many years, Alpha Omega Labs has used its
own herbal extraction methods to produce
its own tincture formulations (i.e. the best known
being the Cansema Tonic and our CanSupport line).
Given the popularity of those products worldwide,

we also introduce Phyto Rx this month, which
utilizes grain alcohol in the creation of those
tinctures, as well. Alcohol extraction allows
many of the components of a herbal product,

that are weakened or destroyed over time or
are subject to heat lability, to be preserved.
That is why it is used by herbalists so extensively.

that are quite stable and do not need to be made
into tinctures to bring out their optimal medicinal
benefit. One herb we are known for using extensively,
for instance, is bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis).
Although some herbalists put bloodroot into tincture
form, it is really quite unnecessary. This is
because none of the 60 powerful alkaloids,
chiefly "sangarene," that are known to exert
medicinal effects, have stability issues.
in the interests of tradition and personal choice,
we make olive leaf available in tincture form
