Weight Loss Support Herbal Tincture
This weight loss support herbal tincture is made from high quality herbs and ingredients — some of which may have grown in my garden! Many people have a difficult time losing weight no matter what they try. That is so frustrating! These ingredients I have chosen help in individual ways, and I hope they work for you, too! PLEASE NOTE THIS FORMULA CONTAINS MUSHROOMS (Cordyceps). If you want me to custom make a formula without cordyceps (due to an allergy) please contact me via the contact us form on the website.
Garcinia Cambogia: Studies of garcinia cambogia have shown that it significantly lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and increases beneficial HDL cholesterole and urinary fat metabolites (markers of fat oxidation). It lowers leptin, therefore decreasing appetite and it promotes a release of serotonin in the brain which supports healthy weight control. Garcinia cambogia also improves melatonin metabolism and increases energy stores in the liver and other tissues, thereby improving energy and reducing appetite. It reduces insulin resistance. Great for weight loss support.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon has been shown to reduce some of the bad effects of eating high-fat foods. This can help in an overall weight loss plan. Its effect on blood glucose levels can also help your body ultimately lose weight. Scientists report that cinnamon improves insulin sensitivity and reduces the accumulation of white fat in adipose tissue, the kind that “pads” your body.
Ginger: A spicy, warming, aromatic spice famous for relieving nausea & indigestion, warming the body, and promoting appetite. In this way ginger is a potential remedy for motion sickness, flatulence, and chemotherapy-induced nausea. As an anti-inflammatory circulatory tonic, ginger may provide relief from rheumatoid arthritis, joint or muscle pain, & bad circulation or cramps – taken internally or applied as a poultice. As a diaphoretic, ginger can bring on a good sweat to help progress a fever, with its antimicrobial powers helping to fight off an invading cold or flu.The relaxing effect of ginger on the abdominal area can also relieve cold menstrual cramps and promote menstruation.
Cordyceps: Cordycep Sinensis has been known to boost oxygen flow to muscles (especially after exercise), as well as increase energy and prevent fatigue. Cordyceps also may keep blood sugar in check by mimicking the actions of insulin. It also may help fight inflammation as well as have benefits to your heart.
Ginseng: Ginseng may help stimulate physical and mental activity in people who feel weak and tired. One study revealed that ginseng showed good results in helping cancer patients with fatigue. Also can boost energy, lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, reduce stress, promote relaxation, treat diabetes, and manage sexual dysfunction in men.
Fenugreek: Based on the available evidence, fenugreek has benefits for lowering blood sugar levels, boosting testosterone, and increasing milk production in breastfeeding mothers. Fenugreek may also reduce cholesterol levels, lower inflammation, and help with appetite control.
Cayenne: One of the purest of all known stimulants and the most useful of the stimulating diaphoretics. Its potent qualities make it of wide applicability in most fevers (will increase body temperature), infections and general body cleansing. As a cardiac tonic will regulate blood flow, strengthen the heart, arteries, capillaries and will aid in poor peripheral circulation causing cold hands and feet. As a carminative is used in flatulence, dyspepsia and colic, and as a circulatory stimulant will increase blood supply to the digestive organs, hence enhancing their activities (secretions and regular contractions). Topically it is used as a rubefacient to increase circulation and aid in problems such as rheumatic pains. Its counter-irritant effect causes vasodilation (and heat) in whichever tissue with which it comes into contact.
Herbal tinctures as medicine
Why are tinctures a preferred method of taking herbs? Because tinctures are potent! You don’t waste your money on pills that have been in the manufacturing process for months / years and lose potency! With an alcohol base, the tinctures pull out all the medicinal benefits of the plant, and preserve them naturally for you! They don’t lose potency over time.
With that being said, they are in a non-gmo vodka base. Which is fine for most people. But some people prefer to avoid alcohol in all forms. (even by avoiding real vanilla extract) and we support that choice. These tinctures aren’t for those people. Because of the potential for bacteria to reside in glycerine tinctures, we have decided to only offer vodka based tinctures. These herbs are edible and considered safe for most people. Some people may be allergic to certain herbs and should not use them. It is always best to consult your doctor before using any herbal product if you are taking prescription medications or have a health condition.
