Single Herb Glycerites are herbal medicines that are made by extracting herbs in vegetable glycerine and clean mountain water. Herbal Glycerites are great for kids, seniors, alcohol-sensitive adults, or anyone. Glycerites are taken internally--the sweet taste making it a pleasure to put right in your mouth. Even though it tastes sweet, glycerites have a zero glycemic index, meaning it does not raise your blood sugar. Glycerites are half as strong as tinctures, so the recommended dose is twice that of tinctures. Glycerites should be used within a year since glycerine is not a good preservative.
