ELEVATED PINE POLLEN TINCTURE
Made with Våren Forest Nettle Root, Chen Pi, and Zhi Zi
From our Mountain Harvest Pine Pollen Collection
Also Available in a 4 Ounce Bottle
A propitiatory, professional strength dual extract of Pine Pollen, Nettle Root, Chen Pi, and Zhi Zi.
Pine Pollen is a pro-androgenic and adaptogenic herb, and is known to include bio-available Phytoandrogens, plant-analogs of the male sex hormones:
- Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA);
Elevated Pine Pollen Tincture: The Formula
Pine Pollen and Nettle Root is a match made in heaven. While Pine Pollen can help supplement the body with Phytoandrogens, Nettle Root promotes a favorable testosterone to estrogen ratio and may help elevate levels of free (active) testosterone by decreasing the activity of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG).*
To promote Qi circulation and to invigorate the endocrine system, we add just a touch of Chen Pi (immature tangerine peel) and Zhi Zi (Gardenia fruit) to the formula.* This harmonizes and potentiates the formula. This tincture has been developed by master herbalists.
- Pine Pollen (wild-harvested Pinus massoniana): 75%;
- Nettle Root (ecologically cultivated Urtica dioica): 20%;
- Chen Pi (ecologically cultivated immature Tangerine peel): 2.5%;
- Zhi Zi (ecologically cultivated Gardenia fruit): 2.5%.

True Dual Extract Tinctures
While many refer to all tinctures as dual extracts, because they are extracted in a combination of water and alcohol (ethanol), we offer true dual extracts. Using water, alcohol, and heat, we make a decoction of the menstruum (the solution of herbs, alcohol, and water)—a vital difference that produces a cleaner, more potent tincture. It's a more involved, more expensive extraction process, but we think our customers are worth it. We know our customers are worth it.
What You'll Find Inside
Each bottle contains either 2 or 4 ounces of our Elevated Pine Pollen Tincture. This tincture, like all of our tinctures, has been professionally prepared in a domestic, FDA cGMP facility. All of our tinctures are extracted using pharmaceutical grade alcohol and are bottled in opaque glass bottles to protect the ingredients from damage and degradation by UV rays.
As part of a full line of Pine Pollen products, our Elevated Pine Pollen Tincture is especially cherished by customers looking to gain the Phytoandrogens (androstenedione, androsterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and testosterone) that are present in Pine Pollen. Pine Pollen Tincture is used to increase the levels of male sex hormones and help increase and balance levels of testosterone to estrogen.*
Latin: Pinus massoniana
Pine Pollen is a uniquely potent, natural substance that contains a high concentration of a full spectrum of nutrients, specific anti-aging compounds, bio-available androgen hormones, raw amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, and dense antioxidants, making it the most complete of all "super-foods." The powerful mix of pro-androgenic compounds found in it is unseen anywhere else in the plant world. * All of these compounds work in unison to provide a profound benefit for a healthy and long life.*
Latin: Radix Urtica dioica
Source: Organically cultivated
The second major ingredient in our Elevated Pine pollen Tincture is Nettle Root, the roots of the common Stinging Nettle Plant (Urtica dioica) which is found throughout New England. Nettle Root is called The Male Herbal Ally because it is known to have several important benefits, including supporting prostate health, lowering estradiol (a metabolite of estrogen), and increasing free (biologically active) testosterone. Together, Pine Pollen and Nettle Root account for 95% of the formula.
To Pine Pollen and Nettle Root, we add Chen Pi and Zhi Zi. While present in small amounts, these two herbs have a synergistic effect of unlocking and potentiating the two major herbs in the formula.
Latin: Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae
Chen Pi, which is the peel of immature tangerine peel and is botanically known as Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae, is added to our Elevated Pine Pollen Tincture to help circulate and regulate Qi.
In this formula, Chen Pi helps to synergize and potentiate Pine Pollen and to help refine and circulate Qi. While many traditional formulas within Chinese herbalism use Licorice Root to synergize and potentiate a formula, here Chen Pi works are a valuable substitution without the risk of any phyto-estrogenic properties of Licorice Root.
Latin: Fructus Gardeniae jasminoidis
Zhi Zi is the fruit of the Cape Jasmine Gardenia plant, botanically known as Fructus Gardeniae Jasminoidis. Zhi Zi is largely unknown in Western botanical medicine but is an important herb in the Chinese pharmacopeia and is an herb that is particularly suited for the RAW Forest Foods' family of customers. The primary action of Zhi Zi is to clear heat (inflammation) and calms the Spirit (settles an overactive, anxious mind). Next, Zhi Zi drains Damp-Heat, a Chinese medicine diagnosis common in those experiencing burnout and chronic illness. The secondary actions of Zhi Zi involve the quality of blood and promoting blood circulation, helping to deliver this formula throughout the body.
Our Elevated Pine Pollen Tincture deviates from the nutritional aspect of RAW Pine Pollen and focuses on the phytochemicals present within it, specifically the Phytoandrogens (plant hormone analogs) androstenedione, androsterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and testosterone.
These androgens may help raise levels of free testosterone in the body.
For customers seeking the full range of health benefits from Pine Pollen, while also raising testosterone levels, we recommend a combination of our RAW Pine Pollen with Elevated Pine Pollen Tincture or Royal Pine Pollen Tincture.
This is a professional grade tincture and is intended for therapeutic use—not abuse.
