Camellia “sinensis” Discussion:
We wildcrafted the lovely and magical green tea, Camellia sinensis, along with its blossom. As far as we can tell, no one else does this. We wanted to share a study on how adding the blossom to the aerial parts, may offer a synergetic enhancement that may increase enzymatic activity by hundreds of percent! By incorporating the flower, it may offer added natural enzymatic activity! To view the study on the benefits of the flower, Click Here. A new ﬂavonol glycoside, chakaﬂavonoside, was identiﬁed in tea ﬂowers.
EGCG has been claimed to be potentially important in the fight against Lyme. Although, in his book, “Healing Lyme”, Dr. Buhner discusses its toxicity when overused. It may become toxic to the liver and to the thyroid. Just as any other single extraction of a compound, there may be a natural synergy if derived from a whole food source. He tells us to just have a cup of brewed green tea because it may offer support with Bartonella-generated endothelial cell damage. Green tea as a whole food is known to protect the liver! He also suggests using green tea in combination with quercetin, which has inspired our QuerBerine Tea™, quercetin, berberine, and wildcrafted green tea, extracted in grape alcohol. All three are highly and widely synergistic, especially in the fight against Lyme.
It can also be used topically, as it is used by others for lesions and even chronic skin diseases. It is considered to have astringent (mucus-dying) compounds, as well as a natural source of quercetin. The high caffeine it holds may give a boost of energy when needed the most. The flower is normally considered to be a waste and the plants are pruned to lower its production. We understand and appreciate their importance, as Dr. Buhner always mentions how flowers may not only contain all of the compounds within the plant, but some additional, rare, and unique ones as well!
It has been a fundamental herb of importance, recognized in Chinese medicine, as well as being considered a rare delicate herbal tea. It has free radical capabilities, as well as oxidation support, both important to combating disease. It may also potentiate your detox processes, assisting the body in the purging of carcinogenic toxins.
There are so many benefits that we cannot list them all. We suggest skipping over, by Clicking Here, to read an extensive list of benefits of green tea. This study mentions many other potentially beneficial processes concerning biofilm, bacteria, cardiovascular, blood pressure, cholesterol, weight, neurological, glucose, eye, organ, collagen, bone-strengthening, skin, anti-aging, memory, psychological, histamine, fertility, allergenic, vitamin, aromatic compounds, mitochondrial protection, anti-tumor activity, and balancing of the beneficial biome of many different internal areas. It discusses numerous advantages of incorporating green tea into your regimen.
We highly suggest getting our wildcrafted green tea products as either an herbal tea or tincture. The tea version would be the most favorable because hot water releases aromatic compounds, which green tea, especially the flower, is known for. The tincture would offer great additional added saturation of compounds already extracted, containing biological activity, and readily available and bioavailable for uptake, as plants do in nature!
The variations for each product are in the order that we recommend for that specific one. This may give you an idea of which versions to get and where to start if you decide this is the route for you. There may be instances where we use an ingredient that can only come as a liquid. For example, pokeberry juice or essential oil. Only the liquid products will contain that specific ingredient and it will simply have to be left out of the powdered version. Herbal compounds may accumulate, over time. Saturation is key!
Standard Tinctures – Herbal compounds extracted in an alcohol base, which may offer the highest absorption. When a tincture sets under the tongue, the microscopic, pre-extracted compounds are readily bioavailable and they absorb through the tissue, similar to plant intake in nature! Alcohol may carry them into the bloodstream, where they may then may circulate to the organs. For this particular blend, we recommend a tincture.
Lipospheric Tinctures – Standard tinctures are put through an energetic process to collide the herbal compounds and encase them in oxygenated bubbles. This method is an oxygenation process, which completely changes the color of the solution. This version of a tincture may always off the highest absorption.
Capsules – Size 00, vegetable capsules. Our capsules are handmade, to order.
Herbal Tea – Each teabag can be brewed up to three times, resulting in three cups of tea, each. Generally, this means that you may get 60-75 cups of tea per 6 oz. order! Each label specifies the brewing instructions, which highly depends on the parts used in the tea. If you wish to have loose herb, rather than bagged as it comes, simply leave a note specifying so, while completing your order.
Glycerites – Herbal compounds extracted in vegetable glycerin. This may be ideal for those most sensitive and especially children.
Tinctures are animal & child-safe, at the appropriate dosage. They can be used as an additive to personal products like lotion, detox bath, nebulizing, topically, and even as belly button soaks. Best results may come with working up to the highest dose, staying consistent.
We always choose unprocessed, ethically wildcrafted plant material, when possible. We also add freshly harvested, green plant material, wherever we can! This allows for a rare and unique availability of enzymes. Normally these enzymes are lost in the drying process and as far as we know, we are unique to us. Many companies that make simple elixirs don’t even know how to do it properly!
When we purchase herbs, we choose whole plant material, for us to grind into a silky fine powder, as we need it. This ensures quality, freshness, and abundant compounds. “Full-spectrum” means that the product contains every part of the plant, including the roots, and wherever we can, we even add the seed, flower, and/or fruit!
We have had our products energetically tested by an energetic practitioner, using a bioresonance scanning system that is well-known. She reported back that our products were over 300% more energetic than any others in her system! Over the years customers have continued to energetically test our products with their own body and they have passed every test they have ever been put through. Some say they have even surpassed the major brands!
Always use herbals wisely and with common sense!
