Yogi Berry DeTox Tea Ingredients
Botanically-speaking, fennel seeds are not seeds, but are the fruits of the sweet fennel plant, an herb that has been cultivated for culinary and medicinal use for thousands of years. In India, fennel seeds are routinely chewed after meals to support digestion and to act as an herbal mouth freshener.
Hibiscus is a large genus of about 200 flowering plants native to warm, temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Used as a primary ingredient in many herbal beverages, hibiscus flower is also used by herbalists to support bowel function and urination. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, hibiscus is used to support skin health.
Burdock Root - a member of the daisy family that originated in Eurasia - is now firmly established as a naturalized plant in North America. Herbalists value burdock for helping to detoxify the liver. The root is served as a food in Japan, where it is known as gobo. Resembling a long brown carrot, burdock can be prepared in the same way you might enjoy a carrot, such as fresh juice or in a stir-fry dish.
Honeybush is indigenous to the cape area of South Africa, where it has been used for centuries to make a beverage and a medicinal tea. Similar to the famous rooibos, also native to South Africa, honeybush brews into a delicious tea with a pleasant, mildly sweet taste and aroma, somewhat like honey. Honeybush tea is caffeine free and supplies antioxidants.
Açaí (aa-sigh-EE) is a grape-sized, deep-purple berry that grows atop palm trees in the Amazon region of Brazil. Açai berries have an earthy taste that's often described as a cross between blackberries and unsweetened chocolate.
Açai berries supply antioxidants; the most notable among these being anthocyanins, which give Açai berries their deep purple color. Such antioxidants help to neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals throughout the body.
Yellow Dock Root
Yellow dock (Rumex crispus) is leafy-green plant distinguished by its yellow carrot-shaped root. In herbal medicine, it has a long history of use as a detoxifying herb, as well as to support the skin and liver; for those purposes it is often combined with dandelion root. A mild laxative, it contains anthraquinone glycosides, the active ingredients also found in senna leaf. A rich source of iron, yellow dock root has been traditionally used to supply iron to the diet.
Stevia is a genus of about 240 species of herbs and shrubs in the sunflower family native to subtropical and tropical South America and Central America. The leaf is used primarily as a sweetener in South America. Locals there use it as a substitute for sugar for those who can't use sugar. Various glycosides, including stevoside - which is about 100 to 200 times sweeter than sugar - provide the sweetness. It is widely used as a non-sugar sweetener in other areas of the world, particularly in Japan.
