We show that the types of the witnesses in the Herbrand functional interpretation can be simplified, avoiding the use of "sets of functionals" in the interpretation of implication and universal quantification. This is done by presenting an alternative formulation of the Herbrand functional interpretation, which we show to be equivalent to the original presentation. As a result of this investigation we also strengthen the monotonicity property of the original presentation, and prove a monotonicity property for our alternative definition.
