|The word tincture comes from the Latin "Tinctura"- meaning colored herbal extract made with alcohol. Why were tinctures considered potent and safe herbal medicine throughout the centuries? First reason - tinctures offer the best way to extract and deliver nutrients in stable soluble form, optimal for absorption and assimilation. Another - tinctures retain volatile and semivolatile ingredients, usually lost in heat treated and especially reprocessed dry extracts. The importance of these ingredients for health beneficial action is hard to overestimate. In fact, the whole concept of aromatherapy is based on the action of smells and flavors.
The presence of volatile ingredients is helpful in evaluating the quality of the tincture. In the past, when modern analytical tests were not available, taste and flavor of the tincture were employed for the quality control. Indeed, after acquiring the taste, one should be able to recognize not only the formula, but also the strength of the tincture.
Due to convenient dosing, tinctures are one of the safest herbal preparations, easy to adjust to individual habits and metabolism.High bioavailability, achieved through complete dissolution of the ingredients, is one of the most beneficial features of the tinctures. It is especially useful when the absorption of vitamins and nutrients by the body is reduced due to the natural causes or malfunctions of the digestive system. Modern clinical studies show that the rate of assimilation of certain vitamins and nutrients in gastro-intestinal tract decreases with the age. The tinctures are apparently able to help overcome age-dependent reduction in nutrients absorption.
Traditional sweet tinctures offer enjoyable taste and unique profile of herbal nutrients in highly bioavailable form. Tinctures are handcrafted in small batches from raw herbs according to centuries old recipes and are rested in glass until perfect. As a result, tinctures retain volatile ingredients, often lost in dry or processed extracts, and preserve bioactive nutrients in soluble form, optimal for their absorption and assimilation. The presence of carbohydrates not only improves tincture's taste, but helps preserve tincture's qualities and protect its activity. In fact, modern studies indicate that carbohydrates help enhance the stability of nutrients and biologically active ingredients, protecting it from the oxidation and precipitation.
