Forgot to say I also read where cistus incanus tea helps with aging...and wrinkles.
I haven't noticed any improvement in those areas yet, but I'm crossing my fingers!
I'm not the first post about cistus incanus tea, but it's been such a help to me that I want to submit this post to bring it everyone's attention again.
I'd ordered it a few months ago after reading about it on this forum.
There were many benefits noted, but I did some searching on Google and found some more.
Here are just a few in no particular order:
- biofilm buster
- anti inflamatory
- protects DNA
- crosses the blood brain barrier
- is 100% absorbed in the gut
- whitens teeth
- strong antioxidant and eliminates free radicals
- reduces symptoms of common cold and upper respiratory infections
- helps with urinary tract infections
- slows aging process
- helps heal skin infections
- good for cardiovascular health
Like the many many things I've ordered since I've been sick, I don't always jump right on it when it comes in the mail. This is because I'd taken some herb de jour I'd ordered a couple of years ago before finding this website and had gotten REALLY sick...so while I was excited about trying something new...I was scared too.
I decided to wait until a weekend to try it and I drank my first cup about three or four weeks ago.
Well...I have to say, I wish I'd tried it sooner because it had zero side effects and noticeable benefits.
The most noticeable benefit I've seen so far is with my skin. I've battled one area for a couple of years and since I've started with this tea, I've noticed a definite improvement. I've also noticed I've been calmer and less anxious. I'd read about that benefit online a while back but couldn't find it again tonight when I was searching for things to put on the list...but I've certainly noticed it.
I couldn't find it in any of the grocery stores I go to, but found it online. They have it on Amazon, but the best one I found was from Health Embassy, and I found that one on etsy.com.
It doesn't come in tea bags, so I just poured it loose in a teapot with boiling water and pour it through a strainer into my cup. I sweeten it with liquid stevia and also like to put some almond milk in it as well.
I have one of those big insulated metal cups and fill it up with steaming hot tea in the morning and sip on it all day long. The mug keeps it hot and it tastes pretty good with the stevia and almond milk.
Some say it tastes bad, but I didn't find that to be the case at all.
Just wanted to pass this on in the hopes it will help someone else.
