TINCTURES

from AMAZON HERBS®
Natural pharmacy

Herbal tinctures are generally used extensively in alternative medicine.
These are preparations of plants (or parts of plants) in a water / alcohol mixture of various ratios.
We use dry - or fresh herbs depending on the preparation.
The alcohol content is at least 45% of the tincture, so it can be kept for some years after the date of manufacturing.
Bitter melon tincture Most, but not all, preparations are in 1:4 strength; that means 1 part herbs against 4 parts solvent (water + alcohol).
All the herbs, seeds and rhizomes are wild harvested in the Amazon Rainforest by our own collecting teams.
We use USP grade (United States Pharmacopeia), naturally derived alcohol (190 proof) and pure spring water.
The menstruum composition and strength can vary for different applications.
The solvent concentrates the phytochemicals present in the plant.
We manufacture only single herb extracts.
Our herbal tinctures stand for at least 3 months before being filtered and bottled.
Tinctures from plants are fast acting (they are easily assimilated by the body) and powerful!
They are easier to use, simply add to water or juice. Tinctures are better assimilated and the alcohol used is the safest and the most effective method of extracting the phyto-chemicals from the herbs, rhizomes and seeds.
For the dose of the tinctures, go to the user page.
Herbal dietary supplements** have far fewer side effects than prescription- and OTC drugs. Many substances (botanicals) used in these supplements are generally considered as safe (GRAS) by the FDA.


TAKING TINCTURES
Tinctures help solve the problems involved with rapid medicine delivery and consistent dosing.
Although absorption by the arterial blood supply under the tongue is completed in mere seconds; taking it this way has proven to be too harsh for many patients.
Taking tincture on an empty stomach is a better way to go; the tincture is not necessarily more effective on any empty stomach, but absorption into the bloodstream will be much faster if taken without food.
Also food in the stomach significantly reduces the amount of medicine that passes into the bloodstream.
There are some exceptions though, such as Cayenne pepper tincture. Taking this tincture (or tea) on an empty stomach may cause irritation in some persons.
