Contains alcoholic (40% ethanol) extracts of:
Rhodiola rosea, a plant whose root traditionally used in the Artic and North of Europe, is considered to be an adaptogenic tonic. It may be supportive during times of increased stress, whether physical or emotional, and may also support mood and cognition.
Withania somnifera, also known as Ashwaganda, is a plant whose root is traditionally used in Ayurveda, India’s traditional medicine. It is considered to be an adaptogenic tonic, mildly sedating, anti-anaemic, anti-inflammatory, and may support cognition.
Crocus sativus, or Saffron, a plant originally from the desert regions of Western Asia, is often called the world’s most expensive spice. It is used to flavour and colour foods, and it is only the stigmas which are used, which must be hand harvested.
However as a medicinal plant, the whole flower is used, and it has a long history of traditional use. It is believed to be supportive for a range of conditions, including depression and anxiety, and may support cognition.
Hypericum perforatum, or St John’s wort, belonging to the Hypericaceae family, is an herb common in Europe, where it is often found growing like a weed, and has a long history of traditional use and folklore. It is most commonly known for it’s mood boosting effects, and is also considered a nervine tonic and antiviral.
Please consult your health practitioner, or take the time to research whether a herb is the right plant for you, and ensure there will be no interactions with any medications you may be using.
Alcohol extracts are far superior to any other method of extraction. It extracts the most amount of the chemicals compared to any other solvent. It helps the medicine to also diffuse quickly into the bloodstream.
Alcohol is warming and medicine unto itself. To add, it also can esterify vitamins, oils and other medicinal chemicals making them more bioavailable and water soluble.
To be really specific: the amount of alcohol in tinctures is incredibly tiny. Less than you will get from eating a few pieces of bread.
If you are taking 20 drops of a 60 percent alcohol tincture every hour for an acute condition, you will get less than 2ml of alcohol over the course of a day.
If you are taking a general dose of 20 drops three times daily, this is less alcohol than you will get from eating two slices of bread.
If alcohol is a serious problem for you, then consider alternative extracts.
Please store in a cool dark place, out of sunlight, heat & air exposure.
