WHY CHOOSE NATURAL HERBAL PLANTS?
For thousands of years, the usages of medicinal plants were used to treat various health problems or at least to prevent them. For several centuries, drugs and synthetic chemicals have gained popularity while the reputation of the herbal medicine has declined. However, the role of herbal medicine should not be overlooked: it is through the use of herbs and natural extracts that was the birthplace of modern pharmacology. Thousands of chemicals found in modern pharmacopoeia are derived from plants. After years of trial and error, use and experimentation, we now know more than ever on the chemical properties and curative plants. Why not take advantage of that knowledge to improve your wellbeing?
With genetic manipulation, pesticides, heavy metals, additives and other products harmful to health, it becomes increasingly difficult to find healthy and nutritious food, free from chemicals, processed, synthetic and possibly harmful. Fruits and vegetables we eat today are not like fruits and vegetables our ancestors ate! It therefore becomes imperative to overcome these shortcomings. Natural products are a good supplement to your diet since they help offset any deficiencies or insufficiencies. The herbal extracts and tinctures may help drain or detoxification (toxins) the body with emphasis on the excretory organs: the liver, intestines, kidneys, blood and lungs. In addition, extracts of plants greatly help to balance the acid-base system. In addition, our team of certified naturopaths and herbalists has extensive knowledge of natural health products and provides the best advises on our Medinat products, suited for each condition and tailored to each case.
Purpose of Alcohol in Formulae
Why Use Alcohol?
Consumers are often concerned when they see that alcohol is used in the preparation of herbal tinctures and extracts. Medinat uses pure grain alcohol in the preparation of a number of our herbal products because it is proven to be the best solvent, carrier and preservative for the active ingredients in herbal products.
Safe for Consumption:
The quantities of alcohol used in proper dosages of our products are approved and well monitored as safe for consumption. Those concerned about consuming alcohol can reduce the alcohol in the preparations by adding hot water to the tincture and allowing the alcohol to evaporate for 5-10 minutes.
Keeping it in Perspective:
The amount of alcohol in a given dose of herbal tinctures with alcohol bases could be compared to that in a single ripe banana

Ease of Administering
When you swallow a capsule or tablet, your body has to digest it first and as most people have digestive problems, the product is not digested properly and does not provide the expected benefits.
Extracts can be put on or under the tongue; they also leave the stomach linings to travel directly to the blood in a matter of seconds. Extracts may also be used as external applications directly on the skin in order to reach the affliction inside the body.
Many people struggle to swallow tablets and capsules. Our liquid-based herbal products are dispensed by drops directly in the mouth. They can also be mixed with warm or cold water or natural, unsweetened juice for those who are concerned about taste.
Medinat also distributes other natural health products of professional, high quality grade such as vitamins and supplements.
