Persimmon Leaf Magic!  Nutrition Boost, Strengthens Blood and Capillaries, Helps Aging/Bruising Skin!  All included as part of My Miracle Detox!

Oh, it’s a bummer how our skin ages …. Here’s more support than you ever guessed!

If you look at the ingredients of our product, you may wonder about “persimmon leaves.”  I know I did, thinking of how delicious and special the actual fruit is.  My only real experience eat persimmons was when I visited New Zealand many years ago, where they grew.  And seeing them in the store at $7 and $8 a pound!

Understandably, I had thought of persimmons as quite exotic. After we moved to Tennessee, I learned that they are actually quite common in the South! The fruits are not the big, luscious ones you would buy at the store, but still sweet and yummy when they are ripe.

I learned in a visit with Dr. Miller that he got the idea for putting persimmon leaves into the tea by watching the racoons eat them.  He knew the racoons wouldn’t be eating them so actively without a very good reason.  For many years, the Millers owned the persimmon trees and harvested the leaves for the manufacuring of the tea. 

“We had quite a job protecting the leaves from the racoons!” he joked with me one day.

Persimmon leaves are extremely beneficial from a scientific point of view that the racoons thoroughly documented from Dr. Miller’s front porch view and personal observations!

Persimmon leaves are high in fiber and they contain tannins which can help digestion. 

They also possess pro-vitamin C which is not destroyed easily by heat, allowing the vitamin C to survive the brewing process.

In Chinese Medicated Diet, a textbook in a series published by the Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, persimmon leaf tea is recommended for bleeding under the skin or bruises resulting from trauma), nose bleeds, bleeding gums, blood in the urine, irritability, red tongue with yellow coating, and a rapid pulse.

Persimmon leaf tea may help with these things because it strengthens blood capillaries as the Rutin helps prevent arteriosclerosis (fragile capillaries). 

Flavonoids lower blood pressure and increase blood flow.

No wonder we feel better when we drink the tea!

In the 1980s, the Chinese Academy of Sciences found that persimmon leaf tea contains a large quantity of Vitamin C, tannins, flavonoids, rutin, choline, carotenoids, and amino acids. In addition, the tea contains: magnesium, manganese, titanium, calcium, phosphorous among others.

Additional research has shown that drinking persimmon leaf tea promotes a healthy metabolism!

According to Japan’s “Longevity” magazine, drinking persimmon leaf tea can prevent melanoma.

The tea’s health benefits generate anti-cancer and anti-influenza virus interferons.

Persimmon Leaf Skin Treatment for Bruises and Aging Skin

While My Miracle Tea is terrific and has a strong concentration of persimmon leaves already, you may want to brew tea with a stronger concentration of the persimmon by simply adding 1 tsp. of persimmon leaves to a cup of My Miracle Tea.  

Allow it to stand overnight. Drink a cup or more of the tea daily.

Fill a spray bottle with cold persimmon leaf tea and use it as a cooling skin spray!

Add this special brewed My Miracle Tea with persimmon leaf added to aloe vera gel and apply it with sterile cotton to clean skin.

Avoid applying any skin preparation or cosmetic that contains alcohol or fragrance, often made usingalcohol as a preservative, because alcohol can weaken blood vessels.

So there you go! Awesome information!  It makes me want to head to the health food store for some persimmon leaves to boost the tea.
