Herbal Capsules


The Essiac formula is an immune system boosting herbal supplement, containing traditional medicinal herbs used by the Canadian Ojibwe. A nurse, Renee M. Caisse, was given the herbal combination by a patient, from which she developed an original formula using the herbs as a drinkable liquid. The Essiac traditional herbal medicine is available in either liquid or capsule form, in equal strength. You may find the Essiac Herbal Capsules are more convenient to take: ideal for use at work or while travelling.

The liquid Essiac formula was previously sold as "Extract Formula" and is now marketed as "Herbal Extract". This is the same product and formula with a new name. 

Similarly, for the type newly marketed as "Essiac Herbal Capsules,” this is the SAME formula formerly marketed as "Essiac Vegetable Capsules" and as "Renemcaisse."


  • Immune System Support
  • Convenient pill form (ideal for travel)
  • Stays fresh longer than the Powder and Extract formulas
  • Contains 18-22% more potency than the Powder formula
