Our Herbal Tinctures are an excellent way to ingest different types of herbs and superfoods.
Tinctures are made in several different ways, with a variety of strengths and extraction liquids. Tinctures work best with some herbs as they can be better at extracting certain nutrients and provide a good way of ingesting them by bypassing the gut.

What are Tinctures & How to Use Them?
Tinctures are liquid extracts made from herbs and plants. They are highly concentrated which means that the dosage of them can be quite small yet effective.
Tinctures can be made in a number of different ways, most commonly by steeping alcohol, water, and the herb or plant together for a period of time, the liquid from this process is the tincture. The alcohol used in the steeping process actually draws out the active ingredients in the plant, which allows them to concentrate as a liquid.
The dosages vary by tincture type; however, they are commonly taken by either adding to a small glass of water, or directly under the tongue. By taking the tincture directly under your tongue, you are letting it absorb into your bloodstream making them faster acting.
While the benefits of tinctures vary depending on the superfood, the high concentration means that your dosage can be lower and less frequent than other forms of superfoods.
