The following is our own opinion. We feel that our herbal extracts best represent the potency of the whole plant because the herbs we use are harvested at their maximum potency levels. The low or no-alcohol extracts are tinctures that have been evaporated and then reconstituted with only enough alcohol to preserve or with other preservatives. We feel that valuable plant constituents may be lost in these processes. Glycerine extracts are available, but glycerine is not a very good extractor or preserver of many plant constituents. At best, larger doses are needed to obtain the same results.
