Known and used by civilizations dating at least back to the time of the Greeks, Boron as borax has a long history. Boron is found naturally in seawater, fruits, and vegetables and is concentrated in some volcanic regions of the world. It was isolated and identified as an element in 1808. Its nutritional value has been debated since 1989. It was finally accepted as an essential nutrient element in 1990 after studies showed that it influenced the metabolism of several other nutrient elements including Calcium, Magnesium, and Phosphorus. We now believe there is also a significant synergistic relationship between Silica and Boron.
Research has confirmed that Boron plays several metabolic roles in animal physiology. The list includes:
Essential in the growth and maintenance of bone
Helps with the absorption of Magnesium
Reduces C-reactive protein
Raises the level of enzymes such as superoxide dismutase, catalase,and glutathione peroxidase
I love this bitter blend! It's soothing, supports the digestive system and tastes great. I love the balance of bitter herbs, warming and soothing herbs, as well as nourishing the liver and offering detox support. I take it daily to aid my digestion and support my whole body in easeful detoxification. It especially feels great taking it during spring as we transition out of the sluggish winter months. It's also very helpful after a heavy meal when needing some extra digestive ease.
I love this tea blend in the evening after dinner or after a heavy meal. It's very soothing to the digestive system and emotionally calming. It tastes really lovely and feels very nourishing. A great tea to have on hand!
