Traditional Chinese healers have used schisandra berries for over 2,000 years to support the body’s natural detoxification processes.* We source our berries from wild-collection villages around a giant panda sanctuary in China’s Minshan Mountains, where we’re helping protect half the world’s panda population.
From field to cup, we make sure our teas deliver the benefits of these amazing plants. To deliver consistent high quality teas, we source organically farmed or organically wild-collected herbs from ethical trading partnerships, seeking out medicinal-grade plants. Only a small fraction of the world’s herb supply meets our high quality standards.
Cautions: Consult a healthcare practitioner before taking if you have diabetes. There is limited evidence from preclinical studies that burdock may have hypoglycemic activity. Use by adults with renal failure and/or diabetes, and/or heart failure should be avoided because of possible complications due to hyperkalemia. Consult a healthcare practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen.
Contraindications: Do not use if you are allergic to plants of the Asteraceae/Compositae/Daisy family, such as burdock or dandelion, or if you are allergic to stinging nettle. If hypersensitivity or allergic reactions occur, discontinue use. Do not use if you have gall bladder disorder, or obstruction of the biliary tract, acute gallbladder inflammation, or in the case of active peptic ulcer.
