Cistus incanus extract has been shown to be effective against inflammation, skin ailments and diseases, microbial infections, diabetes, pain, and arterial hypertension. Cistus incanus extract is often used as a dietary supplement to help prevent and support treatment of chronic diseases due to its high levels of diverse phenolic compounds. In an in vivo model, Cistus showed anti-influenza, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and spasmolytic potential. In an in vitro model, Cistus incanus extract showed promising effects against HIV, Ebola, Marburg virus, and clinical bacteria.

The review reinforces the broad biological potential of Cistus incanus extract and sheds light on the antimicrobial activity of Cistus incanus. The study concludes that Cistus incanus has great potential to constitute a great source of infection support and future pharmacological discovery.

Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antibacterial Support

Cistus incanus antimicrobial, antiviral, and antibacterial support potential have been widely substantiated in numerous scientific studies. Not surprisingly, high-quality Mediterranean Cistus incanus is in large demand and short supply. It’s important to find a trusted source for Cistus incanus tea. Linden Botanicals sells only the highest quality Cistus incanus available. Our Cistus incanus comes from Crete, and we work closely with our trusted suppliers to make sure we keep plenty of high-quality Cistus in stock.

Cistus incanus is a Mediterranean native genus of shrubs belonging to the family Cistaceae. Cistus incanus tea should be grown in its natural Mediterranean habitat and responsibly collected at the height of potency so it has the full spectrum of bioactives expected from high-quality Cistus incanus and provide better availability of phytonutrients and higher potency. Plants growing in arid Mediterranean ecosystems endure multiple stressors and harsh conditions, such as drought, high sun exposure, and high temperatures. Mediterranean plants produce high levels of polyphenol compounds to protect themselves against these stressors.

Cistus incanus should also be naturally harvested from the buds, flowers, leaves, and stems to ensure the highest quality, most available polyphenol content. No chemicals – pesticides, heavy metals, fertilizers, or herbicides – should be used in its production.
