using herbs as medicine

Hello all,

Please could you help,

Which is best to use? Powders or tinctures?

I can make a lot of my own tinctures but can get hold of many more powdered herbs and make into capsules which sometimes seem easier than making the tinctures, so i just wondered if powders were as good as tinctures.

Many thanks,
