What are Liquid Extracts?

Liquid extracts are primarily created by combining herbs with a mixture of purified water and alcohol. The liquid component in the extraction procedure is called the menstruum. The ratio of plant material to menstruum varies depending on the herb chemistry. The valuable, naturally available, bioactive medicinal chemistry is then concentrated into the liquid extract.

Why Do You Specialize in Liquid Extracts Rather Than Capsules or Tablets?

The medicinal constituents within an herbal liquid extract are much easier to absorb and assimilate because the plant material has been "predigested" through the extraction process. Herbal medicine enters the body through the blood stream in an alcohol/water extraction medium, increasing and accelerating absorption. Our herbs are kept as whole as possible until the day that they are put into extraction; assuring that the herbs potency goes into solution and is not lost through the oxidation process.

Why is a Liquid Extract considered more potent?

In the production of capsules and tablets, herbs are ground to a fine powder, and because of this, they are subject to oxidation and subsequent loss of potency throughout the shelf life of the product. Also, some herbs are hard to digest. People with health problems, or poor digestive systems, may not be able to fully absorb and assimilate the herbal properties within a capsule or tablet.

Why Do You Use Alcohol in Your Liquid Extracts?

We use organic alcohol in our liquid extracts for three reasons:

  1. Alcohol is a fantastic natural preservative. It helps to retain the integrity and potency of the extract for up to five years.
  2. Alcohol is a very effective edible solvent for extracting medicinal chemistry from the herb material into solution.
  3. Taking herbal medicine extracted in alcohol allows for the absorption of the medicinal constituents directly into the blood stream, bypassing the digestive system. This greatly increases the bioavailability of the active constituents, along with accelerating adsorption.
