Introduction: A descriptive longitudinal study was made, with the aim to assess the level of knowledge of patients with chronic non-communicable diseases about the use of herbal medicinal tinctures in the health area during two-year (2014 to 2015). Methods: The study population consisted of all patients categorized at the group III (a total of 443), belonging to the area of the Polyclinic II Celia Sanchez Manduley, Trinidad. Non-probability sample was selected in a targeted manner with volunteers (225 patients). Demographic, epidemiological and cognitive variables were used. Results and Conclusions: A total of 64.0% of patients with chronic non-communicable diseases have no knowledge about the use of herbal medicinal tinctures and have little knowledge on how they act. Mild essential hypertension was the most common chronic disease found in this study, and so, the most frequent use of these preparations was to lower blood pressure.
