This blend contains Sheep sorrel, slippery elm bark, turkey rhubarb & burdock root.


Sheep sorrela common herb found in many regions, has been traditionally used for its potential health benefits:


  • Antioxidant Properties: Sheep sorrel contains various antioxidants, including flavonoids and vitamins, which may help neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress. Antioxidants contribute to overall health by protecting cells from damage caused by these free radicals.


  • Potential Diuretic and Detoxifying Effects: Sheep sorrel is believed to have diuretic properties, aiding in increasing urine production. Some herbal traditions suggest that it may assist in detoxification processes by supporting kidney function and facilitating the elimination of waste products from the body.


Slippery elm bark, derived from the inner bark of the slippery elm tree, has been used traditionally for various potential health benefits:


  • Soothes Digestive Tract: Slippery elm is known for its mucilage content, which forms a gel-like substance when mixed with water. This gel coats and soothes the lining of the digestive tract, offering relief from conditions like heartburn, acid reflux, and gastrointestinal irritation. It may also help alleviate symptoms of inflammatory bowel conditions.


  • Throat and Respiratory Support: Due to its mucilaginous nature, slippery elm is used to soothe sore throats and calm coughs. It forms a protective layer in the throat, easing irritation and potentially providing relief from coughing or throat discomfort.


Turkey rhubarb, also known as Chinese rhubarb, is an herb traditionally used in herbal medicine for potential health benefits:


  • Digestive Support and Laxative Properties: Turkey rhubarb is often utilized for its laxative effects. It contains compounds called anthraquinones that stimulate bowel movements, aiding in relieving constipation. It's believed to support digestive health by promoting regular bowel movements.


  • Liver and Detoxification Support: Some herbal traditions suggest that turkey rhubarb may support liver health and aid in detoxification processes. It's believed to have properties that promote bile production and flow, potentially assisting in liver detoxification and supporting overall liver function.


Burdock root, a vegetable that's also used in traditional medicine, offers several potential health benefits:


  • Detoxification Support: Burdock root is believed to have diuretic properties, aiding in the elimination of toxins through increased urine production. It's also considered a blood purifier, assisting the body's natural detoxification processes.


  • Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Burdock root contains compounds with anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation in the body. It's often used to alleviate conditions related to inflammation, such as arthritis or skin issues like eczema.


Additionally, burdock root is rich in antioxidants and contains various nutrients like vitamins (such as B vitamins) and minerals (including iron, potassium, and manganese), contributing to overall health and well-being.
