Our organically grown ingredients and how they help:
Stinging Nettle Leaf
Stinging Nettle has been proven to be have effective anti- inflammatory properties. It has been used historically to treat arthritis and relieve sore muscles.
Burdock Root is full fatty oils and antioxidants which help reduce inflammation throughout the body.
Dandelion contains taraxasterol, a compound known for having significant antioxidant properties that combat inflammation.
Glycyrrhizin is the component in licorice which blocks and relieves inflammation. It also supports the body's release of cortisol (which suppresses the immune system, easing the pain and occurrence of arthritis), but it also inhibits some of the side effects of cortisol (such as adrenal fatigue and anxiety).
Turmeric is an extremely effective anti-inflammatory herb, and thus an effective pain reliever. It contains at least two chemicals (curcumin and curcuminoids) which decrease inflammation.
Orange peels contain a bioflavonoid called nobiletin that can lower inflammation and overall pain in joints such as the knees.
Peppermint and Cinnamon
Peppermint and Cinnamon not only add to the flavor of this tea, they also have antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.
Always consult with your doctor before you start taking herbal medicines.
