    Is this ok? The only alcohol free one I(that I could find, anyway) by Natures Answer has been discontinued and an organic alcohol one, also by Natures Answer seems to be the closest thing i can get http://www.vitamingrocer.co.uk/Yucca-Root-p/10615.htm Another problem is that the herb doesnt say its from the root.

    I try to avoid everything with alcohol in it, but I accidentally bought the wrong iodine, which has alcohol in it, and I’ve been using it. My justification, however, is that the dosage is just a couple of drops a day. I wouldn’t use a tincture that required much more that than a day with alcohol in it (like a dropperful or whatever)

    Hi Alex, I know to avoid alcohol but I can’t find yucca root extract (or even just yucca extract) without it in. I posted another topic about finding it without alcohol to go with licorice extract for my leaky gut. I don’t want to have anything with alcohol in it, no matter how small and this product was a very long shot.

    Is there something else you can take that does what yucca does? I’m not really that familiar with its benefits to be able to recommend something.

    Alcohol does not feed candida from my research and the only thing you should worry about is getting drunk (which damages your liver and immune system). I have taken alcohol infused products throughout my treatment and it has never negatively effected me.

    What are you taking yucca root extract for?

    Thats interesting to know, thank you. I’m sure I read a post very early on saying that the liquid extracts should be alcohol free. Perhaps then I’ll try this organic alcohol one. I’m taking it for my leaky gut (see here).

    I know you suggested drinking throat coat tea on that topic, Raster but I really resent paying £13 / $19 for 16 tea bags. I may buy them in the future though.

    Wow thats a lot of money for my tea! Its like $5 US for me! Maybe we can send them to you somehow (pay us via paypal or something).

    As far as alcohol is concerned, Able has a strong opinion about it but I have the opposite opinion. I’ve been taking alcohol infused homeopathics, antifungals, etc. for well over a year and it hasn’t set me back at all. Some people may have a reaction to it but usually you are only using a few drops of it at a time. Also if its herbal or antifungal, you should get a reaction (aka die-off).
