Description - Research and Analysis
This herbal tea blend of Senna, Birch bark, Blackcurrant, Licorice, and Meadowsweet is specially formulated to aid elimination and fluid secretion while promoting regularity.
Senna (Cassia angustifolia) 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.
Birch Bark (Betula alba) is considered both a bitter and an astringent. A leaf tea made by infusion was used historically to help support gravel and kidney stones when taken daily for a time. Birch bark can also be used historically as a cream, salve, wash or bath additive for the support therapy of various skin problems, resulting from the action of the betulinic acid occurring naturally in the bark of the tree. Also, the inner bark contains an oil which is sometimes substituted for wintergreen in various (OTC) skin liniments.
Black Currant (Ribes nigrim) is a good source of minerals and vitamins, especially vitamin C. They have diuretic, cleansing, diaphoretic and febrifuge actions, help to increase bodily resistance to infections and are a valuable supportive for helping support coughs and colds. By encouraging the reduction of fluids the leaves can help to reduce blood volume and thereby support healthy blood pressure levels. The FDA has permitted claims that Licorice (Liquiritia officinalis) provides "soothing benefits for the stomach, digestive tract, and as an antioxidant"; quot;botanical support for digestive, liver and respiratory function"; a "digestive herb which benefits and soothes the stomach"; and "scientific research indicates its soothing benefits for the stomach, digestive tract, and as an antioxidant."
Meadowsweet (Filiipendula ulmaria) is one of the best digestive supportives available and as such will be indicated in many complaints, if they are approached holistically. It acts to protect and soothe the mucous membranes of the digestive tract, reducing excess acidity and easing nausea. It is used in supporting heartburn, hyperacidity, stomach aches and peptic irritation. Its gently astringency can be useful in supporting diarrhoea in children. The presence of aspirin-like chemicals explains Meadowsweet's action in reducing fever and supporting the pain of joint pain in muscles and joints.

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.
- Birch leaves should not be used to treat edema (collections of fluids) resulting from reduced cardiac or renal (kidney) activity.
- Do not use licorice if you have high blood pressure, liver disease, or low levels of potassium. Women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) should not use licorice during PMS, due to its ability to cause water retention or bloating.
- Do not use Black Currant if you are taking water pills, since Black Currant can increase the amount of water loss from the body.Before using any Meadowsweet products, consult a medical professional if you are taking anticoagulants or other medications. Do not use Meadowsweet if you have a hypersensitivity to aspirin or aspirin products.
Keep out of reach of children. Not to be used by pregnant or nursing women.
