Mahonia aquifolium

Today we are making tincture of Mahonia aquifolium or Oregon Grape Root.

Constituents of Mahonia aquifolium include berberine, columbamine, hydrastine, jatrorrhizine, oxyacanthine, tannins.

To ensure a high quality extract Mahonia aquifolium root has to be ground very finely and then (with the appropriate alcohol concentration) undergo slow percolation.
