Rock Rose (Cistus ) 35g

 

Cistus  tea also called Rock Rose tea has been widely discussed in health circles in recent years due to its ability to make you repellent – at least to biting insects like mosquitos and ticks. Cistus incanus tea has been popular for decades in Europe. In fact, Cistus incanus was the 1999 European Plant of the Year, making headlines for its broad range of health benefits. The tea is an excellent pest repellent, and it makes a great topical skin cleanser to help ameliorate masked, eczema, and psoriasis. Now it’s making news once again for its ability to help the body deal with retro-viruses.

Cistus incanus tea is rich in bioflavonoids and polyphenols. Cistus tea ameliorates cold and flu symptoms in about 2 days after drinking the first cup. Studies have shown that Cistus has powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and biofilm-breaking qualities. These studies suggest that Cistus targets viral envelope proteins, preventing the primary attachment of the virus to host cells. This reduces the virulence and reproductive ability of the pathogen.

 

Health Benefits

In traditional medicine, Cistus incanus tea has been used as an anti-inflammatory and a cavity-preventing mouthwash. It has also been used to heal wounds faster, prevent ulcers, and promote heart health. In laboratory studies, Cistus incanus shows antiviral and biofilm dissolving activity.

All-natural Cistus incanus tea can help you repel ticks and mosquitoes. Not being bit means less chance of exposure to tick-borne illnesses. Studies also show that Cistus incanus tea has potent antifungal activity against the fungal microorganisms Candida albicans, Candida krusei, Candida glabrata and Aspergillus fumigatus.  Further studies suggest that Cistus inhibits the action of viral envelope proteins in a number of different types of viruses. This inhibiting of the outer surface proteins can limit the ability of a virus to attach to host cells. And that’s good news.
