Why Tinctures?


Herbal liquid preparations offer considerable advantages over other forms of administration:


Minimal processing during manufacture: Thus truly reflecting the natural spectrum of healing elements. Retention of many beneficial healing components, as some concentration steps to make powered extracts use high heat that can damage these delicate actives; and organic solvents used for extraction may have a detrimental effect on health as well as the integrity of the herb.

Higher potency: Stronger yield of actives in solution providing superior therapeutic results.

Superior bio-availability: Rapid absorption in to the blood and lymphatic system through mucus membranes in the mouth.

Convenience of delivery: Tinctures can be taken anywhere anytime. There is no need to boil water to make a tea or any other lengthy process, other than placing the drops in the mouth with a little water.

Dose flexibility: the strength of the dose can adjusted easily for acute and chronic situations and the same formula can be administered to children by simply adjusting the number of drops given.

Storage: Tinctures are the herbs’ healing active ingredients in solution. This reduces the amount of space needed to store the bulk herb. Instead of carrying a bulky tea around with you, you can have a convenient 50ml tincture in your pocket or bag for your next dose.

Long shelf life and stability: A herbal medicine in tincture form will retain its potency far longer than other methods of packaging and storage such as encapsulation and tableting. A well manufactured tincture in a good grade of ethanol will last anywhere from 3-6 years depending on storage conditions – although I do hope most people would have used their herbal medicines by then and not stored them in the back of the cabinet! Herbs in capsules once the bottle has been opened generally have a shelf life of 3-12 months due to oxidation which is why we stabilise our herbal extracts in a based of Barley Grass, Fulvic and Ionic Minerals. Tablets tend to be a bit longer: 3 -24 months. This is also highly dependant on the type of herb!

Purdue University Fact File On Artemisia

2016-02-01
Common Names

English: annual wormwood, sweet annie, sweet wormwood

Chinese: qinghao, huag hua hao

Scientific Names

Species: Artemisia annua L.

Family: Asteraceae (Compositae)

Uses

Used traditionally in China to treat fevers and hemorrhoids. Used in the crafting of aromatic  wreaths, as a flavoring for spirits such as vermouth, and as a source of essential oils for the  perfume industry.

 Human (pharmacological and antioxidant activities)

Mainly as the source of artemisinin (qinghaosu), an important natural sesquiterpene lactone with antimalarial effect against susceptible and multi-drug resistant Plasmodium spp.

 Current  research also shows that artemisinin drugs are effective against cancer, Leishmania (1).

In addition, A. annua has a high content of flavonoid compounds which are responsible for its high antioxidant activity. There are potential uses of the Artemisia annua plant extracts for humans and livestock based on the synergistic effects of flavonoids,  artemisinin precursors, etc., including antimalarial effects reported for the A. annua traditional  tea .

Despite the use of traditional tea preparations not being recommended as a replacement for the WHO’s recommendation use of artemisinin-based

combination therapies (ACT) it deserves further investigation on its combined use with other  non-artemisinin drugs commonly used in ACTs.

 In addition, A. annua leaves and crude extracts have been reported to be a good source of antioxidants being among the four medicinal plants with the highest ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) level among other medicinals

This high antioxidant capacity is probably due to the high content and diversity of its leaf flavonoids, including the newly-reported C-glycosyl flavonoids as a possible component of  the antioxidant and antiviral activity. Flavonoids have been reported to be responsible for more of the antioxidant activity of leafy vegetables and herbs than vitamin E, C, or glutathione.

Livestock (anti-parasitic and nutritional potential)

Artemisia annua and artemisinin uses for the livestock industry are currently in expansion based on current reports of its anti-protozoal, anti-bacterial and antioxidant activities of the plant, its extracts, and its essential oil.

Some examples include Babesia Eimeria or coccidiosis and the trematodal blood fluke Schistosoma spp, bacteria.

Recently, different tissues of the plant have been analyzed for its potential use in animal feed and scored high values for antioxidant capacity (ORAC and total phenolics)  and as source of aminoacids, with negligible amounts of anti-nutritive components such as  phytates and oxalates

Toxicity

Artemisinin has no reported toxicity if taken in recommended doses for short periods in the treatment of malaria(Meshnick, 2002). In humans, artemisinin has been effective against Plasmodium in doses of about 30 mg/kg BW, but it has poor bioavailability and a short half-life being quickly eliminated from the body. Dosages are recommended throughout the day at least 3 times a day for effective treatment.

Artemisinin derivatives (dihydroartemisinin, artesunate, artemether, arteether) present better bioavailability and antimalarial activity than artemisinin, but have different safety margins than artemisinin. The bioavailability and half-lives also vary with the delivery system (intramuscular, intra-venous, intra-peritoneal, oral).  There are many other compounds in Artemisia which present antiparasitic activities not just Artemisin
