Antioxidants help the body combat the effects of free-radical damage to cells. Get your daily dose with Tayuya tea, which is native to the Amazon rainforest in South America and popular in Brazil.

Tayuya (Cayaponia tayuya) is a woody vine found throughout the Amazon rainforest in South America. Tayuya is known by several botanical names, but all of these names refer to the same plant, a member of the gourd family.

\n

Rainforest people have been using Tayuya since prehistoric times, and Tayuya tea is still popular in Brazil today. This Amazon plant contains actives called cucurbitacins and glucosides, and other plant antioxidants have been isolated in the root.

Pure shredded Tayuya (Cayaponia tayuya) root.

Infuse 1 teabag in a cup of hot water for 2-5 minutes, then sweeten to taste with honey or sugar. Drink 1-3 cups per day or as recommended by your health practitioner.
