JACKASS BITTERS TEA
Neurolaena lobata, commonly known as Jackass Bitters or Tres Puntas, is a traditional Mayan and Garifuna plant medicine that treats most ills due to its blood purifying and alkalizing properties.
Its properties include:
- a potent anti-parasitic agent (sesquiterpene dialdehyde) that is active against amoebas, candida, giardia and intestinal parasites.
- a powerful anti-pathogen, and a superb daily de-tox.
- effectively used to control high blood pressure and glucose levels.
- excellent for skin conditions including sores, fungal and bacterial conditions, as well as cold sores.
The Garifuna of Belize call this medicine “gifit”. We say “gifit” a try!
Preparation: use approximately 1 teaspoon of crushed leaf per 6-8 cups of hot water. Allow to steep for at least 5 minutes. This herb is extremely bitter! You may want to sweeten it with a bit of honey.
