- Contains the herb burdock which is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine as a diuretic, to induce sweating, as an alterative to help remove accumulated waste products via the kidneys, skin and mucous membranes and to help alleviate the pain associated with rheumatism.
How It Works:
E-Tea consists of concentrated extracts of four common herbs based on a traditional Native American formula — burdock root, sheep sorrel aerial parts, slippery elm inner bark and turkey rhubarb root. These ingredients help support immunity and detoxification of the body. NSP’s E-Tea is formulated according to the Essiac tea formula. Named after Rene Caisse (Caisse spelled backwards), a Canadian nurse (circa 1920s), this combination is actually an herbal formula given to her by the Ojibwa Indians. Due to the complexity of the preparation process, it would take hours to make this tea at home. E-Tea provides a convenient capsule form of Essiac Tea.
