Product Overview

Description
  • Adianthum Capillus-Veneris
  • Product of Brazil

Raintree's sustainably harvested pure avenca (Adianthum capillus-veneris) leaf powder - rich in active and beneficial phytochemicals that occur naturally in this plant. Chemical analysis of avenca reveals an array of compounds including triterpenes, flavonoids, phenylpropanoids, and carotenoids. Interestingly, despite its ancient use, there has been no specific research on avenca to isolate and test its chemicals for biological activities. This plant has been milled into a fine powder which is suitable to stuff into capsules or to prepare your own teas, tinctures or extracts.

Suggested Use

This plant is best prepared as an infusion (tea). Use one teaspoon of powder for each cup of water. Pour boiling water over herb in cup and allow to steep 10 minutes. Strain tea (or allow settled powder to remain in the bottom of cup) and drink warm. It is traditionally taken in 1/2 cup amounts, twice daily.
