Pine Needle

2 oz.

Pine trees, which produce pine needles, are found in various regions around the world, particularly in temperate and boreal forests. Some potential health benefits of pine needle include:

Nutrient-Rich: Pine needles are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that contribute to overall health and well-being. They contain vitamin C, which supports immune function and collagen production, as well as vitamin A, which is essential for vision and skin health. Pine needles also contain minerals like manganese, potassium, and magnesium, which play vital roles in various bodily functions.

Immune Support: Pine tea is often consumed during the colder months to support immune health and help prevent common colds and flu. The high vitamin C content in pine needles strengthens the immune system, making it more resilient against infections and illnesses. 

Anti-inflammatory Properties: Drinking pine tea may help reduce inflammation in the body, alleviate symptoms of inflammatory conditions like arthritis and asthma, and promote overall health and wellness. The anti-inflammatory effects of pine tea can also benefit skin health by soothing irritation and reducing redness.

Respiratory Health: Pine tea is known for its respiratory benefits and is often used to relieve coughs, congestion, and respiratory infections. The aromatic compounds found in pine needles have expectorant properties, helping to loosen mucus and phlegm and facilitate easier breathing. 

Directions: add one teaspoon of pine needle to hot water. Steep for 10 to 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy. 

FYI: Please consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have a medical condition.
