What is a Tincture?
A tincture is a concentrated liquid herbal extract. It is typically made by soaking herbs and other plant parts in alcohol for weeks to extract the active constituents. Alcohol is considered an excellent solvent because it is food grade and can extract herbal constituents (such as resins and alkaloids) that are poorly soluble in water. After a period of weeks, the herbal mixture is strained and the herb parts are removed, leaving behind the concentrated liquid.
What is Elderberry good for?
Elderberry is used to combat “the flu” (influenza) by boosting the immune system and helping your body fight the virus. It is also used for sinus pain, back and leg pain (sciatica), nerve pain (neuralgia), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and other illnesses and viruses.
Elderberries are a rich source of vitamins A and C, which are crucial in helping the body maintain optimal health. Plus, the bioflavonoids in our Elderberry Tonic boost the body's immune system by increasing antioxidant levels and fighting viruses that damage cell walls.
