THE POWER OF PERSIMMON LEAVES … And A History!
It’s always such a treat and an education to spend time with Dr. Miller here in Tennessee. He’s the formulator of this marvelous product.
(FYI: ALERT!!! There are lots of “knock-offs” of this product online that may be cheaper but are not authentic! You want to always be sure that you’ve got the “real stuff” from purchasing only at his store here in Tennessee, or only from someone like us who can quickly document their connection to him and proof of their authorized rights to share the tea through him, as we can both on our website and at Amazon. This is the reason we moved to Tennessee four years ago: to provide the authentic product for our customers and distributors without any question or confusion.)
How did he come up with the ingredients? He tells me that it was his father who challenged him to put this health drink formula together, back in the 80’s. It’s interesting to note that Dr. Miller (now in his seventies) was a professional baseball player and a high school P.E. coach. Then he acquired his numerous degrees for natural health. He and his family are constantly and carefully observing nature. It is such a joy to know them and experience their passion for detail and things being “right.”
He originally wanted to create a formula that would help his high school athletes prepare for their wrestling meets and sports weigh-ins. When it helped so much with weight loss and developing the health and strength of these young athletes, soon their families wanted it for themselves as well! That’s how it all got started … and the rest is history! The tea’s po pularity and the Miller family are part of the culture of our lovely little city.
One of the things Dr. Miller carefully observed on their farm here in Tennessee, as he was formulating his products, was how the squirrels and racoons made the most of eating the leaves from the persimmon trees on their property. His further research convinced him to add it his tea! It noticeably improved the effectiveness and became a core ingredient. For many years, the Miller’s farm provided the actual leaves that were used in the tea.
Why are persimmon leaves so very, very good for us?
According to multiple, credible sources, this particular tea contains a large variety of Vitamin C, tannins, flavonoids, rutin, choline carotenoids, and amino acids.
In addition, persimmon leaf tea has been found to contain 10 elements: Magnesium (Mg), Manganese (Mn), titanium (Ti), calcium (Ca), phosphorous (P), and more.
These elements are found to aid to healthy bodily functions. Compared to other teas, persimmon leaf tea contains a higher level of health and nutritional benefits.
Analysis has shown persimmon leaf tea contains up to 10 times the amount of Vitamin C, tannins, flavonoids, rutin, choline and essential amino acid (Study conducted 1980. CAS). A Korean Study concluded that persimmon tea contains 3.5~20.8 times more vitamin C than green tea!
Wow, isn’t that something? You know — you can ALWAYS add additional herb tea to My Miracle Tea. And you may want to buy some Pers immon Leaf tea to ramp up the health benefits even more.
