This is a problem that can not be fully solved in the direct extraction method. The problem of tincture soaked in elongated crutches would in theory be solved by chopping or using Soxhlet's extractor . However, it is still a waste of the cake because it also contains some insoluble proteoglycans , effective against flu and cold , which are released only after digestion of ginseng .
Crops can be fully utilized by adding to meals (eg soups). But if they do not like you, you will not have to waste that big waste when you throw them away. The vast majority of the active substances (mainly panaxosides ) pass into the tincture. The Recipe has been tested - half-liter bottles of extract (that is, strawberry brandy), which we have prepared from 60% of drinking alcohol (diluted to 30% alk) have excellent response among our friends with a significant over-demand.
The official benefit of tinctures is that you do not have to wait until morning or during the day before ginseng tea is cooked. As Prof. MUDr. Jan Slezak , with whom I met recently during his visit to Taiwan, is not harming a small amount of alcohol, but on the contrary, he benefits from his anxiolytic effect and the expansion of the blood vessels. However, ginseng tincture will find use even when the social stream hits us in areas of alcohol consumption in quantities larger than small (which I do not want to approve of). Panaxosides, with their anti-inflammatory and soothing effect on microglia, suppress hangover and reduce the number of neurons that die as a result of opiates. We can achieve the best effect by ingesting ginseng before drinking, or by mixing ginseng tincture directly into the spirits consumed. I myself have once tried to travel on a Trans-Siberian highway full of citizens of the former USSR, offering water, spitting and warning against fake card players. Ginseng has a neuroprotective effect on other intoxications with irritant effects on the brain (drugs, volatile substances ...).
... is it possible to use the tincture for min. 40% alcohol, such as a guide, or perhaps a plum, which has about 52% or pure alcohol?
No, pure alcohol is not necessary, the water-alcohol mixture in this particular case is perhaps even better than pure alcohol. B.
Hello, when you make tinctures, do you write to make the ginseng lengthen for at least 14 days, which is the maximum leaching time, or can I lengthen until I have consumed the tincture? I have ginseng loaded in 2.5 dcl. Alcohol thanks for reply, Alda
Hello, Aldo, I'm glad you live, I'm getting to your mail now after the semester. The short answer is that leaving tinctures in tincture will not spoil anything in principle - all the roots of ginseng loaded in a bottle of ginseng vodka are also sold. So there is no functional problem with leaving the ginseng in the lye bottle until it is finished. But slices can be shaken in the bottle by the time they shake, which may make someone feel unsteady.
