Devil's Claw Root tincture : Probably the best known of all the herbs used in connection with mobility, but for a more all round supplement consider one of our mobility ranges for horses such as Releaf Gold (great short term), longer term our MultiFlex range or for dogs Canine Mobility or Canine Senior Dog range or Canine Releaf Gold.
See "How do I use it" for feeding guidelines.
With regard to our tincture preparation, we use a traditional method : the plant material (herb, flower, root) is macerated (steeped) in ethyl alcohol (from fermented sugar beet) and water over several weeks : the ratio of water to alcohol varies depending on whether the plant's constituents/active ingredients are water soluble or alcohol soluble.
At the end of this maceration, the plant material is pressed and the liquid containing all the vital active constituents is poured off.
Most of our tinctures are 1 : 3 : that is 1 part of the plant material to 3 parts liquid.
The % denotes the percentage of alcohol to water in the liquid part of the tincture.
