(Pedersen 1994)
As you will see from this list of just a few common herbs – their content is amazing. I have only listed some of the minerals here and have not included vitamins because their retention is dependant upon your processing method. Apple cider vinegar extracts will concentrate vitamins and minerals, decoctions will contain them but alcohol tinctures will only concentrate the mineral portion – not the vitamins, but will extract the medicinal aspects of most herbs.
