Digestive System Tea - Promotes Detoxification. The Herbal Laxative Tea Tradition
The herbs in this traditional Chinese formula provide gentle, effective relief of occasional irregularity. These herbs were used traditionally to help support digestive system function, relieve abdominal bloating and promote the body's normal process of detoxification.
Senna is an effective stimulant laxative that promotes bowel movements. Rhubarb root and sickle-pod senna seed were considered milder stimulant laxatives that complement the effects of senna. Ginger, orange peel and tangerine peel were used to lessen discomfort and cramping, and to support digestive system function. Licorice root, white mulberry, dandelion and fo-ti were used to help support healthy liver function, promote normal detoxification, build the "chi", or energy, and promote balance. Healthy digestion and elimination are considered important in Chinese medicine for physical and mental well-being. This is a delicious-tasting herbal tea, with pleasing hint of orange.
