My Miracle Tea Ingredients

Turkey Rhubarb Root (Rheum palmatum)

Turkey Rhubarb root is well known for promoting the essential bowel peristalsis/movement in order to effectively remove stool/fecal matter, detoxify the bowel, cleanse the liver, and reducing abnormal cell division.

(Peristalsis is the involuntary contraction and relaxation of longitudinal and circular muscles throughout the digestive tract, allowing for the propulsion of contents beginning in the pharynx and ending in the anus.)

It is used primarily as an herbal medicine and is best known for the very positive cleansing and balancing effect it has upon the digestive system. Turkey Rhubarb Root helps to normalize bowel movements and is considered a safe and effective support for the bowels and irregularity.  It benefits the bowels without causing cramping or discomfort.

It comes from Asia where it has long been used as a natural support for constipation.  It works best when the body is adequately hydrated. In a study conducted in 2014, it was found that Turkey Rhubarb contains tannins that help in regulating the water absorption of the digestive tract, aiding the prevention of diarrhea.  If used long-term, we suggest eating a banana regularly to ensure adequate potassium levels.

Historically or traditionally known to support:

  • Constipation, intestinal problems
  • Bowel activity
  • Inflammation of the large intestine
  • Dysentery, bloated feeling
  • Liver and gall disorders
  • Hepatitis

Persimmon Leaf (Diospyros virginiana)

Persimmon leaves, which are a good source of important dietary antioxidants such as vitamin A & C and flavonoids, have been widely used as a tea in Asia, but are not a well-known or commonly used in the United States.

(The inclusion of this unique herb is a very special reason My Miracle Tea works so well! Finding the Persimmon Leaf used in this new My Miracle Tea “Core Formula” was truly an adventure and not for the faint of heart. We were told by two manufacturers it might not even be possible to create this formula due to its scarcity. However, we knew it was an important part of the formula and made locating it a matter of prayer. We and our manufacturers looked all over the country and in the end we found the bulk supply we needed at a wonderful herbal supply business less than an hour from us in Utah! What a blessing! Having this rare Persimmon Leaf is truly an answer to prayer — even a miracle, for which we are most grateful.)

Persimmon leaves are an excellent digestive aid that can help purify the liver. Purifying the liver is essential to helping the body rid itself of excess waste. As the natural detoxifier of your body, the liver can sometimes get overwhelmed with toxins. Your body can potentially hold onto waste for months or even years. There is a whole array of health issues that can be caused by having too many built-up toxins in your system. Health problems like joint pain, allergies, skin problems, and constipation are just a few of the many problems someone with an excess of waste can experience. By consuming persimmon leaf tea or a supplement, you can help cleanse the liver of those built-up toxins your body has been holding onto. You also may experience a boost of energy as sugars, processed foods, caffeine, and other types of “bad” foods are washed away.

Persimmon leaves have also been found to help control blood sugar levels for individuals with type 2 diabetes. It is the high concentration of magnesium that may be the source of the blood sugar level control.

Psyllium Husk (Plantago ovata)

Psyllium is a robust and powerful herb used to treat constipation as it increases the bulk in the stool to help cause movement in the intestines.

Psyllium absorbs water to expand in size to create a gentle “sweeping” and cleansing benefit as it moves through the digestive tract.

Psyllium is also used with a proper diet to treat high cholesterol. It is important to drink lots of water with Psyllium. It aids in weight loss, lowers blood sugar levels, treats IBS and used to prevent colon cancer.

As with all herbs, a nutritious diet with lots of fiber, fruits, vegetables, wise portions of nuts and seeds and plenty of water, while reducing the quantity of meat/dairy/refined sugars and excessive carbohydrates will increase the effectiveness of Psyllium husk.

Papaya Leaf (Carica papaya)

The papaya is a tropical fruit. Both the fruit itself and the leaves have many health benefits when consumed.  The leaf contains unique plant compounds that are excellent for improved digestion. Papaya leaf teas and extracts can be effectively used as an alternative therapy to alleviate uncomfortable digestive symptoms, such as gas, bloating and heartburn. Papaya leaf contains fiber — a nutrient that supports healthy digestive function — and a unique compound called papain.

Papain is well known for its ability to break down large proteins into smaller, easier-to-digest proteins and amino acids. It’s even used as a meat tenderizer in culinary practices.  Studies show that use of papain can reduce negative digestive symptoms, including constipation and heartburn, in people with irritable bowel syndrome.

Payapa leaf also benefits healthy skin and hair growth.

Marshmallow Root (Althaea officinalis)

Traditionally used to soothe and support the intestines, Marshmallow Root is an old time remedy for bladder infection, digestive upsets, intestinal disorders, and kidney problems, among others.  Known throughout the ancient Egyptian, Arab, Greek, and Roman cultures, this herb has been used continually for at least 2000 years. In traditional folk practices it was given to soothe and moisten mucous membranes of the respiratory, digestive, and urinary tracts, and also as an external poultice. This plant has been used in beverages, desserts, candies, cosmetic creams, and was the “root” of the original marshmallow candy. Marshmallow Root provides natural mucilage that supports, soothes, and moistens mucous membranes of the respiratory, digestive, and urinary tracts.

Marshmallow is a natural source of beta-carotene, amino acids, minerals and vitamins.

Fennel Seed (Foeniculum vulgare)

Aids in reducing painful gas and smelly farting. Fennel seeds gently support healthy functioning of the digestive system and are often served after meals as fennel tea.  The original Greek name for fennel was ‘marathon’ or marathos which meant ‘to grow thin’ due to the use of the fennel seed by athletes to control their weight.

It is considered to be one of the best known herbal remedies intended to either prevent formation of gas in the gastrointestinal tract or to faciliatate the expulsion of gas, thereby combatting flatulance.

Fennel is considered to be nourishing to the brain and eyes … and calming to the spirit.

Ginger Root (Zingiber officinale)

For over two thousand years, Chinese medicine has recommended Ginger Root to treat a number of health problems, including abdominal bloating, diarrhea, and vomiting. Ginger is also used in the Ayurvedic and Tibetan systems of medicine for the treatment of inflammatory joint diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism and a variety of other conditions. It has also been taken to loosen phlegm, relieve gas, and tighten the tissues, although its effectiveness for these purposes hasn’t been proven. Ginger may also ease sore throats, headaches, ulcerative colitis, some types of menstrual and arthritis pain, and fevers and aches caused by colds and flu.

One of the unique properties of Ginger Root is its ability to unlock the benefits of other herbs when combined in a blend, such as the My Miracle Tea Core Formula.

Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla)

Chamomile promotes relaxation and supports digestive health. It is often used to treat digestive disturbances, gastrointestinal spasms, inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract, and to treat coughs and colds, fevers and bronchitis.  Chamomile may help to relieve nausea, heartburn, and stress-related flatulence. It may also be useful in the treatment of diverticular disorders and inflammatory bowel conditions such as Crohn’s disease.  It’s calming benefits include soothing the stomach, alleviating gas and easing digestion.
