Directions: For maximum benefit, medicinal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a cup. Cover cup and steep 10-15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that end up in your teacup. Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extract. Drink 2-3 cups daily. To enhance benefits, add fresh lemon juice to taste.
Duration of use: Drink daily for up to 6 weeks. Pause up to 1 week before resuming.
CAUTIONS: Consult a healthcare provider before taking if you have gallstones. Avoid use if you have loose stools. In rare cases, chicory and dandelion may be associated with allergic skin reactions. Discomfort due to gastric hyperacidity may occur after taking herbs that contain bitter substances like chicory and dandelion. Individuals with high gastric acidity or peptic ulcers may experience increased acidity when taking schisandra fruit.
Contraindications: Do not use if you have a allergy to the Asteraceae/Compositae (the daisy family) plants, or if you have obstructed bile ducts, inflammation of the gallbladder, or painful obstruction of the bowel.
