Essiac Tea (original formula)
$20.00 – $35.00
Essiac tea is a popular herbal tea touted for its purported anticancer properties. In the 1920s, Canadian nurse Rene Caisse promoted Essiac tea as a natural cancer treatment, claiming that it was given to her by a patient who originally received it from an Ontario Ojibwa medicine man.
Essiac tea is a blend of different herbs, including:
- Burdock root. This root contains compounds shown to promote blood circulation, improve skin texture, and stabilize blood sugar
- Slippery elm. Revered for its medicinal properties, slippery elm is rich in disease-fighting antioxidants and may aid in treating inflammatory bowel disease
- Sheep sorrel. Also known by its scientific name, Rumex acetosella, sheep sorrel has been shown to have potent antiviral properties in test-tube studies
- Turkish Indian rhubarb. One recent animal study found that Indian rhubarb is high in antioxidants and may inhibit the growth of liver cancer cells in rats
In addition to its purported anticancer properties, Essiac tea is also believed to enhance detoxification, boost immune function, and reduce inflammation
