A tincture is a liquid extract made from herbs. NittyGritty uses a high grade grain alcohol because, it is the best solvent available for optimal extraction of the herbs beneficial properties.
Tinctures when taken (drops under the tongue) are not digested but, absorbed
into the bloodstream. They do not have to be broken down by the digestive system and their beneficial properties become bio available very quickly.
A standard suggested adult dosage for tinctures is two droppers full one to two times daily.
