Pine Needle Tea has been used for thousands of years to support health and wellbeing, mainly due to its high levels of immunity-enhancing Vitamin C and other phytochemicals that can help ward off respiratory infections.
It is a powerful antioxidant that can help support the body against a range of conditions including inflammation, stress, depression, pain, parasites and even cancer. Pine Needle Tea can help stimulate circulation and metabolism, enhance cognitive function, strengthen heart health and support general healing.
Pine needles contain suramin and shikimic acid, a molecule used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat plagues and respiratory illness. They are also a good source of Vitamin A.
