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 200 mg of organically grown red raspberry leaves (Rubus idaeus). It is a 1:5 leaf extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water.
Red raspberry is used traditionally in Herbal Medicine to help relieve painful or heavy menstruation and used as a uterine tonic.
Directions: Adults 18 and over: take 2 ml, 3 times per day.
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, period-friendly drink!
Caution: Please do not use if you are breastfeeding or taking ephedrine, codeine, theophylline, or any other medications. Also, it is advised that you do not use red raspberry during pregnancy unless you are being closely monitored by your healthcare practitioner. Red raspberry is not for use with children. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!
