Heart Tonic Tea
SKU: SB:Heart Tea
3.5 oz. dry herbs
This preparation is great for the heart and the circulatory system, supporting health for those with irregular heartbeat, accelerated heartbeat and congestive heart disease. The properties of the Hawthorne berry help to protect heart cells. It has also been shown to help the heart muscle survive on lesser amounts of blood and oxygen.
Other benefits are that it thins the blood, reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels, increases circulation, and reduces blood pressure and blood fat all while toning the heart muscle.
How to use
To make the tea:
Put 2-3 Tablespoons of the tea into 32 ounces of distilled or purified water and soak overnight. ONLY USE STAINLESS STEEL OR GLASS COOKWARE. On the next morning puree in the blender. Then transfer to a pot and bring to a boil, immediately reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Then strain out the herbs, but do not discard. Let cool a bit but drink hot. Put the used herbs back in the container for soaking, add 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs, about 20 ounces of pure water, and repeat the process. Keep adding new herbs to the old ones until after the third day then discard all herbs and start over.
Add: 1-2 dropperfuls of Heart Tonic Concentrate to each cup of decoction.
Optional: 2-6 drops of Cayenne Concentrate
Drink 1 cup of tea 3-4 times daily.
NOTE: This formula is even more effective when used in conjunction with the Heart Tonic Concentrate.
Ingredients: Hawthorne Berry, leaf and powder, Red Clover Blossoms, Motherwort and Cayenne pepper.
Hawthorne Berry, leaves, and powder
This berry promotes the health of the circulatory system, treats angina (chest pain), high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and cardiac arrhythmia and has been found to strengthen the heart, lower cholesterol and aid digestion. Hawthorne can strengthen blood vessels, and clear out blood clots, restore vascular insufficiencies and the heart muscle wall. Antioxidants found in Hawthorne can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.
Red Clover Blossoms
These compounds have antioxidant, anthelmintic (expel parasitic worms), estrogenic, anti-estrogenic and antiangiogenic (stops the growth of blood vessels) properties. Red clover is also an expectorant and a blood cleansing herb. The beta-sitosterol (plant sterols with chemical structures similar to that of cholesterol) in Red Clover Blossoms helps reduce cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. As a blood purifying herb, Red Clover cleanses the liver from toxins and impurities.
Motherwort is an excellent tonic for the heart, strengthening without straining. It may be used in all heart conditions that are associated with anxiety and tension. It is especially useful for hot flashes associated with nervous tension as the primary trigger, accompanied by palpitations of the heart. Motherwort is also used to improve circulation, lower blood lipids, and reduce platelet aggregation.
Cayenne enhances the effectiveness of the other herbs in the tea. Cayenne’s effects on the circulatory system are nothing short of amazing, as it feeds the vital elements into the cell structure of capillaries, veins, and arteries and helps adjust blood pressure to normal levels, helping to rid the body of the bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Cayenne relieves poor circulation, weak digestion, heart disease, chronic pain, sore throats, headaches and toothache. Cayenne soothes the digestive tract and aids digestion by stimulating the flow of stomach secretions and saliva. Poor circulation, weak digestion, heart disease, chronic pain, sore throats, headaches and toothaches can all be benefited by taking Cayenne.
