A delicious tea that is a combination of herbs that are high in Vitamin C. Sweetened with stevia, this tea tastes great and is good hot or cold.
Vitamin C helps children’s gums stay healthy and strengthens their blood vessels, which minimizes bruising from falls and scrapes that children are more susceptible to as they play. Vitamin C also helps cuts and wounds heal quickly and helps with iron absorption in the blood. Children do not need a lot of vitamin C to get their daily dose, and most can get it from popular foods high in the vitamin, which is the recommended way. Vitamin C supplements are not the best way for children to get their Vitamin C. The cool thing is, our Vitamin C Tea is a way to get vitamin C as a food and not a supplement!
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that cannot be manufactured by humans and therefore must be included with our diet.
Vitamin C supports cardiovascular health, collagen production, helps in the development and maintenance of blood vessels, cartilage, and scar tissue. Vitamin B1 helps the body get energy from food and helps with the nervous system. Vitamin B2 helps to maintain normal red blood cells and other functions such as the metabolism of iron in the body. Vitamin B9 helps with healthy skin and eyes and many other tissues. Iron aids in the absorption of all that wonderful vitamin C and with the production of hemoglobin in the blood cells. Phosphorus works with calcium to build strong bones and teeth. Sodium helps with electrolyte and PH balance in our body, making Hibiscus tea a natural “Gatorade” drink of choice! Zinc boosts the immune system and aids in the production of enzymes which children need for proper digestion. Copper is required to manufacture collagen, making it excellent for joints.

Selenium is a mineral that supports heart health, immune system, skin and eye health. Vitamin B6 aids in protecting brain health and nerve cell health. Niacin helps to turn food into glucose that the body can use for energy.
Lemongrass is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. It will also relieve joint pain, relax muscles, relieve menstrual pain, and treat headaches. It is diuretic and antioxidant.

Ginger also acts as an immune response enhancer, relieves gas and bloating, and promotes the production of saliva. To soothe a sore throat, just chew on the root raw. Studies have shown that it has protective effects on the brain. This is why it is so effective for migraines as well. Ginger promotes healthy blood pressure and may help osteoarthritis and muscle aches, maybe as effective as NSAID’S!
