Herbal Extracts are dietary supplements, or a combination of dietary supplements, extracted in liquids such as distilled water and neutral grain spirits. Neutral grain spirits are an alcohol distilled from grain. The fact is, a combination of distilled water and a neutral grain alcohol is the best fluid known for dissolving all parts of an herb. A water and neutral alcohol extract provide a dietary supplement in a “predigested” form. It should be noted that when you get the full strength of an herbal supplement, a little goes a long way.
