Tonic herbs provide nutrients to improve systemic tone giving increased vigor, energy, and strength to the tissues of either specific organs or the whole body. This particular blend provides that balance for women of all ages; early adolescent through post menopausal phases.

Hormone imbalances can create havoc for both young and mature women, from acne to mood swings to feeling unhealthy. Estrogen and progesterone are the two hormones most associated with these symptoms, but there are more than fifty known hormones produced in the body.

Raspberries are a beneficial fruit for women of all ages. It has been long known to have potent anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and astringent properties and has been used to treat vitamin deficiencies, heart problems, diabetes and gingivitis. It is beneficial in promoting bile production, sweating and urination, as well as for the general purification of the blood. When applied directly to the skin, red raspberry leaf tea helps treat and disinfect inflamed skin. Raspberries are very nutritional and contain calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, silicon and zinc. It is also rich in vitamins B1, B2, B3, C and E.

Peppermint and ginger are both good for soothing the gastrointestinal tract. Peppermint stimulates saliva, making it possible to improve appetite, relieve cramps, and reduce pain associated with conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, or motion sickness. While ginger helps relieve inflammation, nausea, vomiting and pain and increases circulation. Ginger is cleansing to the colon and a good remedy to try and ease hot flashes, morning sickness and motion sickness. One note with peppermint, it can have a negative impact on acid reflux disease. Talk with your doctor before using peppermint therapeutically to aid in diseases of the digestive system.

Outside of its aesthetic appeal, which contributes to the overall pleasure and feeling of well being, the rose offers a soothing property to the nerves and emotional /psychological state of mind. It is regarded as a mild sedative and antidepressant. It is increasingly used in treatments for conditions of stress, nervous tension, peptic ulcers and heart disease. Another herb with soothing properties in this blend is chamomile. Within the United States chamomile has a known reputation of being a relaxing tea and can be found in many over-the-counter “sleepy time” herbal remedies. Chamomile is said to improve digestion, soothe the bowels, improve immunity, help prevent food allergies and help keep the liver healthy. It is calming to the nervous system and may be useful for treating insomnia, restlessness, nervous irritability, anxiety, nervous indigestion, flatulence, travel sickness, nasal catarrh and other forms of inflammation.

Horsetail is a source of potassium, aluminum, and manganese, along with a variety of flavonoids. These flavonoids, as well as other substances, are what appear to provide this herb with its strong diuretic effects that promote the loss of water from the body; the silicates found in horsetail are believed responsible for the herb's ability to strengthen connective tissue and gives it its anti-arthritic actions. The active components from horsetail have antimicrobial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Dandelion, which is high in natural potassium, is considered a beneficial herb for cleansing the liver. It both detoxifies and nourishes while being safe and gentle. It aids in digestion and acts as a tonic for the endocrine glands. The leaves are rich in vitamins A, C and D; the B-complex, as well as iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, manganese, copper, chlorine, calcium, boron, and silicon. Because of its high concentration of vitamins and minerals, both the root and the leaf are considered restorative and adaptogenic which aids the body in building and restoring energy reserves. Hot flashes are said to be relieved through liver-supportive herbs and hormone balancing herbs. Nettle is a natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory that contains biologically active compounds that reduce inflammation. Dr. Andrew Wiel M.D., author of Natural Health/ Natural Medicine, says he knows of nothing more effective than nettle for allergy relief. And his statement is backed up by studies at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon.

Oats are well-known as a cholesterol-lowering food, as well as a good source of fiber; however, both the whole food and the herb have many more nutritive benefits. Oats and oatstraw are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorous, the B-complex vitamins, vitamins A, C, E and K. They are also a source of potassium, magnesium, zinc and protein. It is said the herb fortifies not only the nerves, but also bones and teeth, the lungs, and the circulatory system. It supports the endocrine system, and stabilizes blood sugar levels. It is nourishing to the skin, hair, and nails. The last herb in this blend is stevia, which we all know to be a natural alternative to sugar. Stevia is said to have a negligible effect on blood glucose, so it is attractive as a natural sweetener for the management of diabetes and metabolic syndrome, and for use in carbohydrate-controlled diets. Research continues to determine the benefits of stevia for long-term use.
