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.

Olive leaf tincture
Olive leaves have been used as a natural remedy for thousands of years. Traditionally, olive leaf (Olea europaea) has been used as hypotensive (to reduce pressure), hypoglycemic (for lowering blood sugar), diuretic and antipyretic (for lowering the temperature).
It is obtained from fresh olive leaves which guarantees the utilization of its highest quality ingredients.
In addition to a lot of plant nutrients and a very effective ingredient in oleuropein, there are at least 11 other, important antioxidants. Oleuropein – the most active medicinal compound from olive leaf responsible for the bitterness of the fruit and which is mainly related to therapeutic activity. Compounds present in the olive leaf are generally thought to strengthen the immune system, and numerous scientific papers attribute to oleuropein various biological effects – antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, cytotoxic.
The bioavailability of oleuropein (the degree of absorption in the small intestine) is very high and is about 50. In a document published in 2011, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) (EFSA Journal 2011;9(4):2033) confirmed the influence of oleuropein and olive leaf leaf extract on the prevention of the process of oxidation of LDL (low density lipoprotein, so-called bad cholesterol) associated with the formation of plaques on the walls of blood vessels. Also, today olive leaf is one of the few herbal remedies that has been clinically studied in the treatment of hypertension. In addition, oleuropein has an extremely strong antimicrobial activity, especially against viruses and bacteria that attack the digestive and respiratory systems. But he also balances the immune response. Olive leaf extract itself also has a beneficial effect in healing injuries, which suggests that it helps to rebuild the tissue after the infections themselves.
The analyses also showed that olive leaf extract has a quadruple antioxidant value of vitamin C and approximately double the antioxidant value of green tea and grape kernel extract, which are very popular antioxidants.
Application: we use the tincture of olive leaf by driping 15 drops in 100 ml of water or tea. After one bottle of olive leaf tincture is consumed, it is necessary to pause for 7 days, and then a new bottle of tincture can be continued.
