Depurative Formula Tea is an herbal depurative or blood cleanser. Sarsaparilla, one of the herbal components, contains saponins that may assist with the reduction of metabolic waste products. This gives the herb it's characteristic diuretic and depurative properties. Both Senna and Buckthorn Bark are traditionally included in herbal laxative preparations, but due to their support of eliminative functions, they may also be useful as blood cleansers. Horsetail presents depurative, diuretic, digestive and aperitive properties through the support of removal of excess water and harmful bacteria from the body. St. John's Wort, is considered to be helpful as an astringent with both diuretic and depurative support. Soapwort and Licorice assist with mild cleansing or purifying effects, but in conjunction with the other herbs detailed above, they can enhance the therapeutic action of this special herbal combination.

If you have water retention and swelling due to a weak heart or kidneys, do not use Horsetail.
Be sure to drink plenty of fluids while taking this herb.
Do not take Licorice if you have chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, or any disease that impedes the flow of bile from the liver. Avoid it also if you have abnormal muscle tension, poor kidney function, or low potassium levels in your blood.
When taken in high dosages for an extended period of time, Licorice Root may lead to excessive loss of salt from the blood, water retention, high blood pressure, and heart irregularities. Because of the possibility of these side effects, limit your use of Licorice to 6 weeks. The side effects disappear after the drug is discontinued.
Licorice can increase the potassium loss caused by the other drugs, such as diuretics that flush excess water from the body (Diuril, Zaroxolyn, others). This potassium loss can, in turn, increase your sensitivity to drugs containing digitalis, such as the heart medication Lanoxin.
Licorice may also increase the effects, and unwanted side effects, of steroid medications such as prednisone (Deltasone).
Do not take Licorice preparations during pregnancy.
May increase sun sensitivity, especially in fair skinned individuals.
Seek professional medical advise prior to taking this product, if you are taking any of the following medications, MAO-inhibiting anti-depressants, anti-coagulants, oral contraceptives, anti-epilepsy drugs, antiretroviral drugs (protease inhibitors) or immunosupressants.
Avoid Buckthorn if you have an intestinal obstruction, an acute inflammatory intestinal disorder such as Crohn's Disease, ulcerative colitis, appendicitis, or any abdominal pain of unknown origin.
Not for use by children under 12.
Buckthorn can cause abdominal pain or discomfort. If it does, reduce the dosage.
Do not take Buckthorn for more than 1 to 2 weeks without consulting a doctor. Long-term use can lead to potassium deficiency, intestinal dysfunction, heart problems, kidney disease, swelling, and bone problems.
Potassium plays an important role in regulating the heart, so depleting it through long-term use of laxatives can affect the action of certain heart medications. There could be an increase in the effect of drugs such as digitalis and digoxin (Lanoxin). Medications taken to steady the heartbeat could also be affected.
Consult with your doctor before using Buckthorn while pregnant or breastfeeding.
