You might be wondering what tinctures are and how you should use them. Tinctures are liquid extracts made from herbs that you take orally, in a tea or directly with drops.
- They are the fastest way to get the most effective dose! Your body uses 98% of liquid extracts and only 39-53% of capsules or pills.
- They are much more powerful! The body does not need to break down a liquid extract, allowing more of the medicinal properties to be absorbed into the system.
- Tinctures take only 1-4 minutes to take effect. 85-90% of nutrients in liquid extracts are absorbed in 22 to 30 seconds. Capsules or pills can take from 20-30 minutes just to start to break down!
Depending on the herb, many people like to add 10-30 drops to a tea, sweet drink, or just water. This also helps with any bitter taste that can come with the extra potency of the herbs.
