Glycetracts

Glycetracts are liquid preparations where the solvent is a combination of glycerol and water (instead of ethanol and water).  Glycetracts have some advantages over hydroethanolic extracts - glycerol tastes sweet and can disguise unpleasant tasting herbs; and as they contain no alcohol, glycetracts are preferred for children and individuals who do not wish to take alcohol.

However, glycerol is not as effective as ethanol for extracting many of the active components found in herbs, and are less stable than hydroethanolic extracts so have a shorter shelf life.  For this reason Phytomed produce only a small range of high quality glycetracts
