Many people have asked us how we must give maintenance tinctures, extracts, bases and Microdose; let's clarify some doubts:
It is not necessary:
It is not true that decompose by the passage of time, at least 10 or 20 years depending on climatic conditions; my grandfather mentioned that microdose never expired. It really is difficult for some tincture, extract, base or Microdose last us more than 10 years, usually consume before. Alcohol is the agent that allows the decomposition may not start.
However, it is important to emphasize that it is very important to keep them in a cool, dry and away from sunlight, preferably in a dark place.
It is generally thought that small residues mainly in tinctures, extracts, bases and Microdose are indication that this spoiling which is not true; this is because "settles" and solid residues tend to go down; is only necessary to shake the dropper every time I go to use, whether to prepare a Microdose or for supply to a patient.
Be careful with the bases, mainly patent medicines, since if the drug is outdated based not serve us and could have negative effects on the patient. Some indications that the base no longer serves a taffy appearance, color change, or any change in the texture of the base.
As we have mentioned before, if it is very important to label the date of preparation of tinctures, extracts and bases to maintain adequate control of their age.
Therefore, it is not necessary to indicate any expiry date on Microdose.
