What’s good to know about Tinctures?
Tinctures are liquid extracts of plants. These are concentrated herbal preparations, inwhich the medicinal ingredients of plants are extracted (extracted) in liquid form. For the production of tinctures, alcohol added to water or apple cider vinegar is used. The production of tinctures with alcohol is a method thousands of years old and is used by all the serious herbalists in the world. Alcohol is used because the most important medicinal ingredients, such as essential oils, res pitching, steroid alkaloids and numerous other bio-chemical substances or phytochemicals, are much better dissolved in alcohol than in water (tea) or otherwise. Moreover, certain important phytochemicals from plants can only be dissolved in alcohol.
A number of advantages of tinctures:
1. Tinctures are much stronger and more concentrated than tea. Only 2-3 drops of tincture are equal, even stronger than a whole cup of tea. It is for this reason that consuming the tinctures themselves is much necessary when resolving health problems. Sometimes it is difficult, because of work and other obligations, to drink large amounts of tea. Instead of tea, then we use tinctures.
2. Medicinal tincture ingredients can be better digested and assimilated than raw plants themselves, especially if we have problems with digestion. The medicinal ingredients of tincture enter the bloodstream quickly, almost instantly. That’s why tinctures can be, among other things, first aid and emergency medicine.
3. Alcohol maintains tincture and significantly extends the shelf life, almost indefinitely. The longer the tincture stands, the greater its effect. For those who have an aversion to alcohol itself (although it is a minimum quantity) there is a very simple solution, bury your tincture in hot tea or pour hot water and all the alcohol will evaporate.
4. Unlike tinctures produced in domestic work, commercial tinctures are generally of poor quality and ineffective, as they are not prepared from adequate and unprocessed herbs, and in much smaller conceptions. Tinctures produced in domestic radiance very often can be of poorer quality, mostly due to the lower amount of plants, or the poorer quality of plants used when preparing.
