What is it?
McC Organic's special tea blend for balancing ladies' hormones.
What's it good for?
This organic tea is made from the dried leaves of Nettle, Oatstraw and red Raspberry, coarsely ground for slow brewing into a tea.
Here are some of the main reasons why nettle is so helpful for hormones:
It’s rich in iron which is necessary for making TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone).
Having enough iron in your diet supports thyroid function and helps regulate the menstrual cycle.
Regulates blood sugar levels which is especially helpful for PCOS, weight gain, fatigue and other hormonal imbalance symptoms.
Contains vitamin K, an essential nutrient for blood clotting and for easing heavy menstrual bleeding.
Supports healthy liver function, which means the liver can more efficiently do things like metabolize estrogen, get rid of toxins and convert thyroid T4 hormone to T3.
Acts as a natural energizer thanks to the fact that it contains tons of nutrients including vitamins (A, C, K), iron, potassium, proteins and more.
Oatstraw is simply the part of the plant that is left behind after the oat grains have been harvested.
Now, when it comes to hormones, Oatstraw’s main benefit is that it’s a nervine tonic
And by providing nutrients to the nerves, Oatstraw helps you feel more relaxed, less irritable and most of all, you’re better able to adapt to stress.
In fact, oatstraw’s ability to alter our stress response means that it helps the HPA axis (hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis) function better.
In addition to all of the above, Oatstraw is also rich in mucilage, which is a thick substance.
Because of that mucilage, oatstraw is soothing to inflamed tissues
In fact, taking oatstraw orally can help to moisten dry or inflamed vaginal tissue.
Red Raspberry is a classic herb for female health because it has a strong affinity with the reproductive organs.
This herb is mainly known for being a uterine tonic, meaning that it nourishes the uterus.
In addition, red Raspberry leaf also has the ability to both relax and strengthen uterine muscles.
One reason why this matters a lot is that part of the blood supply to the ovaries comes from the uterine arteries.
And since nutrients travel through the blood, this means that the nutrients from red Raspberry leaf will also benefit the ovaries.
And while we’re on the topic of nutrients, here’s a sample of what red raspberry leaf contains:
- B vitamins
- vitamin C
Last but not least, research also shows that red raspberry leaf is helpful for PMS, cramps and nausea.
