What this tea can do for you
Cleavers are used to increase urine flow to relieve fluid retention. It is also used for painful urination, enlarged or infected lymph nodes, and a skin condition called psoriasis. People sometimes apply cleavers directly to the skin for ulcers, enlarged glands, breast lumps, and skin rashes.
- Lymphatic System - Cleavers enhances the function of the lymphatic system and improves its ability to flush out toxins, decrease congestion and reduce swelling. The lymph-cleansing action of this herb in turn enhances the function of the immune system.
- Kidney Health - The diuretic action of Cleavers helps to flush out waste, toxins and excess fluid from the kidneys. When blood flow to the kidneys declines due to illness, they respond by retaining water, which is why diuretic herbs can be useful. Diuretic herbs help the kidneys release excess sodium into the urine and can prevent the build up of other minerals that can cause kidney stones if left unchecked. If you have a pre-existing kidney condition it is vital that you speak to your healthcare provider before using diuretic herbs.
