This herbal tea is a special blend of Golden Rod, Hyssop, Uva Ursi, Mate, and Senna, formulated specifically for urinary tract health and maintenance.
Goldenrod, which can be used to help support urinary and kidney infections and stones, and catarrh, helps ease backache caused by renal complaints because of its cleansing, eliminative action. Goldenrod can also be tried to help support symptoms of joint pain. A cold compress of goldenrod is helpful on fresh wounds due to the anti-inflammatory properties it possesses. Sweet goldenrod can be used as an astringent and as a calmative.
Hyssop, in small doses, can be used to help support jaundice and liver congestion. It can help promote urine flow and is also laxative. In large doses it is emetic and purgative. Deaths have been recorded due to its use as an abortion agent. It is not used for domestic use. As a cardiotonic it supports cardiac oedema, via the urine.
Uva Ursi is a natural tonic for your urinary system. It soothes, nurtures and strengthens urinary membranes and may help support infections such as cystitis. It's specifically effective in cases of highly acidic urine (uric acid).
Considered by many to be the national drink of South America, Yerba Maté is a natural diuretic, and overall cleansing body tonic. It has been used effectively to help support disorders such as bronchitis, colds, coughs, fever, headaches, asthma, laryngitis, joint pain, and tuberculosis, and it can also be tried to help support blood purification.
Senna is a safe and potentially effective laxative used widely throughout the world. The hydroxanthracene glycosides are not absorbed in the upper gut but are converted by the microflora of the large intestine into active aglycones, principally rhein anthrone, which exert a laxative effect on the colon. The mechanism of this action is twofold: stimulation of colonic motility, resulting in augmented propulsion and accelerated colonic transit, reducing the opportunity for fluid absorption from the faeces. It also influences fluid and electrolyte absorption and secretion by the colon, resulting in a net fluid secretion. The mucilage inhibits fluid absorption, enhancing the laxative effect.

Fresh drawn, boiling water contains the most oxygen, thereby giving the fullest taste to tea. Water that has been boiling for some time looses the oxygen and thereby the best taste.
Allow full expansion during the infusion and easy removal after the time for steeping has elapsed.
Draw into a tea pot or kettle the best fresh water that you have available.
Warm the teapot and cups while the water is boiling.

Long term use of Senna as a laxative may lead to dependency. Only use for occasional relief.
Uva Ursi is not for prolonged use without consulting a health practitioner. May cause green color in urine. Discontinue use if nausea or upset stomach occurs. Contraindicated in kidney disorders and irritated digestive conditions.
Do not take Goldenrod if you have chronic kidney disease. Do not use it to flush the urinary tract if you have swelling caused by heart or kidney problems. Goldenrod is unlikely to cause problems when taken at usual dosage levels, but be sure to drink lots of fluids while using it.
Hyssop should not be used during pregnancy.
