Losing weight is grueling. Luckily there’s plenty of research into weight loss, and employing a broad range of tactics is often the key to success, and this includes supporting your weight loss plan with herbs and spices.

There are a variety of plants and herbs that assist with weight loss due to their high fiber content, however, there are also some plants and herbs that can actually elevate your metabolism. This can lead to an increase in energy levels and potentially boost fat burning.

Plants associated with weight loss are often warming spices that also aid digestion. Some support the liver and kidneys to remove toxins, while others alter cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

    Where can I find testimony to the efficacy of such?

    • Liz Posted February 5, 2021 5:49 pm

      Google the ingredient plus weight loss. i.e. “turmeric and weight loss.”

  • Codi Posted February 5, 2021 2:10 pm

    I am Deathly Allergic to Alcohol. How long does this procedure take to use water (or some kind of Oil? What kind of Oil?)

    • William Dannie Lane Posted February 5, 2021 2:19 pm

      As most of the Active Components of the herbs mentioned in this formula are water soluble and not fat soluble and all your might not work well. But you could combine all the ingredients and make a strong tea. Most likely combining all the ingredients and using about a tablespoon of the herb to a cup of water athletic seat for about 5 minutes and drink that throughout the day. You could also make a glyceride using the warm method with these herbs I’m just double the dose you take.

      • Kay Posted February 5, 2021 2:40 pm

        If you can’t use alcohol for a tincture, use apple cider vinegar

      • Sandy Posted February 5, 2021 6:25 pm

        If you are making a glyceride is it a 1:1 substitution for the alcohol?

    • Liberty Posted February 5, 2021 2:22 pm

      Food grade glycerin is also used for tincture recipes for those who can’t do alcohol.

    • cathy Posted February 9, 2021 3:26 am

      Try apple cider vinegar instead of vodka. It might work.

    • Jenny Posted February 17, 2021 3:11 pm

      You could try extracting in vinegar or glycerin instead if you are allergic to alcohol.

  • bryan Posted February 5, 2021 2:58 pm

    How would you substitute chopped alfalfa with powered alfalfa?

  • Leslie A Bussey Posted February 5, 2021 3:56 pm

    Can you literally use organic seeds from the spice section in the store for the cumin, fennel, etc ? Can you suggest best place to buy gingseng root and alfalafa ? Thanks!

  • Connie Rice Posted February 5, 2021 4:43 pm

    How often do you take it?

  • Frank G Kecskes Posted February 5, 2021 4:50 pm

    Before ingesting the dose of the tincture, will it affect the potency if you let the alcohol first evaporate at room temperature right before taking that dose?

  • M Morehead Posted February 5, 2021 4:56 pm

    How do you define the difference between “herb” and “spice”?

    • The Lost Herbs Posted February 8, 2021 3:18 pm

      Hi M,

      Herbs are leaves, and although most come from herbaceous plants (plants that lack woody stems), a few do come from woody plants, such as bay leaf. Basil, rosemary, and parsley are often found in a kitchen’s spice rack but actually qualify as herbs because they are aromatic leaves.

      Spices tend to be stronger in flavor than herbs because they are made from crushed portions of plants that are especially rich in essential oils. Herbs can be found either fresh or dried, chopped or whole.

      God bless!

  • Di Posted February 5, 2021 7:37 pm

    How much and often is this supposed to be digested?

  • Kathy Posted February 5, 2021 8:03 pm

    Can you be more specific on the dosage? A few drops – how many is a few, and before meals? or once a day?

    • The Lost Herbs Posted February 11, 2021 7:21 am

      Hi Kathy,

      The dosage is about a teaspoon (or 30 drops) of tincture a day, but how you take it depends on your taste and method of ingestion. It’s easy to add a teaspoon of the tincture to a salad, stir-fry, or even a chai tea, but it can be a bit more challenging to let a teaspoon of tincture sit under your tongue, so it’s easier to take 8 – 10 drops of tincture at least 3 – 4 times a day instead of when using this method.

      God Bless!

    Who sells ginseng root and alfalfa?

    • EZ Hop Posted February 7, 2021 5:00 pm

      Mountain rose herbs likely has all the ingredients you will need.

  • Marj Posted February 5, 2021 11:19 pm

    Where can one find ginsing root and alfalfa? Is the alfalfa dried or as sprouts? Are there any substitutions for them? Will the tincture still work if I cannot source the ginsing and alfalfa? Thank you!!

  • Leslie A Bussey Posted February 6, 2021 2:30 pm

    Why must this tincture be stored in the fridge- shouldn’t it be shelf stable?
    Can you use half alcohol and half something else so it is not just alcohol being used- to enhance the taste? If so, what would be best to use and would it be shelf stable then? Thanks

    • William Dannie Lane Posted February 6, 2021 3:11 pm

      I have no idea why this would need to be refrigerated. As for the alcohol content is long as the alcohol content is about 30% or higher it will be shelf-stable for years. And this recipe she only uses 40 proof vodka which is only 20% alcohol which would not be self stable for an extended. Of time. People need to realize that you take the proof of your alcohol you’re using divide that in half and that’s the amount of alcohol there actually is. So again with the 40 proof alcohol she says to use which by the way is not a high-proof alcohol you’re only getting in the end product 20% alcohol by volume.

      • Ellen Posted February 6, 2021 9:16 pm

        40 % alcohol by volume is called 80 Proof.

      • Ray Posted February 7, 2021 2:52 pm

        The post actually says 40% or 80 proof.

      • William Dannie Lane Posted February 8, 2021 4:06 pm

        This is what the post actually says. 200 – 250 ml of high proof alcohol (I’m using 40% vodka). The higher the percentage, the longer the shelf life will be. Saying 40% vodka is not very clear at all and actually would not be allowed by most professionally trained herbalist it really needs to State 40% alcohol containing vodka or 80 proof vodka. Stating 40% vodka really means nothing.

    • Eileen P Posted February 8, 2021 4:34 pm

      It needs to be kept in a “cool dark place” like a refrigerator. It does not say in the refrigerator.

      • William Dannie Lane Posted February 8, 2021 8:57 pm

        I literally states, “Label your tincture and store it in the fridge.”

  • Tatiana Zoe’ Tahminjian Posted February 8, 2021 6:25 am

    • The Lost Herbs Posted February 8, 2021 3:19 pm

      Hi Tatiana,

      Thank you so much for your kind words.

      God bless!

  • Debra Denny Posted February 14, 2021 1:47 am

    In my other tinctures I’ve used half alcohol and half glycerin. Is this acceptable? What, on the average have people lost weight and how long does it take? I know everyone is different.

  • Lanette weese Posted March 13, 2021 9:12 pm

    How much pineapple juice do I drink a day for weight loss? And is an all organic pineapple do the same?

  • Marj Posted March 18, 2021 8:34 pm

    I am unable to source fresh ginsing root. Can I use ginsing powder instead? And if so, how much to be equivalent to 2 tablespoons fo sliced ginsing root? Thank You!!
