When I say the name of this tea, I have had most people respond “I could use some of that!” Apparently, most of us could use a bit of mental focus and clarity of thought, and why not an improved memory to boot? Well, I can’t promise or guarantee that this particular blend of herbs will do these things for you, but it can certainly help improve those parameters you’re looking to improve.
By increasing circulation throughout the body, but particularly to the head and brain, and improving energy in a sustainable way, this blend of herbs can help increase “mental clarity” over time, or perhaps immediately when you need a boost during a long or stressful day, or just need to “clear your head”.
Gotu kola is often used to improve mental function, which is does perhaps primarily by increasing circulation. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps with all types of connective tissue repair and function. Ginkgo may be the most-recognized herb for memory and focus, and although results are mixed in studies, there is no doubt that it increases circulation and is a powerful antioxidant. Rhodiola is an adaptogenic root that can help normalize body functions and is best known for increasing energy levels and helping improve recall and retention of information. As an adaptogen, it somehow acts on the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis to balance the body and increase energy and mental function. Rosemary is another potent antioxidant, cell protective, that increases circulation and is uplifting in its action. Hawthorn leaf & flower helps improve cardiovascular function and circulation and is antioxidant. You may notice a theme here. Finally, peppermint and spearmint add their invigorating scent and taste to open the sinuses and clear the head to complement actions of the other herbs in this mix.
Contains: Gotu kola, ginkgo, rhodiola, rosemary, hawthorn leaf & flower, peppermint, & spearmint.
A tea designed with the fresh green growth of Spring in mind. Nettle, Cleavers, and Dandelion leaf are all experiencing fresh new growth in the woods and fields around us. These herbs are mineral rich and gently detoxifying, particularly to the kidneys, helping move the stagnation from winter. Add the green antioxidant, metabolism-boosting properties of Green Tea, and the herbs Yerba Santa, Nettle, and Goldenrod which help reduce the histamine reaction and the inflammatory response of seasonal allergies. Yerba santa can help break up congestion and mucus and tone/tighten the sinus membranes, a beneficial effect for allergies.
Contains: Nettle leaf, Dandelion leaf, Green tea, Yerba Santa, Sassafras, Cleavers, Goldenrod, and Hawthorne leaf & flower.
