with sustainably and responsibly sourced herbs from their own organic farm as well as organic farm partners from around the world, Gaia’s herbs are tested throughout the process.


All Gaia products are fully traceable. A batch ID number on the side of every bottle allows you to enter into where you can learn more about each product. From the manufacturing date, purity testing, country of origin of the raw materials, to education on the functional benefits of each herb in the formula—you’ll find a wealth of information about Gaia’s products.
