Two Key Reasons.
Reason #1: Finely powdered herbs allow for maximal absorption Because we finely powder our herbs, they can be ingested rather than strained out and thrown away. In addition, finely powdered herbs are more easily absorbed into the water during the brewing process.
Reason #2: Our essiac formula was developed by Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch, MD. Rene Caisse was the Canadian nurse for whom ‘essiac’ is named (‘essiac’ is ‘Caisse’ spelled backwards). Dr. Charles Brusch, who was President John K. Kennedy’s personal physician, is credited with developing the eight-herb essiac formula in partnership with Rene Caisse. This formula includes the original four essiac herbs plus an additional four herbs which were added to enhance the formula’s effectiveness. This essiac formula is the result of eight years of research performed from 1959 through 1967 at the Brusch Medical Research Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
With an advanced formula and finely powdered herbs, it is easy to see why we are called "Ultimate Essiac" tea.
Why Choose Ultimate Essiac?
Ultimate Essiac is the result of eight years of research performed by Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch. They are the source through which all genuine essiac originated. Their work resulted in the development of an essiac formula consisting of eight herbs in a specific ratio. This formula includes the original four essiac herbs plus an additional four herbs which were added. We exclusively use this herb formula in Ultimate Essiac.
Ultimate Essiac is finely powdered in order to maximize its potential absorption. The powdered herbs are able to be left in the water after the brewing process, which allows for them to be ingested rather than strained out and thrown away.
