Pure Alcohol used in processing is derived from NON GMO, organic corn. Alcohol is the safest broad-spectrum solvent, carrier, and preservative available for most plants. Additionally, the potency of alcohol tinctures is greater and will retain potency approximately three times as long as capsulized herbs. Further, liquid herbs are highly absorbable because they do not have to be broken down by our digestive tract; rather, they are absorbed into our system immediately. Good Herbs uses no chemicals in the extraction process.
Most companies use harmful solvents (acetone, methanol, denatured alcohol, etc.) to extract properties from herbs. Residues are left from these solvents in the ﬁnal product. This is a far cry from the purity that most people desire and expect from their herbs. These solvents can be especially detrimental to people who are chemically sensitive.
Alcohol: A Dangerous Toxin Foreign to Human Bodies
Quite to the contrary. Every living human body continuously produces ethanol (beverage alcohol) 24/7. It's called endogenous ethanol production. Human life does not exist without the presence of alcohol. Microorganisms in our digestive system constantly convert sugar into carbon dioxide gas and ethanol. The quantity of alcohol produced depends on our diet, but can reach about an ounce of "pure" alcohol per day.
