Our best seller White Pine Elixir is a highly concentrated glycerite made with ORGANIC alcohol, vegetable glycerin, and wildcrafted pine needles from the Pinus Strobus specie commonly named Eastern White Pine. It has a strong and sweet piney flavor.
White pine needle medicine has been traditionally used to support the respiratory system promoting bronchial wellness and boosting the body's natural defense.
The directions on how to use this product are on the bottle’s label . Take 30 to 60 drops (1 to 2 droppersful) twice a day. You can place drops directly under your tongue for 1 min before swallowing or add them to a cup of tea or water. One dropperful is approximately 1 mL, this equals to one squeeze of the dropper's rubber bulb. Notice that the dropper may not be completely full and this is normal.
This extract contains Shikimic Acid (Suramin) along with a full spectrum of white pine needle constituents; Vitamin C, pigments, and various terpenes in higher concentrations than in traditional tinctures. This is because we apply a particular combination of thermal, mechanical, and ultrasonic treatment in addition to the traditional maceration method to achieve a higher concentration.
We harvest our pine needle material from Massachusetts' forests away from roads to avoid pollution. Since pine needles dry out quickly, we process them the same day.
The difference between this white pine extract and our elixir version is that this extract is more concentrated. However, both are more concentrated than the traditional extracts and have a strong, natural piney flavor but the elixir is glycerite sweet and preserves much better the delicious piney flavor of the needles. Glycerin helps with extraction, preservation and taste. It tastes sweet but it is not metabolized as sugar in the body. For that reason, it’s sometimes used as a sweetener in foods marketed to diabetics and low-carb dieters.
You may get a clear glass or an amber glass bottle depending on stock availability.
