While getting the tincture straight into your blood stream is best an alternative is to squirt the tincture into hot liquid like tea. Since alcohol evaporates at a lower temperature than water, the alcohol will steam off, leaving behind the nutrients it was carrying.
If you don’t know whether or not you are allergic to pine pollen, the best way to test it is to take 1/2 squirt and see what happens in the next couple of hours. In case you notice any allergic reactions such as itchy eyes, rash, a runny nose, trouble breathing or other common allergic symptoms, stop taking the tincture immediately and seek medical help, if required. Even though some people are allergic to pine pollen powder, they experience no issues with the tincture.
We do not recommend pine pollen tincture for pregnant women or children.
This is a possibility. Additional herbs like nettle root or foods like cruciferous vegetables can help to limit aromatization. Also work to limit excessive body fat, as adipose tissue creates more of the aromatase enzyme.
Yes, optimised hormones are beneficial for muscle growth and fat loss, pine pollen tincture can help in this area through its androgenic effects. Pine Pollen is nature’s anabolic steroid and one of the best supplements a serious bodybuilder can take.
Pine Pollen is most famous, and rightfully so, for its ability and potential as a natural testosterone booster. Serious bodybuilders know that optimal hormone production; especially testosterone, is essential to building muscle and recovery from intense exercise.
Pine Pollen contains natural phyto-androgens that are chemically similar to those created within the human body. These hormones include testosterone, DHEA, androstenedione, and androsterone. These hormones support those of the body, supplying it with more of these essential chemicals.
Unlike anabolic steroids, which can cause atrophy of the pituitary gland and testicles, Pine Pollen is completely safe and has not been shown to cause endocrine system failure. This is because the hormones in Pine Pollen are similar enough to be used by the body, but not identical, so it does not shut down the body’s own production.
Pine Pollen contains over 200+ vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids. In addition to the natural hormonal benefits of the food, Pine Pollen is one of the most dense and nutritious foods you can eat. The nutrients in Pine Pollen are also in their natural forms and ratios making them easily absorbed by the body.
Many bodybuilders take expensive aminos and multivitamins which are synthetic chemicals and/or highly concentrated and isolated. Not only are these supplements expensive, they are also hazardous to the body, as they have the potential to throw off the body’s natural balance of nutrients.
Pine Pollen is a cheap, natural alternative that replaces most of the supplements athletes are used to taking.
Pine Pollen is also an adaptagenic food that helps to fight stress hormones and inflammation in the body. This is huge for bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts who are constantly beating up their bodies with intense workouts.
This constant barrage of stress can hammer the immune system and ultimately cause it to fail if not balanced out with nutrition and rest.
Pine Pollen contains natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds that help to battle free radicals and damage being done to the body’s adrenal glands and muscle tissues.
The most powerful antioxidant contained in Pine Pollen is Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), which is the body’s master antioxidant. Pine Pollen provides a powerful dose of this master stress reducer, helping to lower total inflammation within the body.
This is one of the primary reasons researchers believe Pine Pollen can have an anti-aging effect on the body.
See the above question, but this comes out to 32 grams of concentrated pine pollen per bottle, or the equivalent of 625 grams standard strength pine pollen per bottle.
Our pine pollen tincture is mode from 20:1 concentrate of pine pollen. We then combine this in a 1:2 extract, meaning that 1 gram of powder is used for each 2mL of alcohol. Due to our use of the 20:1 concentrated pine pollen, our tincture has an effective ration of 10:1, meaning 10 grams of powder for each 1ml of alcohol.
Alcohol is a powerful solvent which is why its used. It pulls out fat soluble components. In this case it helps make the androgens more readily absorbable. Water alone will pull out some nutrition. Vinegar and vegetable glycerin are other options, although not as effective as alcohol.
All of our pine pollen is wild sourced and organic.
Yes, some people take 6 to 10 dropperfuls per day. This is a big dose, so please be careful, and if you do so make sure you cycle its use.
Yes, but avoid putting it in boiling water.
It doesn’t really matter, you can take it with or without food.
When you’re dealing with hormones it is almost always a good idea to change things up so cycling off and on will be helpful. Or just taking some at random times. Hormone supplementation should be more random than regular. Also remember that pine pollen, even in tinctured form, is natural and contains co-factors or the biological package that helps your body use it properly, unlike isolated forms of direct testosterone.
Some people prefer to take it before a workout or in the morning. Ideally, you would want to take 2-3 doses throughout the day instead of one big dose.
Recommendation is to start with a small amount (like a half or full dropper) and increase over time to find what works for you. As with pine pollen powder this is best to spread throughout the day rather than take all at once.
The easiest way is to squirt it straight into your mouth, under your tongue; hold it under your tongue for about 30 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds, then swallow. This allows for best absorption but you can also add it to water, tea, juice and smoothies.
