Orange Naturals Tincture Advantages
All Orange Naturals tinctures are made from organic or wild-crafted herbs. During tincture-making, our master herbalists ensure that the magic of every herb is unleashed. The result is a medicinal version of liquid gold. Each tincture is bursting with the healing power of nature. Rapid absorption of a tincture taken orally allows the body to quickly begin working to restore health on every level. The body can absorb up to 98% of the medicinal components of the Orange Naturals herbal tincture since absorption takes place immediately in the mouth. In contrast, herbs taken in capsule or tablet form much first be broken down by the digestive system and thus absorption can be significantly lower.
Each ml contains 250 mg of wildcrafted passionflower herb tops (Passiflora incarnata). It is a 1:4 herb top extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water.
Passion flower is used traditionally in Herbal Medicine as a sleep aid in cases of stress-related insomnia.
For best results, take passionflower extract on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
For those age 13 and over: take 3 ml before bedtime. For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of freshly boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, calming and sleep-inducing drink!
Caution: Please talk to your healthcare practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if symptoms persist or worsen. Definitely get in touch with your healthcare practitioner if sleeplessness persists continuously for more than 3 weeks. If you notice any hypersensitivity symptoms then please stop using this herb right way. It is strongly recommended that you do not take passionflower with alcohol or other drugs or natural health products with sedative properties. Passionflower might cause drowsiness so please exercise caution if you are operating heavy machinery, driving a motor vehicle, or involved in any activities requiring mental alertness.
