Quassia Products

Quassia is the most biiter tasting known plant in the world. This bitterness comes from the phytochemical quassin. When quassin is compared to quinine, another bitter phytochemical, it can be measured as being roughly 50 times more bitter. In small quantities this quality has made Quassia a favourite ingredient in bitters. Quassia is native to the Caribbean and South America and counted as a shurb or small tree. It has beautiful large red blooms and distinctive glossy leaves. Find all our Quassia products below.

Taking herbs in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Cinnamon Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken when required.

Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

After careful harvesting, selection and cleaning the Quassia brak chips used to make this tincture undergo a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

Picrasma excelsa, Alcohol, Water.

Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Turkey tail mushroom
I have breast cancer and in some bones . Over a year ago I read a report about ttm from some guy in America so I started taking ttm As i opted out of surgery and am on tabs my consultant said tabs would not eradicate cancer but could prolong life a bit longer . Well iam starting my 4th year but the cancer is growing minimally so if I keep taking ttm it will keep it at bay or more minimally .thank you jtx
