Our team travels the globe in search of healing herbs and healthy herbal teas and herbal extracts.
Healing Herbs: Our Purpose and Our Passion
We get lots of questions about our teas and extracts. First and foremost, we sell only teas and extracts made from what we call “healing herbs” — the world’s healthiest plants. We do hundreds of hours of research on each plant’s traditional and therapeutic uses. We meet with experts to learn how the plants are used in their native environments and cultures. We study the scientific literature.
For each product we sell, our team visits the source and meets with the collectors and processors personally. We back up our faith in our sources and our processors with testing.
We also get questions about the company’s origins. Owner Michael Van der Linden started the company after he began drinking Phyllanthus niruri (Chanca Piedra) tea when he had kidney stones. The tea helped with his kidney stones. Three months later he was also free of the Lyme disease that had plagued him for four years.
Today, Phyllanthus niruri tea and extract are our flagship products. Our other teas and extracts are chosen for their potential to optimize health. They are the best healing herbs on the planet.
