Restorative Iced Tea
As our frozen lakes and rivers begin to flow again, it's a great time to tend to our inner waterways. Adding cleansing herbs to your routine is a gentle way to wake up the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system after a long winter.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Spring season is associated with the liver and gallbladder. These organ systems are essential in filtering out toxins and promoting cellular renewal. Supporting these processes with nourishing herbs can help us feel more vibrant and energetic.
This Restorative Iced Tea is easy to make, refreshing, and stimulating to the internal waterways. The recipe features rejuvenating herbs for Spring renewal, such as Dandelion, Burdock and Milk Thistle.
Dandelion Root supports the liver by clearing congestion and boosting digestive wellness. Rich in antioxidants, this herb regenerates tissues that have been harmed by free radicals.
Burdock Root purifies the blood, kidneys, lymphatic system and GI tract. It strengthens lymphatic function and assists the body in detoxifying metabolic waste.
Milk Thistle Seed protects healthy liver cells from inflammation and free radical damage. This herb stimulates the production of glutathione, one of the body’s major antioxidants.
