We have been using this ourselves.
It has really helped
Historically the ingredients we have used have been the goto helpers for people with joint discomfort. In this tisane we have gently combined tumeric, ginger, honeybush, lemon myrtle and nettle. While often some of these are a bit challenging taste wise, we have managed to combine them in just the right way to create a subtle gentle taste that is quite satisfying and exceptionally good for you.
Turmeric: Clinical research shows that Turmeric extracts can improve symptoms of osteoarthritis. Taking Turmeric reduces pain and improves functionality in people with osteoarthritis of the knee (Madhu K, Chanda K, Saji MJ. Safety and efficacy of Curcuma longa extract in the treatment of painful knee osteoarthritis: a randomized placebo-controlled trial. Inflammopharmacology 2013;21(2):129-36)
Ginger: Ginger acts like a gentler version of Cayenne to warm the body from the core and a common medicinal use of Ginger in cooler countries has been for poor circulation. In a similar fashion Ginger can be highly helpful for arthritis where its gentle heat literally helps the blood move more freely to better flush waste products away from stiff and swollen joints.
Nettle: Study examined the safety and therapeutic benefit of a nettle leaf extract in nearly 9000 patients with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. At the end of the study 82% of patients expressed that the treatment had relieved their symptoms, 26% no longer required to take anti-inflammatory drugs and 38% said that they were willing to reduce their drug therapy (Buck G. Z Phytother 1998; 19(4):216)
Honeybush: Honeybush contains high amounts of the mineral manganese which can assist in strengthening bones and helps to prevent the risk of osteoporosis, acute joint pain and arthritis.
