Strawberry leaf is a great alternative to Black Tea or Green Tea. It's also great to drink with your cleansing teas because it aids in detoxifying the body!
Strawberry leaf treats:
excessive menstrual bleeding
lowering blood pressure
It binds with proteins, amino acids, alkaloids and other things that are of a low pH and removes them from the body, which is very cool.
Strawberry leaf has ellagic acid, which has been shown to neutralize cancer causing substances, boost the immune system and self-destruct cancerous cells.
I mix this in with both a bitter tea to counter act the taste and by itself as my replacement for Green Tea.
Strawberry leaf tea can also help pregnant women shed excess water that is causing sore and swollen ankles or hands. When using this or any other natural remedy during pregnancy, please speak with your holistic doctor first.
Can be used as a tea, in salads, and in capsules.
Western: 1 tsp - 2 tsp per cup, simmer 25-30 mins, 2-3x a day
