Siberian Pine Needle Tea
Are you looking for Siberian Pine Needle Tea in Australia? Superfoods Australia now has pure Ural Pine Needles (Pinus sylvestris) from the Siberian Taiga.
Pine needles are known for containing the compounds Suramin and Shikimic Acid, and large amounts of vitamin C.
Pine Needles have been used by Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and European herbalists traditionally for centuries to promote health and vitality and for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They were also used by the Iroquois Indigenous American's and early European settlers in north America.
In 1536 Pine Needles were used by the crew of Jacques Cartier to treat their severe scurvy during a harsh Canadian winter when there was little other sources of vitamin C available. An Iroquois decoction was made from the bark and leaves which contain vitamin C (source). The Iroquois Indians called the tree "Annedda" and Jacques referred to it as the "Tree of Life" after it saved his crew from scurvy.
Pine Needles also contain all the essential amino acids, proline, semi-essential arginine which would have helped with their recovery from scurvy.
Brew 2-3g in boiled water. Seep for 5-10 min, filter with a coffee filter and/or allow to settle.
Contraindications: Pregnancy and breastfeeding.
