This tincture helps to eliminate excess fluids, swelling and edema, while supplying the body with abundant vitamins and minerals. This is a great herbal product for pregnant women (or anyone) who is experiencing water retention.
Ingredients: Organic Nettle Leaf and Dandelion Leaf. The regular tincture is extracted in brandy (made from grapes) and the non-alcohol version is extracted in organic vegetable glycerine (made with non-GMO soy) and distilled water. All Herb Lore tinctures are gluten-free.
Dandelion Leaf is a nutritive herb that works as a gentle diuretic. Unlike other synthetic diuretics which can deplete the body of Potassium, Dandelion Leaf is loaded with readily-absorbable levels of Postassium to help supplement the system. (Dandelion Leaf and Dandelion Root work very differently - the leaf works as described here, whereas the root works more as a liver cleansing herb.) The Nettle is also highly nutritive and helps support the kidneys in aiding the elimination of the excess water. Nettle is one of the best herbs for alleviating allergies and hay fever. Both herbs are extremely high in vitamins and minerals and are very nutritious!
