Dried Herbs and Teas

Herbal beverages, commonly known as teas, have gained popularity among health conscious consumers. They have penetrated into an emerging niche market along with other popular beverages such as tea, coffee and cocoa which are also prepared using plant materials. In addition, a rapidly growing segment of the population uses herbal beverages for slimming, weight loss and a number of other cosmetic purposes.

In general, herbal teas are prepared from natural ingredients of different morphological plant parts, namely leaves, stems, roots, fruits, buds and flowers. Herbal teas are rich sources of natural bioactive compounds such as carotenoids, phenolic acids, flavonoids, coumarins, alkaloids, polyacetylenes, saponins and terpenoids, among others. Scientific evidence shows that these bioactive compounds render a myriad of biological effects, such as antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, antiinflammatory, antiallergic, antithrombotic and vasodilatory action, as well as antimutagenicity, anticarcinogenicity and antiaging effects, among others. 

The table below shows some examples of commonly used herbal teas with proven clinical benefits:

Chaga mushroom might be one of the most important anti-aging foods ever. Its broad range of remarkable health benefits make it one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet. Hailed as “King of the Medicinal Mushrooms” Chaga is a disease-fighting power house that has been shown through considerable scientific research to have powerful immune enhancing, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-aging properties. Its rich nutrients increase power, energy, stamina, and stimulate healing processes within the body. This “complex living pharmacy” is a good source of vitamins and minerals making it the most alkaline food on Earth. Chaga is a top source of antioxidant enzymes, digestive enzymes, sterols, flavonoids, and the polysaccharides- beta-glucans which give Chaga its potent immune-supporting properties. It may protect the body from oxidation, infection, and toxins; ensures cells and tissues are strong; repairs DNA, and heals degeneration. Chaga also contains the highest amount of melanin and helps the body produces more superoxide dismutase (SOD) than any plant known. Few foods on this earth, if any, have the incredible nutritional profile and broad spectrum of health benefits that Chaga holds. In Chinese medicine it is referred to as the “gift of God” and the only known side effect of wild Chaga is excellent health. Chaga is the super food of super foods!

Cordyceps mushroom has a long history of use as a longevity food. It is one of the superstars in Chinese tonic herbalism. It’s a superb athlete's tonic for building physical power, increasing sexual vigour, vitality, mental energy, boosting immunity and prolonging life. Wild Cordyceps are so rare, potent, and highly regarded that they’re worth more per ounce than gold making them one of the most expensive herbs in the world. Today, modern “fermentation” technology has allowed us to grow cultivated Cordyceps at a far less expense. Studies have shown that the cultivated variety shares all the same benefits and nutritional profile as wild Cordyceps and is just as potent and efficacious. Cordyceps is a potent Kidney Jing tonic that is known to strengthen and increase the sexual functions, brain power, and the structural integrity and healing abilities of the body. It is one of the best sexual tonics that is commonly used for impotence, sexual malaise, frigidity and infertility. Consistent use helps to strengthen the skeletal structure, the lower back, the knees, and the ankles. Cordyceps is a major Lung tonic. It is highly revered by athletes for its ability to greatly improve performance, strengthen respiratory power, increase oxygen utilisation, build muscle, increase endurance, stamina and promote fast recovery. Cordyceps is high in polysaccharides and beta-glucans that help our body resist a wide range pathogenic bacteria, fungi and viruses. It has been shown to help regulate blood pressure and strengthen heart muscle. Overall, Cordyceps is an extremely effective and powerful life-enhancing agent.

Primal Energy is great for cultivating day to day energy and adaptability to stress. The adaptogenic nature of these tonic herbs builds physical strength and works to warm and activate the body's breakdown and assimilation of nutrients without excessively stimulating the nervous system. This caffeine-free blend provides a stimulating effect without depleting the deep energy reserves of the body (Jing), or giving one the jitters or those common crashing feelings that caffeine overdose often delivers. Primal Energy is suitable to use on a daily basis for people of all ages.

Note: Teelixir Astragalus undergoes a process of dual-extraction using water and organic ethanol. Organic ethanol is used to extract the adaptogenic terpenes while the hot water extracts the immune-modulating compounds. This is to ensure that we extract the full-spectrum of healing compounds, both the water soluble and oil soluble constituents from the Astragalus root. This product is completely safe for children. Less than 100 ppm of the organic ethanol remains in the extract.
