Organic Hibiscus, Organic Rosehip, Organic Raspberry Leaves, Organic Liquorice Root, Organic Lemongrass, Organic Blackcurrant (1%).
- Medicinal benefits: Blackcurrants are strongly anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory and they also protect and strengthen delicate blood vessels. Anti-oxidants are important because they help to prevent free-radical damage in the body including heart disease and cancer. The berries are also high in vitamin C, thought to improve resistance to infection and this makes them a valuable remedy for colds and flu. The leaves are used as a diuretic and by reducing blood volume can help to lower blood pressure. They are also traditionally used as a gargle for sore throats and mouth ulcers. This Heath and Heather blend also includes hibiscus, a known anti-bacterial, as well as rosehips and lemongrass, both traditionally used for their anti-viral and anti-infective actions.
