Triple Leaf Tea's Ancient Chinese Medicinals
Traditional Chinese medicine begin in approximately 2500 B.C. Recently, here in the West, people have discovered the value of this ancient system which focuses on aiding the body's own healing mechanisms through restoring harmony and balance. The Chinese system of herbology has been recorded in ancient text which are studied and employed even today. This time tested knowledge has been passed on from generation to generation over the centuries.
Triple Leaf Tea comes from such a tradition. It is made in the U.S.A. by a Chinese American family-owned business. The company owner can remember stories of his own grandfather selling herbs and teas in his village in China. Today, these traditional Chinese herbal formulas are available to you. We wish you harmony and balance!
The Herbal Laxative Tea Tradition
The herbs in this traditional Chinese formula help promote regularity and provide gentle, effective overnight relief. These herbs were used to help support digestive system function and to 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 was used to lesson discomfort and cramping and to support digestive system function. Licorice root, white mulberry, dandelion and fo-ti were said to help support healthy liver function, promote normal detoxification, build the "chi", or energy, and promote balance. Traditionally, the Chinese considered healthy digestion and elimination important for physical and mental well-being. For additional support in cleansing, use this tea along with Triple Leaf Detox Tea.
