At the time of the writing of this article we have three tinctures available at Lost Empire Herbs.
The good news is we have a few other tinctures (including tincture formulas) in various stages of production, and have plans to continue expanding the line here.
In this video and post I wanted to take a moment to talk about combining the different tinctures, as this is a question we often get asked about.
The short answer is that yes, you can take all three of these tinctures, and any others all at once.
In fact, this triplet makes a good combination if you’re interested in hormone health. The pine pollen is going to provide that androgenic action. The nettle root is going to support that androgenic action. Then the ashwagandha is going to help with cortisol (among much else) to hit the hormones from a different angle entirely.
When taking multiple tinctures, you may want to change the dosage. For example, instead of a full dropper of each, you can do a half dropper full.
In essence, you’re making your own formula, mixing it within your mouth. As always with tinctures, it is best to hold them under your tongue for around a half minute to allow for absorption.
Another option would be to pour the tincture liquid into another bottle in order to actually formulate them together.
This can be combined with other tinctures, ones you make yourself, like the Ginseng Whiskey I discuss in this tincture making article, or one’s from other companies.
Tinctures are great because they’re easy to take and travel with, so you can take these three, or others along with you on the road. (Even though they’re liquid, I never have issues getting through TSA in the airport with them, and I generally don’t even put them in plastic bags!)
