Are Tinctures and Extracts Effective?
Our bodies utilize about 98% of herbal extracts/tinctures but only about 50% of capsule and tablets. Tinctures are far more potent due to the large concentration of herbs in a smaller dose
Whether preparing a tincture or an extract depends on the plant and whether the leaves, flowers,root or fruit is being used. We use the old-fashioned cold process method which is time consuming but well worth it.
The difference between a tincture and an extract is that tinctures are always made with alcohol as the solvent. Any other solvent used, the preparation is an extract, not a tincture
If you are taking any prescription medications, it's important to check for potential interactions with herbs.
