Background and Use
Peppermint is soothing and refreshing and gives this tea a wonderful flavor.
Green Tea has been consumed throughout the ages in Asia. Green Tea is produced by gently heating the freshly cut leaf, thus not allowing oxidation of the enzymes within the leaf to take place. It is known for its antioxidant activity.
Oregon Grape has a history of herbal use dating back to early aboriginal tribes. Oregon Grape root contains berberine, the primary alkaloid found in Goldenseal, thus making it a valuable substitute for the over-harvested Goldenseal plant. It was highly valued by the Eclectic physicians at the turn of the century and is becoming popular once more as people seek an alternative to the scarce Goldenseal.
Rose hips are a source of vitamin C and bioflavonoids and provides flavor to this tea blend.
Orange peel is a source of bioflavonoids and provide flavor to this tea blend.
Calendula has been used medicinally since the 12th century throughout the Mediterranean and Europe. It is a soothing herb.
Goldenseal is another popular herb among the Native Americans that evolved to become an official herbal remedy in the United States Pharmacopeia. It has traditionally been referred to as "king of the mucous membranes" as it was known to help regulate secretions of the mucous membranes.
Goldenseal contains powerful alkaloids, giving it the distinctive yellow-gold color. Presently, this herb is one of the five top-selling herbal products in the United States.
The early 20th century American physicians (Eclectics) prized Red Clover as an excellent alterative. Alteratives, known in folk medicine as "blood cleansers," were seen as herbs that assisted organs in the removal of metabolic waste and toxins from the circulatory system. This valuable herb was the main ingredient in several traditional formulas such as the Hoxey Formula and the Trifolium Compound.
Echinacea purpurea was used by many Native American populations throughout the country. This widespread use was adopted by the Eclectic physicians in the U.S. and its use was documented in medical texts until 1947.
A German pharmaceutical manufacturer imported Echinacea purpurea to Germany in the 1930s. Since then, German and American scientists have been researching the clinical usefulness of the herb with an emphasis on supporting the immune system. Both species of Echinacea are popular in both Europe and in the US. As a result of many clinical trials that were done in the 1990's Echinacea sales account for approximately 10% of the dietary supplement market. Many are still being conducted today.
Contains natural caffeine supplied by the Green tea. Each cup supplies approximately 1/10th of the caffeine found in a cup of coffee. Nutritional supplements containing Echinacea should be used with caution in individuals with autoimmune diseases. Do not take if pregnant or nursing. Avoid excessive or long-term use. Keep out of reach of children. Discontinue if unusual symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dose unless under the guidance of a health care professional.
Individuals sensitive to plants in the Daisy family (sesquiterpene lactone-containing plants) should use all Echinacea supplements with caution.
