At Canadian Pine Pollen Co., we take several measures that ensure our tinctures are of the utmost quality. We use 100% raw, wild, living pine pollen when making these tinctures. Most companies use the entire buds (96% of their weight is husk, and only 4% pollen), making the herb to extract ratio substantially weaker compared to our pure pine pollen tinctures. We never import pine pollen from China, and you can rest easy knowing we sell only wild-harvested pine pollen from the forests of British Columbia. Our pollen is always fresh - never heat-treated or sterilized. We use a proprietary dual extraction process that efficiently concentrates the desirable compounds: androgens, flavonoids, and antioxidants. Canadian Pine Pollen Tinctures are simply the best around.
