How It Works:
Alfalfa roots capture trace minerals needed by the structural system. Marshmallow root contains nutrients that help soothe tissues. Plantain helps the body eliminate various toxins. Horsetail provides an excellent herbal source of bioavailable minerals, including silicon, necessary for healthy joints and adjoining tissues. Silicon strengthens body tissues, including the sheath surrounding the nerves. Its astringent qualities may help support a healthy inflammation response. Wheat grass provides an excellent source of trace nutrients, especially superoxide dismutase, a natural antioxidant. Hops flowers support the nervous system and offer benefits to the urinary tract, liver and gallbladder.

Alfalfa originated in the Middle East. With records going back for thousands of years, it’s thought to be the first plant grown strictly for forage. Ancient Romans spread cultivation throughout Europe by conquest, and it has since spread throughout the world. Peoples of the world have used its leaves, sprouts and seeds for traditional remedies.
The medicinal use of horsetail dates back to ancient Roman and Greek times. The Greeks used it as a diruetic and for circulatory support. The popular 17th century herbalist Nicholas Culpepper touted its use for ulcers, urinary support and skin health, and Native Americans used horsetail specifically for kidney health.
Oat straw was used in European baths to soothe sore muscles and joints as well as to support the kidneys. The King’s Dispensary touted it as one of the most important restoratives.
Marshmallow was a traditional medicine long before the French turned it into a tasty treat. Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Arabian practitioners used this plant for a variety of health needs.
