Cistus Tea 1.5oz
Cistus tea supports healthy immune response, acts as as a tick and mosquito repellent, supports healthy inflammation response and supports oral, liver, and urinary health.
According to Pro Health article,"Cistus: A Natural Antibiotic, Antiviral and Biofilm Buster," "Plants in the Cistus genus exert a number of powerful antibacterial and antifungal properties against pathogens that can cause serious human health problems. Cistus incanus (one particular species of Cistus) has demonstrated antibacterial effects against Streptococcus mucans, a gram-positive bacterium found in the mouth that can contribute to tooth decay (Wittpahl, 2015). Cistus villosus and Cistus monspeliensis, two species native to Morocco, have been shown to be antibacterial against Staphylococcus aureus, which is the bacterium responsible for causing Staph infections. Antibiotic-resistant Staph infections are on the rise, so natural antibacterial substances that can address this type of infection are highly valuable!
C. villosus and C. monspeliensis also exert activity against the fungal microorganisms Candida albicans, Candida krusei, Candida glabrata, and Aspergillus fumigatus. Candida overgrowth can wreak havoc on the digestive tract, and Aspergillus infections are toxic to the immune system and the respiratory system (Sharma, 1993). The fact that Cistus can address both of these types of fungi is great news for those of us who are struggling with fungal illnesses, including toxic mold exposure. These antifungal properties could make Cistus an important part of healing protocols for people with mold-induced illness."
