Kombucha is also a very detoxifying elixir. In Detox the following three herbs help with this process:
Dandelion Root (Taraxacum officinale) is a natural diuretic. Unlike other natural and synthetic diuretics, dandelion is a source of potassium – a nutrient often lost through the use of diuretics. Dandelion roots and leaves contain high levels of vitamins A, C, D, and B complex as well as iron, magnesium, zinc, and potassium. I use dandelion root in my “Detox” mix because of its supportive properties for liver and gall bladder detoxification and function.
We use organic, cut dandelion root for our “Detox” tea blend.
Stinging Nettle Leaf (Urtica dioica and the closely related Urtica urens) helps cleanse the body of toxins and wastes. Nettle leaves can relieve fluid retention, bladder infections, stones and gravel. It gently stimulates the lymphatic system, seeming to enhance the excretion of wastes through the kidneys. Nettle leaves promote the elimination of uric acid from joints with a gentle, alkalizing diuretic activity. Thus its use is indicated in most types of joint diseases and doubly so in degenerative conditions.
We use organic, cut nettle leaves for our “Detox” tea blend.
Elder Flower (Sambucus canadensis) The European elder grows up to 30 feet, is found throughout Europe, Asia, North Africa, and has been naturalized in the United States. All parts of the elderberry plant have been used medicinally for centuries. Elder flowers are a strong blood cleanser and encourage perspiration which makes them especially effective clearing the skin.
We use organic, dried elder flowers for our “Detox” tea blend.
