Liquid Herbal Extracts - Your most effective herbal solution!!
After 30-plus years of manufacturing quality herbal medicines, Herb Pharm continues to produce primarily liquid herbal extracts.
Your Body Absorbs Liquids Better
One of the primary benefits of using liquid herbal extracts is that they do not require digestion.
You don't need to extract what is medicinal from the plant cellulose before it can be absorbed - this has already been done for you.
As you would expect, liquid herbal extracts are of particular benefit to those individuals who possess impaired digestive function.
In many situations where digestion is not optimally functioning, it simply makes little sense to give a medicine in any form, other than liquid.
What is the purpose of alcohol in liquid herbal extracts?
Grain alcohol is the best food-grade solvent for extracting and preserving many of the naturally
occurring herb constituents that are poorly soluble in water.
The food-grade grain alcohol used to prepare liquid extracts serves three specific functions.
First, alcohol is the only edible solvent that will extract and preserve many of the naturally occurring herb constituents that are poorly soluble in water, such as essential oils, resins, balsams and many alkaloids.
Second, alcohol is an excellent natural preservative, which maximizes the shelf life of the extracts.
Third, alcohol is a great carrying agent, which facilitates the absorption of the herb's constituents into the bloodstream.
How much alcohol is in liquid herbal extracts and how much alcohol am I really consuming?
The amount of alcohol in individual liquid extracts can vary from 20% to 90% depending on the herb
being extracted and its content of alcohol and water-soluble constituents.
The amount of alcohol you consume in a dose of liquid extract is actually very small.
For example, taking 30 drops of Echinacea liquid extract (alcohol content of 45% to 50%) amounts to consuming 1/65th of a can of beer or 1/85th of an 8-ounce glass of wine.
Also, if you mix those 30 drops of Echinacea liquid extract into 2 ounces of water, that mixture would contain only 0.59% alcohol.
