Holy Tea Ingredients
Rich in vitamin C. Helps to prevent allergy symptoms and itching.
Allergies are your body's overreaction to allergens, which can range from animals to food to plants. Normally, your immune system protects your body from harmful substances such as bacteria, viruses and toxins by producing antibodies. If you have an allergy, your body overreacts to exposure to certain allergens by producing antibodies which cause the symptoms you experience.
Many people treat their allergies with pharmaceutical drugs. These treatments provide rapid, temporary relief by masking the symptoms. But the symptoms reoccur when the drugs wear off, and the drugs themselves can trigger side effects like dry mouth and nasal passages or lethargy. And who needs more discomfort?
Botanical extracts offer a safe and effective way to alleviate symptoms, while avoiding the unpleasant side effects of conventional drugs. Studies have shown that supplements containing healthy phytochemicals and botanical extracts such as Persimmon Leaves work to alleviate symptoms without negative side effects.
Botanical extracts also help treat the real cause of long-term allergy problems - the immune system's excessive release of allergy-inducing chemicals -- by inhibiting histamine release and correcting immune system dysfunctions. That's good news for allergy sufferers.
Allergies make you miserable! Instead of relying on pharmaceuticals that provide temporary relief and add different symptoms to the mix, why not try Holy Tea which contains the proven extract of Persimmon Leaves?
Take control of your allergies - NATURALLY!!
Malva Leaves are used medicinally, often made into a tea to sooth membranes of the digestive system. Malva Leaf is high in mucilaginous materials, making it suitable as a protector of the respiratory system and a soother of the lungs.

Malva Leaf is mildly astringent and diuretic, and has been used to treat gastroenteritis, stomachache, and conditions of the spleen.

Holy Thistle (Scientific Name: Milk Thistle):
Holy thistle has been used medicinally for over 2000 years, most commonly for the treatment of liver and gallbladder disorders. It supports the liver in the release of toxins; its products are popular in Europe and the United States for various types of liver disease. Holy thistle is believed to have great power in the purification and circulation of the blood. It is such a good blood purifier that drinking a cup of thistle tea twice a day will cure chronic headaches. Used for stomach and digestive problems, gas in the intestines, constipation, and liver troubles. It is very effective for dropsy, strengthens the heart, and is good for the liver, lungs, and kidneys.
Milk/Holy Thistle contains silymarin, which may have specific protective effects on cells in the liver. Silymarin and other chemicals in milk thistle are believed to protect liver cells in several different ways:
- Contains antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are thought to prevent or lessen damage to body cells that is caused by a chemical process called oxidation.
- Anti-inflammatory effects of silymarin help keep liver cells from swelling in response to injury.
- Silymarin seems to encourage the liver to grow new cells, while discouraging the formation of inactive fibrous tissue.
- By changing the outside layer of liver cells, silymarin may also keep certain harmful chemicals from getting into liver cells.
Holy Thistle may also cause the immune system to be more active. Silymarin and other chemicals from Holy Thistle have also been tested in laboratory studies involving various types of human cancer cells. In general, they seem to interrupt cancer cell division as well as shortening the time that cancer cells live. They may also stop or limit the formation of new blood vessels that supply tumors. Most research has centered on breast cancer and prostate cancer, but Holy Thistle may also be useful in treating other cancers such as leukemia. Additionally, some chemicals from Holy Thistle may increase the effectiveness of current anticancer drugs. Some of these anticancer effects are being studied in early-phase human trials, but none is yet confirmed.

Marshmallow (Althea officinalis)—the herb, not the white puffy confection roasted over a campfire—has been used for centuries as both a food and a medicine. Its botanical name comes from the Greek word "altho," which means "to cure." The Romans, Chinese, Egyptians, and Syrians used marshmallow as a source of food, while the Arabs made poultices from its leaves and applied this to the skin to reduce inflammation. The mucilage, or gummy secretion, in the leaves and particularly the root is helpful for soothing sore throats, chapped skin, and minor wounds.
Professional herbalists may recommend marshmallow for the following health problems based on its long history of use in traditional healing systems, as well as results of laboratory studies.
- Common cold/sore throat
- Inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
- Stomach ulcers
- Weight loss aid (marshmallow swells with fluid and gives a sense of fullness)
- Wound healing
