Introducing Time for Pause Tea

Introducing a New Tea Here at Lightfoot Farm:  Time for Pause Tea
Time for Pause Tea is good for women in their menopausal years. It contains red clover flowers, nettle leaf, comfrey leaf, milky oats, and stevia.  Red clover is rich in isoflavones, chemicals that act like estrogens.  It may help with hot flashes, cardiovascular health and osteoporosis.  Studies so far  are inconclusive.  Red clover contains low levels of coumarins ,which thin the blood. This tea should not be used by individuals on the prescription medicine Warfarin (Coumadin). Nettles (Urtica dioica) have been known to help rehydrate vaginal tissues. They contain vitamins, minerals, proteins, and micronutrients that are nourishing for many functions in the body. They also are good to maintain healthy bones. Comfrey leaves are safe, according to herbalist Susan Weed (roots can cause liver damage). Comfrey is known to be good for vaginal lubrication, to strengthen bones, to soothe joint pain, and to improve mental functioning.
