E-TEA (100)

E-Tea® [Immune] is NSP’s easy-to-use, encapsulated form of traditional Essiac Tea. Essiac tea is an herbal formula used since 1922 by Canadian nurse Rene Caisse. The formula originated from a native Ojibwa medicine man.
Due to the complexity of the preparation process, it would take hours for you to make this tea at home. Thanks to NSP, it is possible to provide the same herbal combination in convenient capsule form. E-Tea contains burdock root, sheep sorrel aerial parts, slippery elm bark and Turkey rhubarb root. It is traditionally used to support immunity and help detoxify and purify the blood.
To drink as a tea, empty the contents of 2 capsules into 4 oz. hot water. Or, take 2 capsules three times daily on an empty stomach. Two capsules of E-Tea are equivalent to 2 oz. traditionally brewed Essiac Tea.
NOTICE: This product contains Turkey rhubarb. See your health care provider prior to use if: pregnant or nursing, any medical condition exists, or when taking any medication. Read and follow recommendation carefully. Do not use if diarrhea, loose stools or abdominal pain are present or develop. Not intended for prolonged use.
