While Chinese herbal medicine began with decoctions, powders, and pills, tinctures and extracts have also played an important part in the growth and development of herbal medicine. Liquid formulas like decoctions and tinctures are often referred to as “tang.”
Tinctures are made by soaking herbal formulas in an alcohol solution to extract and concentrate their healing compounds. These tinctures first became part of ancient Chinese medicine as a way to heal wounds and injuries topically. Later on, the same method way used for internal formulas and tinctures joined the ranks of herbal decoctions and pills.
Today, tinctures and liquid extracts are becoming more popular. These formulas can be taken easily under the tongue or in a glass of water, making it the perfect method for those who have trouble swallowing pills, children, and even pets.
Best Chinese Medicine strives to offer only the best Chinese medicine and herbal products available. When it comes to liquid extracts, Oregon-based Golden Lotus Botanicals has hit the mark. They use the highest possible quality of herbs and processing standards to create their tinctures and extracts.
The team also works closely with organic and ethical farms to help support these communities and local growers. A benefit of working with traditional farmers is that they steer clear from the use of pesticides, fungicides, sulfites, and fumigation that have become popular in more modern, output-focused agricultural practices.
The extracts produced at Golden Lotus Botanicals are an 8:1 concentration, allowing our daily dose of health-supporting herbs to be minimal, simple, and quick!
Liquid extracts can be made from nearly any traditional Chinese herbal formula, but some formulas are better suited to be used as tinctures. Here are a few of our favorite tinctures at Best Chinese Medicine:
Xiao Yao Tang: Xiao Yao Tang is the liquid extract version of the popular Xiao Yao San. This formula is commonly used to help combat stress, irritability, fatigue, PMS, and other common issues associated with chronic stress. Add a dose of this liquid extract to a glass of water daily to prevent stress and ease tension.
Si Jun Zi Tang: Si Jun Zi Tang is a gentle formula that gradually builds our qi and energy. As a tincture, it can be easily incorporated into daily life to help combat chronic fatigue, sleep disturbance, and mild digestive problems. Add to a glass of water or ginger tea to improve digestive function even further.
Gan Mao Ling Tang: Gan Mao Ling Tang is a famous formula known to stop the common cold in its tracks. This formula works wonderfully as a tincture, either taken directly or steeped into a cup of warm lemon ginger tea. Since children are often susceptible to colds, this is an easy way to help your child prevent colds while saving them from the trouble of swallowing pills.
