Alcohol and Sugar Content

How much alcohol and sugar is there in homeopathic medicines?

Homeopathic mother tinctures generally contain 65% alcohol, or 1.026 grams per 100 drops (for comparison, a glass of wine contains about 9 grams).  At higher potencies, homeopathic medicines in liquid form are 25% alcohol, so the amount in a dose of 10 drops is minimal.

The total amount of sugar contained in a tube-dose of 20 pellets (a common daily dose for a homeopathic medicine) is about 5 grams, or one teaspoon.
