Our New Medicinal Teas

To continue our support for women’s healthcare, John Hollis Laboratories is developing a series of medicinal teas to help in promoting optimal health. All of our teas are from organic sources, and are free trade certified sourced whenever possible. Please note that our teas contain all active ingredients with no "fillers."

The first in the series is our PMS Serenity Tea which contains our proprietary formula of:

Vitex (Chaste Berries) – approved by German Commission E to support healthy and regular menstrual cycles

Black Cohosh - approved by German Commission E for premenstrual discomfort and pain

Dandelion – helps balance menstrual cycle, natural diuretic*

Hibiscus – provides high levels of antioxidants**

Chamomile – naturally calming^

One heaping spoonful steeped in 8 ounces of hot water for 3 to 5 minutes is a sufficient amount. This can be enjoyed throughout the day; however, we suggest the last cup in early evening.

We also have our Menopausal Wisdom Tea which contains:

Vitex (Chaste Berries) – Used in conjunction with Black Cohosh and Dong Quai to support the menopausal transition#

Dong Quai Root- Chinese herb traditionally used to help with menopausal symptoms#

Black Cohosh – used for healthy menopause#

Wild Yam – used in China for women’s health support

Dandelion – helps cleanse the system*

Hibiscus – provides high levels of antioxidants**

Chamomile – naturally calming and renowned for its health benefits^

Steep one heaping spoonful in 8 ounces of boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes for maximum benefit. We suggest enjoying a cup early in the evening to prevent the natural diuretic effects of the tea from disturbing sleep.

Caution: These are not for use in our pregnant or lactating patients.
