Why Use Extracts

Tinctures-183x253Why HEAL prefers Herbal Extracts over capsules or press pills.  When using herb filled capsules or pressed pills the nutritional value diminishes from the bottles as they sit on the shelf.  Herbal extracts retain their potency; they do not have a shelf life.   The alcohol used to extract the herbal properties also preserves those nutrients indefinitely.   When stored in amber bottles herbal extracts have retained their value for a hundred or more years.

anxiety-herbs-lgExtracts are quickly and easily assimilated into the system.  Even the most debilitated individual will have no problem absorbing the nutrition from the alcohol extracts.  Where the herb filled capsules or pressed pills must pass through the hydrochloric bath in the stomach to be broken down before they can be absorbed, this process is bypassed by the herbal extracts.  Someone with a diseased or debilitated system will not have the vitality needed to produce a strong hydrochloric bath in the stomach.  The result is fewer of the nutrients needed to rebuild the broken down systems in the body are absorbed from the food eaten.  The value of the extracts is absorbed directly into the system.

adding extract to waterHerbal Extracts are easy to use.  The liquid herbal formulas can be added directly to any drink.  The preferred way to consume the extracts is as a cup of tea.  Add the amount of the extract you desire to your favorite mug, top with hot water and your tea is ready to drink.  Sweeten with honey, or maple syrup if desired.

Herbal Extracts are Life Saving & Fast Acting.  Here are several examples of how quickly the extracts work.  An older woman with dropper in mouthheart palpitations discovered relief in less than a minute when consuming a hot tea containing hawthorn and cayenne tinctures.  Dizzy spells often end as soon as Cayenne extract enters the mouth. Muscle Spasms; Charlie horses are stopped in seconds by a dropper full or two of Lobelia taken directly in the mouth.     Adding the Digestive tonic to a glass of water for Acid reflux issues will provide relief all but instantly.  It’s like a fire hose putting out the flames as it washes from the mouth flowing down the throat and into the stomach.  These are only a few examples, for more information any of our great formulas check out the Members Area at: ladyofherbs.com.
