Think of a tincture as an incredibly concentrated tea—but better.
While water infusions (ie, teas) pull out only water soluble compounds, tincturing captures both water- and fat-soluble compounds, delivering the full spectrum of bioactive compounds in a form that is readily absorbed in the body.
Tincture vs capsulated supplements:
Capsulated herbal powders are a convenient method of herbal intake. They are simple and inexpensive to transport - they rarely require any special precautions except in extremely hot temperatures where melting can happen.
On the other hand, they aren't always as potent or absorbable as tinctures. Tinctures are much more potent. Their popularity has grown in recent years as people become aware of the benefits they offer. Tinctures contain a high concentration of herbal extracts that have been soaked in alcohol and most likely will take on some color and scent from the herbs used to make them.
