Comparison of Benefits
A Tonic Tincture is a full-spectrum, concentrated, multi-step, a triple, quadruple and often a quintuple extraction of a tonic herb adaptogen.
Traditional cultures have been making fluid extracts for over 5000 years as a standard and a tradition.
Fluid extraction has come a long way.
Water and alcohol are necessary for maximum potency of constituents.
Skip tablets, powders, 20:1, 10:1, 8:1 or % extract powders or even regular tinctures and get yourself a Tonic Tincture.
Powders are dried out and oxidized via grinding, precipitation or spray-drying. Unfortunately this greatly reduces potency as water and alcohol are required to preserve the integrity of volatile constituents.
- Many uneducated sellers offer ratio extracts such as 20:1 and market these to be 20 times as potent.
- This is incorrect: 20:1 means 20 times the raw material was used to make the powder extract. How it is extracted is what matters, not necessarily how much is used.
- Tablets are powders further rendered ineffective by binding.
Regular tinctures, as they concern tonic adaptogens, are dilute and weak in action and best for short term use during acute health issues.*
- Glycerin based "extracts" - it is actually impossible to fully extract a tonic adaptogen or anything in glycerin due to poor solubility - these other products are actually powders mixed in a glycerin base. Even some of the hydroalcoholic brands do this too. Additionally glycerin mixes are poorly absorbed compared to the small amount of alcohol used in our Tonic Tinctures.
Why is a Tonic Tincture so Dark and Thick and Full of Flavor?
A Tonic Tincture is a Pure Full-Spectrum Concentrated Multi-Step Extraction
Powder Extracts and Standardized 20:1, 10:1, 8:1 and % powder extracts
- Are heated, dried, oxidized, and inferior to a fluid extract.
- These powders are made by spray drying or precipitating a fluid extract.
- These actions render them less potent through the constituents coming in contact with air.
- In fact, because they are often concentrated for the marker of singular constituent these may actually be less potent than the raw material they were extracted from!*
- But don't take our word for it, how about an expert like Leslie Tierra L.Ac, Herbalist, A.H.G., "Interestingly and most importantly, standardizing herbs doesn't always increase their effectiveness...test of various herbs, determine that the whole plant extracts [full-spectrum] containing all the herbs' compounds are more effective then their standardized extracts."*
- But, of course where the extensive scientific research has used standardized extracts, as in ginkgo 24% or tongkat ali 200:1, one will get the studied and researched results that they seek, but they still don't work like the raw material.*
- So don't expect your powdered extracts to work like the raw material and a full spectrum liquid extraction.
Some manufacturers simply add these standardized extract powders to fluids and sell it as an full-spectrum extract!

History of Tonic Adaptogens
The history of tonic adaptogens stretches thousands of years into the long standing evidence from the scrolls, textbooks and oral traditions of ancient India, China and Tibet.
Folk use of American Indians, Russians and other cultures have incorporated these herbs and substances into their pharmacopeias.
Western Herbalism which began with the Eclectics introduced formulations and herbs to promote health and wellbeing.
Modern scientific research didn't begin until the late 1930's with the Soviet pharmacists seeking out beneficial substances that could be easily attainable, affordable and efficacious for the greater health and well-being of their county's population.
In the 1960's and 70's research became more intense in the Eastern world when China, Korea, and Japan joined the Soviets adding thousands of peer reviewed studies and clinical trials on the use and efficacy of adaptogens. By this time it had become a field of biomedical research in the Soviet Union.
Although the Western world has been slow to adopt the methods in accepting the benefits of adaptogens a couple have begun to be recognized by both scientists and pharmacists.
In the early 1990's, the German Commission E (the German equivalent of the US Food & Drug Administration) listed ginseng extract in their pharmacopeia as an herbal drug for its tonic strengthening actions and to assist the aging and elderly.
In the USA drug companies have continually developed drugs of many constituents found within adaptogens, such as Viagra being modeled after Icariin from the botanical Epimedium.
As of note, the USFDA does list all adaptogens as GRAS (generally recognized as safe).
