Many customers ask if they need to avoid alcohol-based tinctures during pregnancy or while nursing. The answer is no; tinctures contain a very small amount of alcohol, similar to that found in a ripe banana, and are safe to consume while pregnant or nursing (if the herbs themselves are approved for that use). Some people choose alcohol-free alternatives for personal, dietary, or religious reasons. Always give babies and children the non-alcohol version if possible. See Herb Lore's website for more information.
An immune system enhancing herb which works well for individuals who are weakened, who suffer from frequent infectious illnesses (such as children starting their first year of school or childcare), or who have poor digestion or nutritional status. It helps strengthen the immune system, helping keep people healthy and from becoming sick in the first place. This herb is most beneficial when used each and every day, on a long-term basis (like you would with a multi-vitamin), as it is a nutritive herb which takes some time for best results to be seen.
Note: this herb should not be used in the presence of a fever as it could worsen it. If one does become ill, a suggestion is to use Echinacea and Cold & Flu Tincture to help the illness pass more quickly, and then once recovered, resume use of the Astragalus to continue the immune strengthening process. Users tend to find that they (or their children) become sick less and less until they find that they're not getting sick much at all anymore.
Organic Astragalus Root. The regular tincture is extracted in organic grape alcohol and the non-alcohol version is extracted in organic vegetable glycerine and distilled water. All Herb Lore tinctures are gluten-free and GMO-free.
