    I recently got prescribed Siberian Ginseng as a tincture, but it contained 42% ethanol/alcohol. So I didn’t try it.

    I tried finding alcohol free versions, not much luck but I bought a cheap one that uses glycerin and claims it contains nothing else other than Sib Ginseng and water.

    I know glycerin has been a concern in the past, and Raster you have said not to worry too much about it in supplements (capsules etc..), but this one tastes very sweet and I don’t want it to aggravate my symptoms.

    Any thoughts? I am currently taking tablet forms of the Ginseng, hopefully it will give me some of the same benefit.

    It shouldn’t benefit the yeast as far as I’m concerned, very small amount of alcohol (like a spoonful or whatever per serving). The alcohol preserves whatever is in the tincture.
