Use of the herbal tea Maytenus ilicifolia

Maytenus ilicifolia is native to the forests and grassy lands of Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina. The first people who started using this plant were Indians of the Guarani tribe, primarily for the treatment of indigestion and stomach ulcers, badly healing wounds, rashes and other skin eruptions. Leaves of the plant Maytenus ilicifolia contain phytoestrogens that have positive effect on the hormone system. They harmonize menstrual cycle and alleviate flushes in women during menopausal stages. They are able to inhibit the occurrence of osteoporosis and slow down the process of ageing.
