EveryDay Detox is an herbal tea used to promote healthy liver function. The use of herbs in EveryDay Detox for liver protection is supported by pharmacological data and traditional use. Both licorice root and schisandra fruit have demonstrated significant liver protective action in various test models. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), chicory root is used to remove heat from the liver, stimulate bile secretion, and promote digestion. Lycium fruit (aka gou qi zi or gogi berry) acts to reinforce the liver and the kidney. Unless directed otherwise by your licensed acupuncturist or naturopathic doctor, drink 3 cups daily, at least 30 minutes before or after meals. It’s taste is balanced: Schisandra fruit contains all five tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, pungent and salty. Licorice and lycium are sweet while chicory and dandelion are slightly bitter.
EveryDay Detox supports the normal cleansing process of the liver by helping to filter, neutralize and rid the body of accumulated toxins. It also aids the manufacture of bile to help digest fats and promote digestion. Based on a traditional Asian formulation approach, the herbs in this slightly sweet and sour blend have a long history of safe and beneficial use. EveryDay detox can be used daily because it does not contain any harsh laxative or purgative herbs. While we do not accept a quick fix method to liver detoxification, we do believe that regular use of EveryDay Detox will complement a wellness approach that includes improved overall dietary habits, daily exercise, healthy relaxation and sleep patterns. We wish you good health. Medicinal herbs must be protected to ensure their effectiveness. Every tea bag in this box has been individually wrapped and sealed for freshness. Nourishes and Protects.

Its chinese name bei wu wei zi literally means five taste fruit because it is considered to contain all the five tastes: Sweet, sour, bitter pungent and salty.

The berries are harvested fully ripe after the first Fall frost, then sun dried.
