Winter Wellness: Potter's Herbals Energise Tonic & Echinacea Tincture review

Thursday 2 December 2021


Fend off cold and flu symptoms and say goodbye to low energy levels with these two natural tonics and tinctures from Potter's Herbals this Winter.

Potter's Herbals are one of those old-school natural medicine companies that you see in virtually every single health food store. Established back in 1812 by Henry Potter in London, Potter's Herbals have developed into a tried and tested brand of useful natural tonics, supplements and tinctures to help with a wide range of common ailments.

With over 200 years of experience, it's admirable to see many of the original recipes still used in their bestselling products for the modern-day world. It was also high time that I tried some out for myself! 

Here are two of their popular remedies that I've been recently using.

Potter's Herbals Energise Tonic* (250ml, £18.99, link)

The key ingredient in Potter's Herbals Energise Tonic is called G115 which is a standardised extract of Panax Ginseng; a natural ingredient that has been used for centuries in Asian herbal medicine. It's an ingredient that has been widely researched for decades and is scientifically proven to support a healthy metabolism, fight tiredness and fatigue, boost physical performance and support the immune system. I've also found it useful for improving concentration whilst studying and keeping the yawns at bay when the usual tiredness kicks in around 3pm.

How to use: each 15ml daily dose of Energise Tonic contains 140mg of Panax Ginseng and should be taken first thing in the morning with breakfast. It has a pleasant cherry flavour, and as the tonic contains sweeteners, it's important not to exceed the recommended dose as excessive consumption can cause laxative effects.

Potter's Herbals Echinacea Tincture* (100ml, £12.99, link)

Another widely trusted and researched natural ingredient that's hugely popular nowadays is Echinacea. I'm sure you've seen it advertised in every health food shop window since October and I've noticed large displays and posters pop up in most pharmacies too. The success of Echinacea is its natural ability to help relieve some of the symptoms of the common cold and flu based upon traditional usage. Extracted from the root of the Echinacea Purpurea, this tincture is a long-standing natural cold and flu remedy which is used around the world during Winter.

I think it's important to mention that not all Echinacea products are the same and they vary in strength and quality from brand to brand so always check the certification mark and dosage amounts. In my experience, this is a product where it's important to pay a bit more to get the highest quality of organic Echinacea, and I've found Potter's Herbals Echinacea Tincture to be particularly more potent and effective compared to cheaper brands or tablets; each 2.5ml liquid contains 1.7ml of tincture derived from fresh organic Echinacea root.

How to use: Echinacea is best used at the very first sign/symptom of cold or flu. Take half a teaspoon (2.5ml) three times a day, spacing the doses out as much as possible. Due to its potency, it's not recommended for children under the age of 12 years and it should only be used for no more than 10 days at a time. 

Do you take any natural tinctures or tonics?
