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 valerian root (Valeriana officinalis). It is a 1:5 root extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water, with organically grown cinnamon bark as a natural flavour enhancer.
Valerian helps to relieve nervousness and promote sleep.
Take valerian at bedtime on an empty stomach, which means at least 1 hour after your last meal.
Adults 18 and over: take 4 ml, 30-60 minutes 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 boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, sleep-inducing drink!
Caution: Please talk to your healthcare practitioner if your sleeplessness persists continuously for more than 3 weeks. Taking this herb at the same time as alcohol or other medications or natural remedies that might also be sedating is not recommended. Valerian can cause drowsiness. Please exercise caution if you are operating heavy machinery, driving a motor vehicle, or involved in any activities requiring mental alertness within 2 hours of taking it. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms persist or get worse!
