Why Alcohol Based Tinctures?
The true definition of a tincture is a liquid extract in an alcohol base. Alcohol is used to extract a wide range of constituents that are present in plants, such as essential oils, resins, alkaloids, and a host of other phytochemicals. We love alcohol based liquid extracts because they provide a number of distinct benefits.
Quick Absorption: Alcohol extracts deliver therapeutic benefits faster than other liquids by removing phytochemicals out of the plant and making them available for immediate absorption. The alcohol base is able to partially bypass the digestive process so that your body can begin absorbing the the liquid as soon as it reaches the mucous membranes in your mouth, stomach, and small intestine.
Taste and Smell: Alcohol extracts are a more authentic representation of the plants that are featured in the tincture. They impart the herb’s smell, taste, color, etc. This is because the tincture will closely match the make-up of the plants from which they are extracted. This may feel a bit foreign to new tincture users, but tasting these flavors can enhance the effects of the tincture! Many people find that the flavor of herbs is an acquired flavor and that they rather enjoy the suite of botanical notes in a tincture over time.
Flexible Dosing: Liquid extracts make it easy to titrate a dose that is specific for your needs. Because you will absorb the phytochemicals relatively quickly in an alcohol base, you can more easily gage if you will require more, or if you have found the perfect dose for your needs.
