Raw Pine Power Plus is the power of wild harvested Northern American and Canadian white and red pine needles (both high in shikimic acid.) Long utilized as a natural medicine, it is high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is high in terpenes including alpha-pinene, D-limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP) germacrene, and many more.
BCP is known to support brain cognition, nervous system function and the body’s healthy response to inflammation. Raw, wild pine and spruce provide support for healthy eyes, respiratory health, immune function and red blood cell production. Terpenes are highly cleansing to the body, especially BCP, which also supports the detoxification of the brain and nervous system.
Shikimic acid has been shown as a potent agent for supporting immune and detoxification processes. Taoist priests drank the tea as a regular infusion, believing it aided longevity and increased stamina.
This formula is said to aid a sense of well being and is a tonic akin to 23 cups of pine needle tea.
