It's said that there are even anti-aging benefits for your skin: beets stimulate cell production and repair, which can protect your skin from premature aging and wrinkles. Now...do you want beets in your smoothie??
This nourishing herb is said to detox, relax and provide you with lots of nutrients. This subtle tasting tea tonic has a nice blend of ‘woodsy’ with minty overtones. Burdock is an herb that is found all over the world and burdock root is even used as food. The root, leaf, and seed are all used to make medicine. A Swiss inventor, researched the seeds of the burdock plant that had attached to his clothes and to his dog's fur while on a walk. His work led to the development of the hook and loop fastener, known as Velcro!
