[ectext]General Information: Each 1.7g sachet contains :
Horopito leaf (Pseudowintera colorata)
This New Zealand herb was traditionally used by the early European settlers and Maori who made a tea of the leaves for stomach upsets. This organically grown Horopito has been selected for its high percentage of microbial friendly actives. It also contains high levels of antioxidants, which are released in hot water.
Anise Seed (Pimpinella anisum)
This traditional South American remedy has a long reputation as a digestive aid. Its active ingredient, anethole, supports the positive action of the active ingredient in Horopito leaves.
Peppermint leaf (Mentha x piperita)
Peppermint infusions have traditionally been taken after meals to soothe digestion, settle the stomach and relieve occasional nausea, heartburn and flatulence.
Supporting Your Digestive System
Our health and vitality depends largely on how well our digestive system functions. Common problems like indigestion, flatulence, colic, constipation and food allergies are often an indication that our digestive tract is not breaking down, assimilating and eliminating like it should.
The complex digestive flora (microbes) in our gut need all the help they can get in this age of convenience food and demanding lifestyles. We should of course avoid chemical additives and highly processed food whenever we can and enjoy the raw and whole foods that our digestive system has evolved to process.
In many Europe there is a long-standing tradition of drinking herbal teas after meals to improve digestive function. Forest Herbs Research has gone one further by adding New Zealand’s flora-friendly Horopito leaf to the traditional digestive herbs of Peppermint and Aniseed. This has created a truly unique herbal tea to calm the mucous membranes of the gastro-intestinal tract and enhance the digestive process.
Take as an enjoyable and refreshing drink after food and also whenever discomfort, indigestion or bloating occurs. For full soothing benefit aimed at long term support take 3 cups daily after meals for 3 weeks. Can be safely taken long term as a refreshing tea for digestive maintenance. For maximum flavour and herbal benefit place one teabag in cup, pour over boiling water and leave to infuse for 4-8 minutes.
Use as directed. If symptoms persist see your health professional.
