Our organically grown ingredients and how they help:
Strengthens the immune system and helps fight infection.
Chrysanthemum flowers have repeatedly been shown to have antibacterial and antimicrobial effects, which can help prevent the growth and spread of bacteria as well as other microorganisms. It is effective in fighting infections, especially combined with the other minerals it contains.
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. It belongs to the category of “Herbs that clear Heat and relieve Toxicity”. That makes it ideal to deal with occasional clogged ducts. It also increases milk production.
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), 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.
Eleuthero, also known as Siberian Ginseng, has been an herb occupying a significant place in Chinese medicine for thousands of years as an adaptogen. By increasing immune cell production of the body, Eleuthero helps boost the immune system. By boosting the immune system, Eleuthero may help speed up the healing process.
Cinnamon not only adds to the flavor of this tea, they also have antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.
Angelica is a herb used in Chinese medicine to enrich blood, promote blood circulation and modulate the immune system. It is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Ginger also contains salicylates, which your body transforms into a chemical substance called salicylic acid. Salicylic acid prevents your nerves making certain prostaglandins and this eases pain and discomfort.
Echinacea contains active substances that boost immune function, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and have hormonal, antiviral, and antioxidant effects.
Always consult with your doctor before you start taking herbal medicines.
