If you’re reading this, you’re most likely already on board with keeping yourself and your family healthy so you can feel good year round… and this tea is an immune booster like no other that you don’t want to miss out on!
Pine needle tea has been used for medicinal purposes by indigenous cultures for thousands of years and is best known for its abilities to:
⟁ strengthen the immune system due to its high levels of Vitamin C
⟁ prevent respiratory infections
⟁ stimulate circulation
⟁ halt blood clotting due to the shikimic acid it contains
⟁ increase cognitive performance
⟁ improve eyesight, hair, and red blood cell production due to its high levels of Vitamin A
⟁ reduce free radicals due to its antioxidant content
⟁ relieve coughs, chest congestion and sore throats & more!
With this being said, there are 20 known toxic varieties of pine trees, so we recommend doing your research or working with a trained herbalist/natural medicine practitioner to make sure you aren’t harvesting toxic pine needles.
To make this recipe even more epic, we added in our Shilajit, which is one of the most powerful adaptogens in the world. Our Shilajit Black Gold is a complex mineral resin known for its abilities to support a healthy immune response, improve digestion, boost metabolism, support healing, protect cells, regenerate blood, improve sleep and much more.
This tea is sure to bring vitality to whoever drinks it, so be sure to share with others to spread the word!
