If you're looking to take advantage of Pine Pollen's natural androgenic hormones and ability to support natural testosterone production, then the Pine Pollen Tincture is your best choice.
What is a Pine Pollen Tincture?
A Pine Pollen Tincture looks like an eyedropper and contains concentrated extracts that are suspended in a solution of alcohol and water to preserve their potency and purity.
To make a Pine Pollen Tincture, pollen cones are soaked in the alcohol and water solution, which dissolves and extracts the key nutrients into the solution.
The cones are then filtered out leaving behind the concentrated liquid form of the Powder with Pine Pollen's potent phyto-androgens (DHEA, Testosterone, androstenedione, and androsterone) suspended throughout.
Why Use The Pine Pollen Tincture instead of the Powder or Capsule Form?
First off, Pine Pollen powder and capsules are both good choices for people who want to take advantage of Pine Pollen's dense nutrition and unique phyto-androgen profile. They are much cheaper too.
However, when consumed traditionally, some (a small amount) of the nutrients and potency of the Pine Pollen is lost through the digestive process and destroyed by the acids in the stomach.
When you use the Pine Pollen Tincture, the phyto-androgens and other nutrients are absorbed directly into the blood stream by-passing the digestive processes. This allows for a much higher concentration of the androgens in the tincture to be used by the body.
How to Use a Pine Pollen Tincture
Because of the higher absorption rate, the Pine Pollen Tincture is typically used by those specifically interested in taking advantage of Pine Pollen's unique ability to increase testosterone and other hormone levels in the body*
This is done by extracting the solution out of the Pine Pollen Tincture and placing several drops under the tongue; then holding it there for up to a minute to allow for it to be absorbed into the body.
The remaining saliva and solution are then swallowed and absorbed through the normal digestive process.
Conclusion: The Pine Pollen Tincture is a great way to use Pine Pollen, but again is usually preferred by athletes; those using it to treat the symptoms of andropause and menopause; and bodybuilders.
Because of the additional processing, the Pine Pollen Tincture is slightly more expensive, but is much more highly concentrated than the capsule or powder form of the food.
