Of the three main extraction methods used to produce herbal remedies, decoctions are simply the best. Macerations use solvents which may leave harmful residues in the end product, tinctures contain alcohol which is a systemic poison. Decoctions extract mineral salts and bitter principles through simmering herbs in our own distilled water for a prolonged period. The entire process takes 15 hours, is labour intensive so not conducive to mass production which is why herbal decoctions are uncommon on line. They contain far higher levels of active ingredients, no alcohol and can be made from hard plant parts unlike infusions. Our decoctions are made in small batches from organic ingredients by our fully qualified herbalist. They are also a superior form of supplementation than tablets or capsules, as most have artificially made ingredients, contain filers, flowing agents, excipients binding agents and preservatives. Also they often contain only one active ingredient neglecting the fact that molecules work synergistically in the body. Our qualified Herbalist uses only our own zero ppm quad filtered distilled water, all equipment used is stainless steel and our decoctions are bottled into steam sterilised UV resistant pharmaceutical grade glass bottles, which obviates the need to use preservatives of any kind. Be very careful not to touch the top of the bottle or the inside of the lid against anything or decant it into any container or jug that has not been steam sterilised unless the decoction is to be consumed immediately.
The green pinecone shaped flowers of the Hop plant, known as hops, have been cultivated by humans since the 7th century. Hops rose to prominence around the 10th century as brewers began to take advantage of their antimicrobial and flavouring properties in the production of beer. However, Hops have a long history of use outside of breweries, namely in traditional medicine. Hops are not only valued by herbalists, they have also been approved as a herbal medicine, effective for several disorders, by the German Scientific Committee. The active compounds within hops thought to be responsible for their sedative properties are β-bitter acids, the mircenolo and xanthohumol.
