Essiac formula is made from a blend of roots, bark and herbs that grow in the Canadian wilderness of Ontario. It was originally a remedy used by the region’s native Ojibway Indians.
Here’s what you’ll find in Natures Choice Essiac Formula:
- Burdock root: Boosts immunity, stimulates digestion, promotes healthy liver function. Prevents water retention by acting as a diuretic, and supports good digestive health. Burdock contains vitamin A and selenium, which fight free radicals, and chromium, which keeps blood sugar levels stable.
- Sheep sorrel: Natural diuretic, promotes healthy kidneys and urinary tract. A source of magnesium, calcium, potassium, ascorbic acid and phosphorus.
- Turkey rhubarb root: A mild natural laxative; eases indigestion and constipation. Neutralises excess acid, and promotes a healthy digestive system.
- Slippery elm bark: A source of mucilage; promotes a healthy digestive tract and helps to treat indigestion. The bark contains high levels of calcium, magnesium and vitamins A, B, C and K. Promotes healthy mucous membranes, organs and tissues.
Did You Know? Essiac formula takes its name from nurse Rene Caisse, who discovered it in the 1920s. “Essiac” is “Caisse” spelled backwards.
